In order to apply for the benefits for the right to education for the A.A. 2021/2022, students must (within the relative deadlines):
- request the ISEE for benefits for the right to education;
- complete and submit the benefits application from your reserved area;

ISEE for University financial aid
The ISEE indicator is a tool assessing the effective income and asset situation of anyone requesting financial aid, and is obtained by combining and assessing three factors: income, assets and the composition of the household.
Students who apply for economic subsidies are part of their households (same ISEE of their parents) unless the following conditions apply:
- Students who have been residing outside of their family home for at least two years before the issue of their Single Substitute Declaration (DSU) in a house that does not belong to a member of their households;
- Declared income as employees or similar incomes, which they receive from at least two years and not lower than EUR 6,500.00, for a single-member household.
ISEE certification is needed to access all forms of university financial aid. You don't need to send ISEE certification to University, which imports it from INPS database automatically by the 24 hours subsequent to the submission of benefits application.
Please be aware that the ISEE certificate will not be considered and/or imported in the following cases:
- when it does not apply to the benefits for the right to education for the applicant in question;
- the certification was submitted after the deadline;
- when it has omissions/non-conformities flagged by the Revenue Agency, indicated on the certificate and not resolved within the deadlines;
- where it is not valid for the academic year of reference of the application (e.g. ISEE 2021 for A.Y.2021/2022);
- you have not compiled and transmitted your online request for financial aid;
- you enrolled in the academic year after the deadlines;
- you do not meet the minimum merit criteria needed to access financial aid;
- you already have a university diploma at the same level.
How to request ISEE certification and financial aid
Students residing in Italy:
If you are an Italian national or financially independent non-Italian national residing in Italy, you must request your ISEE for financial aid by compiling the DSU self-certification form concerning the composition of your household and the income and asset situation of each member of the household. You can either do so by yourself by filling in the form in the “online services” section of the INPS [IT] website or with the help of a CAF centre or professional tax consultant. Should more than one student from the same household be applying for financial aid, certification must contain a note specifying that the ISEE applies to financial aid for each student concerned.
On average, ISEE certification is issued within 10 working days of DSU completion.
ISEE 2021 certificates must be requested (the date shown on the receipt of submission of the DSU) by:
- 30 September 2021 for the reduction of fees. The deadlines for the Right to Education Scholarship and Generic Collaboration shall be indicated in the respective calls for application published in July 2020.
- 17 December 2021 exclusively for the reduction of fees. This deadline is subject to a penalty of €50, with the exception of students enrolled in the first year. The penalty is also applied for students who submit the application without eligibility for any benefits
A later deadline for requesting a reduction in fees of 31 March 2022 is applied only for students in their final year who forfeit the extraordinary session of the A.Y. 2021/2022. The ISEE must be that of reference for the year in which the benefits were requested.
Italian or non-Italian nationals residing abroad or not financially independent:
If you are an Italian or non-Italian national residing abroad, you may request an ‘ISEE parificato’ (ISEE equivalent) used in cases where it is not possible to present an ISEE declaration. If you are a non-EU student the “ISEE parificato” will be taken into consideration only for applications to scholarships and student mobility (not for tuition fee reductions).
You should request an ‘ISEE parificato’ if you are:
- a non-Italian national resident abroad;
- non-Italian national residing in Italy who is not financially independent;
- Italian national resident abroad;
- Italian national risiding in Italy not financially independent with parents resident abroad.
To obtain the equivalent ISEE, students should book an appointment at the CAF (tax office) licensed with Ca’ Foscari University, starting from July 2021 (the service is free of charge).
- Venice headquarters, Fondamenta del Gaffaro 3536; tel. 041/5491188
- Mestre headquarters, via Ca’ Marcello 10; tel. 041/5491100.
Any equivalent ISEE issued by a CAF other than those enlisted, will be not considered.
You must come to your appointment at the mentioned CAF offices with all the required documents to generate the "ISEE parificato". The certified ISEE equivalent will be calculated on the basis of your income and assets abroad and will be automatically transmitted to Ca' Foscari by the CAF offices.
Equivalent ISEEs issued by Tax Support Centres (CAFs) other than those covered by the convention.
If you are abroad, waiting for a visa, and are therefore unable to go personally, you must send an email, in any case within the deadlines, with the subject header displaying your surname and name (specifying if it is the first email, should it be necessary to send more than one), to the address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The email must include the following attachments in PDF format:
- the 2021 ISEE equivalent application completed in digital format and signed in original;
- the documents required for calculating the ISEE.
After forwarding via email, the original copies of the 2021 ISEE equivalent application and the documents for ISEE calculation must be delivered by appointment to the CAF CGIL tax support offices in Venice or Mestre, which have agreements with the University.
Requesting entitlements on-line
In addition to submitting ISEE certification, in order to apply for benefits for the right to education, such as reduction in fees, scholarships, collaborations, you must complete and submit the benefits application online in your reserved area, with which you grant the university mandate to receive from INPS all the information included in the ISEE certificate. Moreover, students should enroll for the first 2021/2022 academic year by paying the first installment as provided for by relevant administrative provisions and calls.
Benefits application shall be available starting from July and by:
- 30 September 2021 for the reduction of fees. The deadlines for the Right to Education Scholarship and Generic Collaboration shall be indicated in the respective calls for application published in July 2020;
- 17 December 2021 exclusively for the reduction of fees. This deadline is subject to a penalty of €50, with the exception of students enrolled in the first year. The penalty is also applied for students who submit the application without eligibility for any benefits.
A later deadline for requesting a reduction in fees of 31 March 2022 is applied only for students in their final year who forfeit the extraordinary session of the A.Y. 2020/2021. The ISEE must be that of reference for the year in which the benefits were requested.
Students who have not enrolled or who are having problems in finding the subsidy application within their reserved area, can apply through the link.
If you are not yet enrolled but you have already been student at this University, you will find the benefits application in your reserved area.
After completing the form you must confirm your request for it to be considered valid, thus completing the electronic submission of the request.
The IT system will issue a receipt that will also be sent via email to your university email address (email@example.com) and which must be kept as proof of submission.
N.B. You can check yourself whether you have successfully submitted the benefits application and whether your ISEE has been imported by clicking on “benefits application summary”. If you have submitted the benefits application and received the ISEE calculated by INPS and you do not see confirmation in your reserved area, please open a support ticket.
The university is required by law to carry out random checks to confirm the truthfulness and accuracy of the information submitted in self-certification. Making a false statement is not only a criminal offence but will lead to administrative penalties being applied.
