Tuition fees and exemptions

Students enrolled on degree programmes contribute to the costs of higher education services by paying the enrolment fee (based on merit) and contributions (based on economic status).

For the academic year 2019/2020 the maximum contribution is set at 1912.00 euros.

The university enrolment fee is determined on the basis of the student’s career (number of credits obtained). For the first enrolment (matriculation) the fees are determined according to the final mark obtained at the end of secondary school.  University contributions are determined and graded according to the economic status of the student’s family. For this purpose the University has determined a way of calculating the fees and the contributions due for each degree programme.

See methods for calculating both registration and contributions.

Students who do not accept the highest contribution limits must submit a ‘Dichiarazione sostitutiva unica – DSU (substitute declaration)’ from a  CAF (income tax assistance office). The CAF office will issue the student with the ‘ISEEU’ (indicator of equivalent economic status for university purposes) declaration for the previous year and will notify the University.

The CAF declaration and any other information must be submitted within the fixed deadline.

Students must also pay a regional tax (ADiSU: Agency for the Right to University Study), which is set at 120 euros (ISEE (indicator of equivalent economic status)  lower than 23,000 euros), 140 euros (ISEE from 23,000 up to 46,000 euros), 160 euros (ISEE  over 46,000 euros).

Students who already have a degree are required to pay the maximum amount of tax and contributions.

1st instalment: 29 November 2019
2nd instalment: 30 April 2020

The amount of the first instalment is determined automatically during the online registration procedure.

See methods for calculating both registration and contributions.

The regional ADiSU tax and stamp duty fee (16 euros) are added to the first instalment. 

Students who intend to apply for an ADiSU scholarship at the time of registration only need to pay stamp duty and the regional fee. Payment must be made by the first deadline set for the academic year (early in November).

Students who have applied to transfer to another faculty/university by this date are required to pay a single transfer fee of 67.60 euros and stamp duty fee (16 euros).

N.B.: after this date the first registration instalment is also due.

The second instalment must be paid by 30 April and the third instalment by 30 June of each year, or no later than the deadline stated on the payment slip (MAV), but the student may pay the amount due as a lump sum within the period allowed for the payment of the second instalment.

Payments of up to  5 euros need not be made. Similarly, credits of up to 5 euros are not refunded.
