2 at least 10 ECTS/year 2 at least 10 ECTS/year
3 at least 25 ECTS/year 3 at least 25 ECTS/year

5 at least 12 ECTS/year - -
6 at least 13 ECTS/year - -

(*) “Year” refers to the number of years of enrolment from the first year of matriculation in any University, as in the case of transfer from another University or Department.

For the purpose of calculating merit for obtaining benefits, any years of suspension from studies are not counted, except in cases where the suspension has been determined by disciplinary measures.
Furthermore,  credits cannot be taken into account if they come from:

  • exams/placements relative to previous studies that ended with a qualification or following withdrawal/loss of student status or from other activities, including exams taken prior to matriculation for which a credit exemption was obtained;
  • exams taken as single courses prior to matriculating in your current programme;
  • incomplete exams (for example, if you did not take all parts of a multiple-part exam).

After six years of enrolment (for bachelor’s degree programmes) or four years of enrolment (for master’s degree programmes), part-time students will be considered as full-time students and will be subject to the same merit requirements.

Students who matriculated as part-time students and subsequently switched to full-time status should calculate their years of attendance (necessary for the calculation of academic merit as shown in the table above) as follows: two academic years attended with part-time status are counted as one full-time year and a single “part-time year” will also be considered as equivalent to one full-time year. Similarly, students who matriculated as full-time students and subsequently switched to part-time status should count every academic year attended with full-time status as two “part-time years”.

EU Students having an ISEE certification for income-based benefits for the right to university studies of less than EUR 24.000 are entitled to the payment of the sole Regional tax for financial aid and stamp duty for the whole 2022/2023 academic year. 

Extra-EU students can apply for ISEE based reduction of tuition fees only if they meet the requirements to obtain the status of equivalence with Italian/EU citizen.

Instalments

The tuition fees for a.y. 2022/2023 are divided into three instalments. Students can enroll to the academic year by paying the first instalments, which every student is required to pay. 
The total amount of fees for the whole academic year is calculated on the basis of the benefit application (if submitted), of the ISEE declaration and of the merit requirements. Students must meet the deadlines for all the aforementioned steps. 

The 500 Euro first instalment includes the 176 Euro regional tax for financial aid and the tuition fees. If you meet the requirements established by the Student Act, you can pay the 176,00 EUR regional tax only.
The 16 Euro stamp duty is added to the first instalment amount only if you enroll in your first year or if you enroll after withdrawal/loss of student status/transfer from another University.

The payment of the first instalment is due by 3 October 2022.

Students can also enroll in a bachelor's degree with open admission program by paying the first instalment by 2 November 2022 and a 50.00 Euro penalty for late payment.
Students can also enroll to master's degree with open admission program by paying the first instalment from 15 November to 19 December 2022 (a penalty for late payment may be added).
Enrollment to bachelor's and master's degree courses with limited admission programmes is ruled according to the deadlines established by the respective call for enrollments.

Students can exclusively pay the Regional tax for financial aid and the possible stamp duty also if they are included among:

  • recipients of regional scholarships or students eligible for scholarships in AY 2021/2022 who are enrolling on-track, meet the requirements of the call and are intending to re-apply for a scholarship for AY 2022/2023. Should you fail to meet any of these conditions you must contact the Financial Aid Unit beforehand;

  • foreign students beneficiary of a scholarship from the Italian Government under the development cooperation programs;
  • Students having a refugee status and subsidiary protection status.

If the amount paid in the first instalment exceeds the amount effectively due, you will be automatically refunded onto your CartaConto in summer 2023.

The amount due will be determined:

  • In November 2022 if you have correctly completed the procedure for requesting a reduction and you meet all the conditions necessary for obtaining benefits by 3 October 2022;
  • in April 2023 if you do not request the reduction by 3 October 2021. In this case you will be charged the late fee of 50.00 euros. In any case you will have to pay the second instalment before the recalculation in April.

Late payments

  • 50,00 EUR if you pay the first instalment from 4 October 2022 to 2 November 2022;

The second instalment, due only if you do not meet the requirements established by the “Student Act”, is given by the difference between the amount due to be paid and the amount paid with the first instalment and can be a maximum of 700.00 EUR.

The payment of the second installment must be carried out by 12 December 2022 (except for students enrolled for the first year of the master’s degree with deadline set on 19 December 2022). 

Students who have correctly applied for the reductions and possess the necessary requirements to obtain the benefits within the deadline of 3 October 2022, will have their tuiton fees recalculated before the payment of the second instalment.
Students can request the benefits later, on condition that they meet the deadlines that are indicated above: in this case the due amount will be recalculated within April 2023.
