ISEE under 13,000 EUR
If your ISEE is under 13,000 EUR you will only be required to pay the following for the entire academic year 2019/2020:
- the regional tax for financial aid of 171.00 EUR;
- stamp duty of 16.00 EUR.
N.B. The regional tax for financial aid is calculated in proportion to the ISEE indicator for financial aid declared by the students, as shown in the following chart:

|3||from 31,497.57 EUR onwards||171.00 EUR|
Attention: If you do not carry out the required procedure or do not comply with the requirements set out below, although in possession of an ISEE economic situation of under 13,000 euros, you will be subject to the maximum contribution provided for the majority of students enrolled in Bachelor’s and Master’s degree courses.
To benefit from the reduction of student fees you will need:
- to request ISEE certification for financial aid for the right to university study;
- Complete and submit the benefit request in your reserved area. Attention: in order for it to be correctly received by the offices, it is necessary to complete the application and submit it with the special ‘submit for reductions application’ button. At the end, the receipt for successful submission will be issued, which you must keep;
- to register for the academic year within the deadlines set by the University.
You need to do the above by:
- 30th September 2019;
- 16th December 2019 with a 50.00 euro late fee;
- 16th December 2019, without arrears, if you are a transfer student or you register for the first year of a master’s degree programme;
- 31st March 2020, without arrears, if you have withdrawn your degree application. ATTENTION: this deadline has been postponed to 30th April 2020 due to the COVID-19 emergency.
To obtain a reduction in the above amount you must meet the following conditions:
- you must have completed your enrolment in academic year 2019/2020, by paying the first instalment of your tuition fees by the administrative deadlines laid down for the academic year 2019/2020;
- if you are enrolled in a bachelor’s degree programme you must not have another degree, either under the old system (even prior to DM 509/1999) or under the new system, whether obtained in Italy or abroad, or a diploma issued by the Conservatory/Fine Arts Academy, or a three-year first-level diploma issued under Italian law no. 508/1999;
- if you are enrolled in a master’s degree programme, you must not have another degree obtained prior to DM 509/1999, specialist degree, or master’s degree, obtained either in Italy or abroad, a diploma issued by the Conservatory/Fine Arts Academy, or a two-year second level diploma issued under Italian law no. 508/1999;
- you must not still be enrolled in a degree programme under the old system prior to DM no. 509/1999;
- you must have completed the minimum credit requirements (credits effectively registered in your student’s record book) between 11 August 2018 and 10 August 2019 as indicated below:
Bachelor’s degree programmes
|Year*||Full-time students – ECTS||Part-time students – ECTS|
|2||at least 10 ECTS/year||0|
|3||at least 25 ECTS/year||at least 5 ECTS/year|
|4||at least 25 ECTS/year||at least 5 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 coming 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”.
How to pay less for the first instalment
If you have an ISEE for income-based benefits for the right to university studies of less than 20,000.00 euros, you can pay the reduced amount for the entire 2019/2020 academic year instead of the first instalment of 700.00 euros, only if you follow the procedure below before the deadlines.
If you enrol in the first year, after having finished the pre-enrolment procedure and before paying the first instalment within the deadline for enrolment, you must:
- Apply for/request ISEE 2019 for income-based benefits for the right to education;
- Fill out and send the application for financial aid online in your Reserved Area or logging in at this link: https://esse3.unive.it/auth/Autocertificazioni/Autocertificazione.do .
If you register in one of the years following the first, after having checked whether you meet the merit requirements, and before paying the first instalment, you must:
- Apply for ISEE 2019 for the income-based benefits for the right to education;
- Fill out and send the application for financial aid online in your Reserved Area.

The first installment of 700.00 euros includes:
- the regional tax for financial aid of 171.00 EUR;
- stamp duty of 16.00 EUR;
- all-inclusive tuition fee.
If you belong to one of the following categories, you may pay the regional tax for financial aid and 16.00 EUR stamp duty only at the time of enrolment:
- recipients of regional scholarships or students eligible for scholarships in AY 2018/2019 who are enrolling on-track, meet the requirements of the call and are intending to re-apply for a scholarship for AY 2019/2020.

- in April 2019 if you do not do it by 30th September 2019. In this case you will be charged the late fee of 50.00 euros. You will have to pay the second instalment before the recalculation in April.
If the amount paid in the first instalment exceeds the amount effectively due, you will be refunded by payment onto your University CartaConto.
Payment of the first instalment for students who are not enrolled in their first university year should be carried out by 30th September 2019.
For those enrolled in the academic year 2019/ 2020 however, it is expected from the time you enrol until 30th September 2019. It is possible to pay the first installment, with a penalty surcharge of 50.00 euros before 31st October 2019 for only open admission Bachelor’s degree courses.

You will only be required to pay the second instalment if you do not meet the requirements laid down by the “Student Act” or if you have to pay the penalty surcharge.
The second instalment will be the difference between the amount paid in the first instalment and the amount payable. It can be up to 500.00 euros.
If, you correctly complete the procedure for requesting the reduction and you meet all the necessary conditions to obtain the benefit by 30th September 2019, the second instalment will not be charged as it will not be due. If, however, you carry out the procedures after 30th September 2019, but by 16th December 2019, you will have to pay the second instalment, which will be debited in your reserved area.
