Tuition Fees

Contribution Types

Three types of contribution have been defined, for each contribution class, which consider the number of ECTS credits obtained and the year of registration for the degree course:

- Ordinary taxation is applied to those students who are:

  1. enrolled on a degree course in the 2017/2018 academic year;
  2. enrolled in the 2016/2017 academic year and who have obtained at least 10 ECTS credits (or 6 ECTS credits for part-time students) from 10th August 2016 to 10th August 2017;
  3. registered within a delay of maximum one year later than the natural duration of the course and those who have obtained at least 25 ECTS credits (or 18 ECTS credits for part- time students) from 10th August 2016 to 10th August 2017;

In this Ordinary taxation, a “no tax area” is foreseen for students who have an ISEE-University between 0 Euros and 13,000 Euros (students will have to pay only the regional fee).

- Superior taxation is applied to those students who registered within a delay of maximum one year later than the natural duration of the course and who have obtained at least 6 ECTS credits from 10th August 2016 to 10th August 2017;

The tuition fee will be calculated based on the ISEE-University, as follows:

  • For an ISEE-University between 0 Euros and 90,000 Euros: the contribution will be proportional to the value and will vary according to the contribution class and the type of taxation of the course;
  • For ISEE-University of more than 90,000 Euros or for students that have no ISEE-University: the contribution will be the maximum foreseen for the contribution class and type of taxation of the course.

In cases where it is not possible for foreign students to calculate their ISEEU-University and submit it to the University, the following taxation will be applied:

Verification Procedure Regarding Merit Requirements Needed for the Calculation of University Taxes

The evaluation system regarding merits (the number of ECTS credits obtained) is calculated automatically and requires no official application by the student.
The ECTS credits (CFU) must be obtained within the twelve months before August 10th preceding registration.
Only the registered exams within the above-mentioned date will be considered, except for credits obtained after an internship attended by students of health care degree courses. In this case, credits will be considered even if registered later than August 10th and before September 30th.

ECTS credits (CFU) of eventual “integrated” exams need to be registered by August 10th.

Credits obtained abroad at partner Universities during a student mobility program will be evaluated only if registered in the twelve months before August 10th preceding registration.

ISEE-University

Students who wish to apply for university tax reductions must, through their reserved area of the Delphi portal, authorize the University to consult the INPS database in order to obtain their ISEE- University certificate. The deadline for this procedure is December 15th, 2017.

Students who decide not to apply for a reduction in tuition fees, who do not have a valid ISEE- University, who have an ISEE-University of more than 90,000 Euros or who do not authorize the consultation of the INPS database will automatically have to pay the maximum fee foreseen for their contribution class.
The University will not accept ISEE certifications that:

  • are incomplete or compiled in the wrong way
  • are deemed to be ineligible to obtain tax benefits for University studies

Recommendations:

- All students, independently from the LazioDisu scholarship, have to submit the “Scheda Raccolta Dati” at the Welcome Office, in order to obtain tax reductions in case the LazioDisu scholarship is no longer awarded or is withdrawn.
The deadline for this procedure is December 15th, 2017.

- Students who submit a “domanda cautelativa” (precautionary application) in order to obtain a reduction in tuition fees due to their income and who fail to graduate in time must, through their reserved area of the Delphi portal, authorize the University to consult the INPS database in order to obtain their ISEE-University certificate. The deadline for this procedure is December 15th, 2017.

 

WHAT IS THE ISEE CERTIFICATION AND WHAT IS IT FOR?

The ISEE (Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator) certificate is the instrument used to evaluate the economic situation of students who are eligible for benefits. This can be obtained by combining and considering three elements: income, assets and family. For the purpose of tuition fees, if parents are not members of the family unit, students can be considered to be a single member of the family only in the following cases:
- students have not been living in the original family home (or in a house owned by a family member) for at least two years since the date of their original enrolment application for each time they apply for a course.
- the student has an adequate income.

Both conditions must be satisfied, otherwise students will be considered as a member of their parents’ family.
In accordance with current legislation, the only ISEE considered valid for the calculation of tax brackets and other benefits provided by the University is the ISEE-University or “Scheda Raccolta Dati” for International students.

 

DEADLINE FOR THE ISEE-UNIVERSITY SUBMISSION

The ISEE-University certificate must be requested by December 15, 2017. Students who have already applied for an ISEE-University Certificate (valid until 2018) during the year 2017 do not have to apply for a new ISEE-University, although they will have to submit the “Scheda Raccolta Dati” (equivalent document of ISEE-University, for international students) at the Welcome Office by December 15th, 2017.

If the ISEE-University certificate will not be presented by the deadline of December 15th, 2017, students will be placed in the highest income bracket and therefore will not be entitled to any reduction in their tuition fees.

If the ISEE-University certificate is presented after December 15th, 2017, a penalty will be applied as follows:

Application dates Penalty
From December 16th 2017 to March 15th 2018 150 Euros
From March 16th 2018 to October 31st 2018 200 Euros

 

Late Submission Penalty

The penalty for the late submission of ISEE-University may be combined with other penalties such as a late payment of tuition fees. The penalty for the late submission of your ISEE-University will not be applied in the following cases:

  • Enrolment in a Master Degree if the deadline for the enrolment is set later than December 31st, 2017;
  • Enrolment in courses with an admission test after December 31st, 2017;
  • Enrolment after December 31st, 2017 due to a transfer from another University.

Students must retain their ISEE-University certificate as the University may in the future request to check it.

 

HOW TO APPLY

Foreign non-independent students whose family resides abroad and Italian students with their incomes abroad, who would like to request a reduction of tuition fees, will have to obtain their “Scheda Raccolta Dati” (equivalent document of ISEE-University, for international students), from any CAF Office by December 15th, 2017.

To obtain the “Scheda Raccolta Dati”, students must provide details regarding their incomes and assets in Italy and their incomes and assets abroad of each member of their family.

These documents need to be issued by the competent authorities in the country where the incomes are produced. They must also be officially translated by the Italian Diplomatic Authorities of that country together with the income expressed in Euros.

In those countries where obtaining such documents is difficult, the documentation may be requested at the foreign diplomatic Authorities in Italy and certified by the Prefecture in accordance with art.33 of the Decree of the President of the Republic, n. 445 of 28th December, 2000.

For foreign students from particularly poor countries indicated in the Ministerial Decree of 9th June 2017, n.1455, their income will be evaluated according to the documentation issued by the Italian Embassy in the student’s country of origin in order to certify that the student does not belong to an upper-class family with a high income (DPCM 97472001).

Having obtained their certificates, students must then go to the Welcome Office and consign a copy of their final “Scheda Raccolta Dati” certificate issued by CAF together with all the documentation related to the certification. Following this, students will be able to check how much they will have to pay in their second instalment.

Should any errors come to light, students must report them to the following email address: caf@supporto.uniroma2.it

N.B. The University will apply the following tuition fees to foreign students who either do not provide or cannot provide an ISEE-University certificate:
