In recent years, the calculation of Italian university tuition fees have changed. Please remember that your annual tuition fees at Tor Vergata depend on your first year of enrollment.
No- EU Students enrolled in 2019/2020 and previous years will keep paying tuition fees according to the tuition system described here until the end of their academic career.
Currently, in order to be considered as an Italian fee status student for tuition fee purposes, you generally need to have your family income declared in Italy so that the University will get your ISEE and calculate your annual tuition fee on the basis of your incomes.
Even if you are a student regularly paying taxes in one of the EU Countries, you will be considered into the Italian fee status students and your tuition fee will be calculated on the basis of your family income.
Finally, NON-EU students are divided into 3 groups for tuition fee rates: those declaring their income overseas, those declaring their income in one of the EU Countries and those enrolling at the School of Economics.
Annual tuition fees are payable in two instalments at Tor Vergata with deadlines in November and in March; detailed information about deadlines will be published into the Students Guide 2020.
Italian and EU Students – please refer to the Students Guide 2020/21, chapter 7.

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 16th December 2020.
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 for their contribution class.
The university will not accept ISEE certifications that:
- Have expired and which are therefore invalid;
- are incomplete or compiled in the wrong way;
- are deemed to be ineligible to obtain tax benefits for University studies;
After the acquisition of the ISEE-University certification, taxes and contributions will be recalculated. Following this, no new forms of certification will be permitted for the remaining part of the academic year.
What is an ISEE certification and what is it for? The ISEE certificate (Indicatore Situazione Economica Equivalente - Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator) is the instrument for assessing the economic situation of individuals who request subsidised social benefits. It is reserved for students from EU and non-EU countries who belong to a family unit with declared incomes in Italy.
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 enrollment application for each time they apply for a course.
- the student has an adequate income.
If both conditions are not satisfied, 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.
How to apply for an ISEE-University
In order to obtain the ISEE for services regarding the right to study (ISEE-University), students must fill in the form entitled “Dichiarazione sostitutiva unica (DSU) integrale” .
-The DSU contains information about the family and its members and about the assets and incomes of each member of the family. It must be filled out and handed in at the following offices:
- Centri di Assistenza Fiscale CAF
- INPS, also online using the INPS portal
Once compiled and submitted their DSU, students must wait for an average of ten working days to obtain their ISEE-University.
Given that in order to compile the DSU, a lot of information concerning property, assets, and income must be collected, the procedure may be time-consuming. Students should submit their DSU as soon as possible to the CAF office which will provide the ISEE-University.
The University cannot offer a direct DSU service.
As soon as INPS or CAF provides the ISEE-University certification, the student must check on the Delphi platform to verify the correct acquisition and recalculation of the second instalment.
Should any errors come to light, the student must report them through the following email address:
In order to access the benefits provided for the reduction of university contributions, EU students belonging to a family unit whose income was earned abroad and who register or enroll in years following the first one have to obtain the ISEE-University certificate (data collection form for university indicator) at any CAF at national level by 16 DECEMBER 2020 and deliver it to the Student Secretarial Office.
To obtain an ISEE-University certificate, 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 DPR no. 445 dated 28th December 2000.
For foreign students from particularly poor countries indicated in the Ministerial Decree no. 1455 dated 9th June 2017, 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 dated 9th April 2001).
Once obtained their certificates, students must submit to the Foreign Student Secretarial Office a copy of their final ISEE-University certificate issued by a CAF office together with all the documentation related to the certification. Following this, students will be able to check the amount they will have to pay in their second installment.
Should any errors come to light, students must report them to the following email address:
Deadline for the ISEE-University submission The ISEE-University certification regarding the right to participate in a university course must be applied for by 16th December 2020. On receiving the ISEE certification, students, through the Delphi portal, must immediately authorize the university to obtain the ISEE-U from the INPS portal within the validity period of the certificate.
Through the Delphi portal, student must authorize the university to acquire the ISEE-U from the INPS portal within the validity period of the certificate.
Students who already have a valid ISEE-University do not need to apply for a new ISEE-University certificate for enrolment in the 2020/2021 academic year but must authorize the university to acquire the ISEE-University certificate from the INPS database through its reserved area of the Delphi portal by 16th December 2020.
Therefore, students must not consign any document to the university, nor should they send their ISEE-University by e-mail.
Should the DSU not be presented by the deadline of 16th December 2020, students will be placed in the highest income bracket and therefore will not be entitled to any reduction in their tuition fees.
If the DSU is presented after 16th December 2020, a penalty will be applied as follows:
Application dates: 17 December 2020 - 16 March 2020.
Penalty: 150 €
Application dates: 17 - 29 March 2021.
Penalty: 200 €
After the acquisition of the ISEE-University certification, the taxes and contributions will be recalculated. Following this, no new forms of certification will be permitted for the remaining part of the academic year.
- Students who have applied for a DISCOLAZIO scholarship, in the event that this scholarship is not awarded or is withdrawn, in order to obtain tax reductions, will have to, however, 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 16th December 2020.
- 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 16th December 2020.
