3.    Possibility of programme shortening and enrolment in years following the first after changes of a degree programme.

If students applying for a change of degree programme took exams and acquired ECTS in the degree programme they belong to, the Programme Area Council of the degree programme they intend to change to:

a)    resolves upon the total or partial recognition of the students’ academic records;

b)    validates the entirety or part of the exams passed and, according to the ECTS recognised, may shorten the duration of the same degree programme by indicating the academic year which students are enrolled in;

c)    formulates the study plan for the achievement of the degree.
 

  • As to master’s degree programmes with test for assessment of curricular requisites and personal skills, the Programme Area Council verifies whether students possess such curricular requisites and personal skills. Failure to possess such requisites and/or personal skills, the application to change a degree programme will not be accepted.
     
  • As to bachelor’s degree programmes with local restricted access, single cycle master’s degree programmes and master’s degree programmes with restricted access, the Programme Area Council also takes into account the number of available places in the academic year in which students should enrol, according to their academic records; should there not be any available places, the application to change a degree programme will not be accepted.

As to master’s degree programmes, the following ECTS cannot be recognised

-      the ECTS acquired to achieve the enrolment in the master’s degree programme;

-      the ECTS acquired to obtain the curricular requisites necessary to enrol in the master’s degree programme.
 

4.    Non-EU students permanently residing abroad may require the change to a different degree programme only after the year following their enrolment.

5.    Submission of the application to change a degree programme. To obtain the change of degree programme, students must have duly paid tuition fees, regional tax and additional fees, if any, relating to the previous academic years.

The application on stamped paper may be submitted:

-      to the front desk of the Student Office of the degree programme that students belong to during opening hours;

-      by means of registered letter with return receipt addressed to Settore Segreteria studenti of _____ (indicate the relating faculty or the Student Office in case of interfaculty degree programmes) – Piazzale Aldo Moro, 5 – 00185 Rome, by enclosing a copy of a valid ID document.

The form is available at www.uniroma1.it in the “Student forms” section.

6.    Payments. The Student Office of the degree programme that students belong to will issue a paying-in slip of € 65 for students to pay the change fees (such fee is also due for changes among degree programmes or premises relating to the same faculty). Payment must be made within the deadline indicated on the same paying-in slip.

If students have already paid the first instalment relating to the degree programme they belong to, the Student Office will only issue the paying-in slip of € 65; if they have not paid yet the first instalment, students must submit a copy of the payment receipt of € 65 to the Student Office of the degree programme they intend to change to, according to the procedures indicated in paragraph 2. The Student Office will issue the paying-in slip to pay the first instalment for the new degree programme, that must be paid within the deadline indicated on the same paying-in slip. The paying-in slips issued by the Student Office may be also printed from Infostud thanks to the “Print again” function.

7.    Changes in the amount of tuition fees. Due to the change in the enrolment year, after the resolution concerning the educational units, Infostud is likely to generate a balance on the amount of tuition fees.

8.    Exams. As from the date of application to change degree programme, students are no longer allowed to take exams of their degree programme of origin. Once the transfer has been completed, students may take exams of the new degree programme from the first exam session of the 2019-2020 academic year, provided for first-year students (end of the first quarter/semester).

9.    Withdrawal. The applications to change a degree programme may be withdrawn within 7 days after submission. The change fees will not be refunded in case of withdrawal.

11.   Prohibition against changes to a higher cycle degree programme. Students are not allowed to change from a bachelor’s degree programme to a master’s degree programme.
