Art. 33 - TERM TO ACHIEVE THE DEGREE

 

1.    Time expected to achieve the degree. Full-time students enrolled according to Ministerial Decrees no. 270/04 or 509/99 must pass all the exams within a term equal to three times the standard duration of the degree programme, unless otherwise provided for by the Faculty’s Educational regulations.

Example: a student enrolled in a bachelor’s degree programme must pass all exams within 9 years; a student enrolled in a master’s degree programme must pass all exams within 6 years.

Such terms do not take into account any possible years of interruption of the academic career, permitted pursuant to art. 45 that follows.

2.    The terms specified for the achievement of the degree will be discontinued:

a)    in case of change of degree programmes;

b)    if students have to sit the final exam only. In this case, they cannot at all events apply for part-time learning, as per art. 50.

3.    Assessment of curriculum. Once the term to achieve the degree has elapsed, the acquired ECTS might no longer be suitable for the qualification required by the degree programme. Students must therefore submit an application on stamped paper to request the assessment of their curriculum within the enrolment deadlines in the following years:

-      to the front desk of the Student Office during opening hours;

-      by means of registered letter with return receipt addressed to Università di Roma “La Sapienza” – Area Servizi agli Studenti – Settore Segreteria studenti of (please indicate the competent faculty or of the Student Office if it is interuniversity) – Piazzale Aldo Moro, 5 – 00185 Rome, by attaching a copy of a valid identity ID document.

After proper verification, the Programme Area Council establishes new learning requirements, if any, to achieve the degree.

4.    Change to part-time learning before the term to achieve the degree. Students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes in the 2011-2012 academic year and in master’s degree programmes in the 2014-2015 academic year who have not achieved yet the degree or who withdrew from studies, will conclude the term provided for the achievement of the degree at the end of the 2020-2021 academic year. Such students – already from the third irregular year – pay tuition fees increased by 50%. To avoid paying the 50% increase, such students may apply to change to part-time learning in the 2019-2020 academic year by complying with the procedures and deadlines provided for by art. 50. Once the term to achieve the degree has elapsed, students cannot apply for part-time learning any longer.

5.   Change of academic system. Students enrolled according to the old academic system pursuant to former Ministerial Decree no. 509/99 may apply to change into the academic system pursuant to former Ministerial Decree no. 270/04 according to the procedures set forth in art. 38, provided that – for restricted access degree programmes – they have acquired at least 40 ECTS to enrol in the second year of bachelor’s degree programmes and at least 200 ECTS (180+20) to enrol in the second year of master’s degree programmes, subject to achievement of the bachelor’s degree.

The change to degree programmes pursuant to Ministerial Decree no. 270/04 and the relating ECTS recognition are made according to special conversion tables prepared by the Faculty.

6.    Students coming from other universities. Irregular students coming from other universities who exceeded the standard term established by the university of origin to achieve the degree may exclusively enrol in Sapienza University degree programmes belonging to the academic system pursuant to former Ministerial Decree no. 270/04, provided that the Faculty deems their curriculum as compatible.

They must:

a)    register on Infostud and obtain the student ID number;

b)    abide by the access procedures provided for the degree programme of choice;

c)    submit an application on stamped paper:

-      to the front desk of the Student Office during opening hours;

-      by means of registered letter with return receipt addressed to the University of Rome “La Sapienza” – Area Servizi agli Studenti – Settore Segreteria studenti of (please indicate the competent faculty or of the Student Office if it is interuniversity) – Piazzale Aldo Moro, 5 – 00185 Rome, by attaching a copy of a valid ID document, a self-certification of the exams passed, of the relating scientific disciplinary sectors and of the ECTS acquired;

d)    pay by means of the paying-in slip issued by the Student Office within the enrolment deadlines provided for each degree programme:

-      a fixed-amount fee of € 2,255;

-      the first instalment of the tuition fees for the 2019-2020 academic year;

-      the regional tax for the right to education for the 2019-2020 academic year;

Students having a disability equal or higher than 66% or a recognised disability pursuant to art. 3, paragraph 1, of law of February 5, 1992, no. 104 pay a fixed amount fee of € 30 each year and the stamp duty.
