1. Time expected to achieve the degree. Full-time students enrolled according to the academic systems pursuant 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 Faculties’ Programme 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 established 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 study plan. Once the term to achieve the degree has elapsed, the acquired ECTS might no longer be deemed as suitable for the qualification required by the degree programme. Students must therefore submit an application on stamped paper to request the assessment of their study plan within the deadlines for enrolment in the subsequent years.
Such application must be submitted from the students’ institutional email account to the email address of the reference Student Affairs Office, by using the “Domanda” form, available at www.uniroma1.it in the “Student Forms” section. Before submitting the application, students must check whether their valid identity document has been correctly uploaded on Infostud in the Profile>Personal Documents section.
After proper verification, the Degree Programme Commission establishes new Further Required Courses, if any, to achieve the degree.
4. Change to part-time learning before the term to achieve the degree has elapsed. Students who enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes in the 2012-2013 academic year and in master’s degree programmes in the 2015-2016 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 such 50% increase, they may apply to change to part-time learning in the 2020-2021 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 academic system pursuant to Ministerial Decree no. 509/99 may apply to change into the academic system pursuant to Ministerial Decree no. 270/04 according to the procedures set forth in art. 38, provided that – in case of degree programmes with restricted access – 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 Faculties.
6. Students coming from other Italian universities. Irregular students coming from other Italian universities who exceeded the standard term established by the university of origin to achieve the degree, may exclusively enrol in Sapienza degree programmes belonging to the academic system pursuant to Ministerial Decree no. 270/04, provided that the Faculty deems their study plan as compatible.
a) register on Infostud, obtain the student ID number and upload their identity document in the Profile>Personal Documents section;
b) follow the access procedures provided for the degree programme of choice;
c) submit an application on stamped paper:
- The application must be submitted from the students’ institutional email account to the email address of the Student Affairs Office, by using the “Domanda” form, available at www.uniroma1.it in the “Student Forms” section and attaching 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 Affairs Office within the enrolment deadlines provided for each degree programme:
- a fixed fee of € 2,255;
- the first instalment of the tuition fees for the 2020-2021 academic year;
- the regional tax for the right to education for the 2020-2021 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 fee of € 30 each year and the stamp duty.
