1.    Time allowed for obtaining the degree. Students enrolled full-time on programmes under the Ministerial Decree 270/04 or Ministerial Decree 509/99, must pass all the exams within a time limit equal to three times the regular duration of the degree programme unless otherwise established by the Programme Regulations.

Example: students enrolled in a bachelor's degree programme must pass all their exams within a total of 9 years; students enrolled in a master's degree programme within a total of 6 years.

To calculate the deadline for obtaining the degree, no account is taken of any years of career interruptions granted pursuant to Art. 45 below.

2.    The deadlines set for obtaining the degree are interrupted:

a) in the event of a change to another degree programme;

b) in the event of failing only the final degree exam. In this case, however, it is not possible to apply for part-time learning as per Art. 50.

3.    Assessment of the study plan. Once the deadline for obtaining the qualification has expired, the ECTS acquired may no longer be deemed adequate for the qualification required by the degree programme attended. In this case, it is necessary to submit - within the deadlines for enrolment in subsequent years - a stamped application to assess the study plan.

The application must be submitted using the "Application" form available on the University website on the Student Forms page. Before submitting the application, it is necessary to check on Infostud that a valid identity document has been uploaded (section "Profile>Personal documents").

The Educational Board shall, after appropriate checks, determine any new educational requirements for the degree.

4.    Transition to part-time learning before the deadline to obtain the qualification. Students who enrolled in the academic year 2015-2016 in a bachelor's degree, and those who enrolled in the academic year 2018-2019 in master's degree programmes and have not yet obtained their degree or have withdrawn from their studies, will end their study period at the end of the academic year 2023-2024: these students - as from the third year fuoricorso - will pay tuition fees with a 50% increase. In order not to continue paying the surcharge, such students may apply to switch to part-time learning status for the 2023-2024 academic year by following the deadlines and procedures indicated in Article 50. After the deadline for obtaining the degree, it is no longer possible to request a switch to part-time learning.

5.    Change of academic system. For those enrolled in degree programmes pursuant to Ministerial Decree 509/99, it is also possible to request a change of academic system to degree programmes pursuant to Ministerial Decree 270/04, in accordance with the procedures set out in Article 38, provided that - for restricted access degree programmes - students have achieved at least 40 ECTS for enrolment in the second year of bachelor's degrees and at least 200 ECTS (180+20) for enrolment in the second year of master's degrees, after having obtained a bachelor's degree.

Transition to Ministerial Decree 270/04 degree programmes and the relative recognition of ECTS is carried out on the basis of special conversion tables prepared by the Faculties.

6.    Fuoricorso students from other Italian universities. Students enrolled fuoricorso at other Italian universities, and who have exceeded the limit set by their university of origin for the award of their degree, may apply for enrolment at Sapienza University of Rome, with recognition of their previous study plan, exclusively on degree programmes under the Ministerial Decree 270/04, provided that the Faculty considers the study plan followed to be compatible.

They must:

a) register on Infostud, obtain their student ID number and upload their identity document in the "Profile>Personal documents" section;

b) comply with the access procedures laid down for the chosen programme;

c) submit an application with stamp duty. The application must be submitted using the "Application" form available on the university website on the Student Forms page, attaching a self-certification of the exams taken, the relative Scientific-Disciplinary Sectors (Ssd) and ECTS;

d) pay, within the enrolment deadlines set for each degree programme

- a fixed fee of €2,255

- the first instalment of tuition fees for the academic year 2023-2024;

- the regional fee for the right to education for the academic year 2023-2024.

Students with disabilities equal to or greater than 66% or with a disability certificate pursuant to Article 3, paragraph 1 of Law no. 104 of February 5, 1992, pay a fixed fee of €30 for each year and a stamp duty.

The amounts will be produced by the Student Affairs Office on Infostud.
