Grants and Benefits - Academic Year 2021-22

Sapienza supports families and meritorious students with grants and tuition fee exemptions. We are aware that the consequences of the Covid-19 emergency have significantly changed the contributive capacity of many families: for this reason, on July 21, 2020, the Board of Directors of Sapienza extended the no-tax area provided for by DM 234/2020 to students with a "Personal Financial Standing - Isee for the right to university study 2020" up to 24,000 euros (the threshold established by DM 234/2020 is 20,000 euros). Merit requirements necessary as provided by Law 232/2016.

The same resolution also provides: 

  • additional benefits for students enrolling from their second "fuori corso" year ( students who have not completed their exams within a set period);
  • the payment of a fixed fee of 30 euros per year in place of the enrolment fees for 18+ students living outside their family of origin on the basis of a court order (so-called care leavers).

For Academic Year 2021-22 benefits and bonuses are confirmed, including :

  • family Bonus – reductions for all family members enrolled at Sapienza (until last year, the reductions were limited to brothers and sisters);
  • changing Programme – changing programme is free during the year of enrolment if no exams have been taken.
  • full exemption for students with disabilities over 66%;
  • payment of the fixed fee of 30 euros per year instead of the enrolment fees for students who are covered by the facilities provided for in art. 30 of Law no. 118 of 30 March 1971;

The amounts of enrolment contributions at the maximum value are unchanged compared to previous years.

All the details are available in the "Regulations for Student" concerning enrolment fees.

Tuition Fees depend on Personal Financial Standing (ISEE)

For students who do not qualify for total exemptions, Sapienza applies a model that allows each student to determine the amount of their own fee - compared to the ordinary measure - in accordance with their financial standing - ISEE for the right to university study (Board of Directors' Resolution of June 11, 2013).

Fees for students with foreign citizenship and/or foreign income

Students with foreign citizenship can pay enrolment fees in the following ways:

  1. according to the fixed fee provided for developing countries or non-developing countries (see list below). In this case it will be sufficient to print the slip from Infostud without performing any further functions and the amount shown will be automatically determined according to the country of the declared citizenship
  2. according to your “Isee per il diritto allo studio universitario” (Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator). This option is possible if the income and assets are produced in Italy. In this case, the Isee must be calculated at a Caf (tax assistance centre) or filled in on the Inps website and can be acquired exclusively on Infostud from the Profile>Isee section (it is not possible to acquire the Isee at the time of printing the payment slip). Those who do not have the Isee available at the time of printing the slip must always click on Acquire Isee to pay a fixed fee. By December 22, 2021, the Isee must be declared, otherwise, the amount of the contributions will be applied to the maximum value established.
  3. As per Bill 159/2013, Art. 8, international students may also request an “Isee Parificato” Declaration from a CAF by presenting the required documentation that has previously been certified by the competent authorities in the country where the income was earned. The documentation must be translated into Italian by the Italian embassy or consulate in the country where the income was earned. The declaration must include the number of family members, income and all other sources of revenue for the given year. The CAF declaration must be then submitted to the programme administrative office at Sapienza for tuition fee calculation.

Regional taxes and tax stamps must be added to the totals and included in the first instalment.

International students (EU and Non-EU) are included in the following categories:

  • University student with foreign citizenship not residing in Italy;
