Tuition Fees and Grants

News and Benefits - Academic Year 2020-21

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 - as provided for by the recent Ministerial Decree 234 of 26 June 2020 - a complete exemption will be granted to those who have a Personal Financial Standing - Isee for the right to university study up to 20,000 euros; reductions are also envisaged for those who have an Isee up to 30,000 euros.

For Academic Year 2020-21 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;
  • increase in the percentage of students who benefit from the exam bonus.
The amounts of enrolment contributions at the maximum value are unchanged compared to previous years.

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).

The documentation must be translated in 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.

Tax relief on tuition fees: only through traceable payments

From January 1st, 2020 (in compliance with December 27, 2019, Sapienza new budget law) students are required to pay the tuition fees through traceable means. This procedure is also necessary to request tax relief on the above-mentioned tuition fees. Therefore students cannot request tax relief on the tuition fees if paid in cash at the office.
