Economical situation assessment for tuition fees
The ISEE certificate (Indicatore Situazione Economica Equivalente - Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator) is the tool used to assess the economic situation of people applying for subsidised social benefits. It is reserved for students from EU and non-EU countries who belong to a family unit with a declared income in Italy. The ISEE certificate can be obtained by combining and considering three elements: income, assets and family unit.
In accordance with current legislation, the only ISEE certificate considered valid for the calculation of tuition fees and other benefits granted by the University is the ISEE University Certificate.
To obtain the ISEE certificate for study purposes (ISEE-University), students must complete the form 'Dichiarazione sostitutiva unica (DSU) integrale'.
The DSU contains information about the family and its members, as well as the assets and income of each family member. It must be filled in and submitted to the following offices:
- Centri di Assistenza Fiscale (CAF);
- INPS, also online via the INPS portal.
Once the DSU has been completed and submitted, students must wait an average of ten working days to receive their ISEE University Certificate.
As a lot of information about property, assets and income has to be collected to complete the DSU, the process can be time consuming. Students should submit their DSU as soon as possible to the CAF office, which will issue the ISEE-University Certificate.
Once either INPS or CAF has issued the ISEE-University Certificate, students must check on their Delphi page that the uploaded document is correct and check the amount to be paid in the second instalment.
If there are any errors, students must report them to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The university is not authorised to provide a direct DSU service.
