Furthermore, Italian, Eu and Non-Eu students whose family unit’s income is earned in Italy, willing to obtain the reduction of the yearly fees on the income basis, must submit the “Attestazione ISEE-Università” (read the below section “Attestazione ISEE-Università”). Independent Students

A student who resides with neither of his/her parents can declare himself/herself independent from his/her original household and therefore he/she may present an “Attestazione ISEE-Università” (section below) in which his or her parents are not included as part of the household.

The ISEE certificate must in any case be filled out in compliance with the relevant laws, and its legitimacy is contingent on the following two conditions being true at the date on which the DSU is made:

  1. The student has been living outside of the original family home, in a property that is not owned by a member of his/her family for at least two years at the moment of the application, and that his or her residence outside the family home is duly registered in the public records;
  2. Over the two calendar years before the submission of the application, his or her declared taxable income deriving from work as a salaried or similar employee is at least € 6.500,00 for each of the two years.

If one or both of the above-mentioned conditions are not satisfied, the student shall be deemed as part of the household comprising his/her parents and the other persons identified in the family unit. Isee Parificato (Scheda Raccolta Dati Indicatore Parificato Universitario)

What is the ISEE parificato?

Students residing outside Italy, or resident in Italy but not independent from an household resident abroad, can calculate the ISEE parificato value in order to obtain social benefits depending on the family economic situation for the academic year 2020/2021.

The University ISEE parificato is the tool that allows the assessment of the economic and financial situation of the student residing abroad or of the student residing in Italy but not independent and with an household residing abroad.


When is the ISEE parificato calculated?

A student must request an ISEE parificato:

  • if the student is independent and residing abroad: it will be necessary to calculate only the ISEE parificato with the student’s income and assets and eventually of the other family members owned abroad;
  • If the student is non-independent and residing abroad: it will be necessary to calculate exclusively the ISEE parificato by inserting, in addition to the income/assets owned by the student, the income and assets received abroad also by the household (parents as well as any other persons belonging to the family unity).
  • Non-independent student, resident in Italy and with the household residing abroad: it will be necessary to issue the ISEE parificato for the student’s income and assets and, in addition the income /assets of the family unity residing abroad.

Which documents must be presented for the calculation of the ISEE Parificato?

To obtain the ISEE parificato, students must provide certificates stating the earnings and holdings abroad (referred to two years before the year of submission) of each member of their family.

These documents need to be issued by the competent authorities in the country where the incomes are produced. They must also be officially translated by the Italian Diplomatic Authorities of that country along with the income expressed in Euros.

In those countries where obtaining such documents is difficult, the documentation may be requested at the foreign diplomatic Authorities in Italy and certified by the Prefecture in accordance with art. 33 DPR no. 445 dated 28th December 2000.


Who to contact to apply for the ISEE Parificato?

[updates soon] Attestazione ISEE-Università

The “Attestazione ISEE-Università” (Indicatore Situazione Economica Equivalente – Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator) is the instrument for assessing the economic situation of individuals who request subsidised social benefits. It is reserved for all those students (independently from the country of origin) who belong to a family unit with declared incomes in Italy. This can be obtained by combining and considering three elements: income, assets, and family.

In order to obtain the Attestazione ISEE-Università, students must fill in the form entitled “Dichiarazione sostitutiva unica(DSU) integrale” .

The DSU asks information about the family and its members and about the assets and incomes of each member of the family. It must be filled out and handed in at the following offices:

  • Centri di Assistenza Fiscale (CAF);
  • INPS, also online using the INPS portal.

Once compiled and submitted their DSU, students must wait for an average of ten working days to obtain their Attestazione ISEE-Università issued by the CAF.

Given that, in order to compile the DSU a lot of information concerning property, assets, and income must be collected, the procedure may be time-consuming. Students should submit their DSU as soon as possible to the CAF office which will provide the applicant with the final certificate “Attestazione ISEE-Università”.

The university cannot offer a direct DSU service.

Once the CAF or INPS provides the ISEE-University certification, the student must log in their personal account on the Delphi platform and authorize the University to acquire the certificate.

Should any errors come to light, the student must report them through the following email address: [email protected]. Payment Methods and Deadlines
