Exemptions envisaged by the 2017 Balance Law (as subsequently amended and supplemented)

Academic Year 2021/2022

The 2017 Balance Law (Italian Law 232/2016), as subsequently amended and supplemented, requires students who meet certain conditions to be fully or partially exempted from paying the all-inclusive contribution. The entitlement to the exemption depends on a series of requirements which vary depending on the student’s year of enrolment.

Note: with the EQUIVALENT ISEE indicator it is not possible to request the exemption on the basis of Law 232/2016 as subsequently amended and supplemented.

3. Calculation of all-inclusive contribution amount for study plans from 46 to 74 ECTS

The total of the all-inclusive contribution, 100% of which is due, for Study Plans from 46 to 74 ECTS, is determined in accordance with what is established by the 2017 Budget Law (Italian Law 232/2016) – as subsequently amended and supplemented – and by the resolution of the Board of Governors of 28.09.2021 that has approved further increase of the reductions provided by the MIUR decree 1014/2021

The annual all-inclusive contribution due will be calculated as indicated in the following tables:

Partial exemption

Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) value

All-inclusive amount

From €22,001 to €24,000

(ISEE - 22,000) / 12.9870

From 24,001 € to 26,000 €

(ISEE - 24,000) / 6.6445 + 154

From 26,001 € to 30,000 €

(ISEE - 26,000) / 6.4935 + 455

Examples:

  • ISEE of 23,000: (23,000 - 22,000) / 12.9870 = 77 €
  • ISEE of 25,700: (25,700 - 24,000) / 6.6445 + 154 = 409 €
  • ISEE of 28,900: (28,900 - 26,000) / 6,4935 + 455 = 901 €

Reduced partial exemption

Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) value

All-inclusive amount

From €0 to €23,731

200 €

(minimum amount envisaged by Law 232/2016 and M.D. 234/2020)

From € 23,732 to € 30,000

[(ISEE - 26,000) / 6.4935 + 455)*1.5 (maximum amount envisaged: 1,474 €)

If the total is less than or equal to €723, only the advance contribution in the 1st instalment is due and there is no contribution balance.

If the total is more than €723, a contribution advance of €723 in the 1st instalment is due and the surplus part will be requested with the contribution balance in the 2nd instalment.


4. EQUIVALENT ECONOMIC SITUATION INDICATOR (ISEE) ISSUED IN 2021 AND EQUIVALENT ECONOMIC SITUATION INDICATOR (ISEE) ISSUED IN 2022

Students who meet the requirements illustrated above are entitled to obtain a reduction as early as the 1st instalment of the tuition fees only if their Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) is less than €23,328 (otherwise, the reduction is applied on the 2nd instalment). The reduction is determined based upon the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) declaration issued in 2021.  

  • For students already enrolled at Politecnico di Milano, the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) issued in 2021, already submitted for the 2020/2021 academic year, is considered.
  • Students enrolling for the first time at Politecnico di Milano must, on the other hand, enter, via Online Services, the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) declaration of 2021 by the set deadlines; otherwise they will be required to pay the 1st instalment in full. 

The reduction on the 1st instalment determined provisionally with the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) issued in 2021 must be confirmed later with the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) issued in 2022, based upon which the following circumstances may occur: 

  • granting of the full exemption, triggering a refund of the 1st instalment
  • granting of a partial exemption, triggering the payment of a refund and/or the balance, if due
  • allocation of the income bracket and request for any balance due 

Students who meet the legal requirements and have not submitted the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) issued in 2021 may submit an application for exemption with the Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator (ISEE) issued in 2022.
