Tax Code is an alphanumerical code which in Italy is used to carry out several administrative procedures, such as opening a bank account, purchasing a telephone card or a transport card and, last but not least, obtaining Politecnico di Milano PoliCard. For this reason, it is necessary to obtain it as soon as possible!

Obtain the tax code from the italian representative abroad

You can refer to the Italian Representative in your country in order to have your Tax Code. Once you have it, type it in your OnLine Services (“MyData” section) and upload the certificate of attribution.

Tax Code generated on Universitaly website is not official. Please, do not update your OnLine Services with it.

Obtain the tax code with politecnico di milano support

Politecnico di Milano can ask the Agenzia delle Entrate (Revenue Agency) for its students’ Tax Code.

In order to obtain it by the end of July it is necessary to pay the Administrative Fee and upload the passport (or Identity Card for EU students only) by May 31st.

The request is automatically sent, and no further actions are required from the students. Once the Tax Code is available, usually in a few weeks, the students are notified by e-mail.

In order to complete the procedures related to the enrolment you need to submit the original documents listed below. In case of missing documentation, in accordance with the existing rules, Politecnico di Milano will revoke the enrolment.

Please find below the required documents, valid for all students:

  1. Laurea (equivalent to Bachelor) diploma or a graduation certificate issued by a competent office (*)
  2. One of the following documents:

    • CIMEA Statement of Comparability
    • Diploma Supplement if issued by your university (*)
    • Declaration of value (Dichiarazione di Valore) issued by the competent Italian Diplomatic Representative, related to the Bachelor degree. This document attests the validity and eligibility of your degree to pursue your studies in the second cycle

    The Bachelor degree/graduation certificate must be verifiable online through one of the following documents:

    • CIMEA Statement of Verification
    • electronic Apostille (paper Apostille is no longer accepted). Please check this link for the list of competent authorities for the issuance of the Apostille in each Country and make sure the e-Apostille is available
    • online database provided by the institution issuing the degree. The link to the database and consultation modalities must be provided by the institution itself
  3. D type Student visa for Italy (non-EU students residing abroad only). Student visa must be obtained before the beginning of classes (mid-September)
  4. Original certificate of English language (and Italian language, for students admitted to MSc programmes held in Italian language). For students whose previous Bachelor's degree was taught in English, unless clearly specified on the Diploma supplement, an official ORIGINAL letter from Institution is required.
    You can check this page (section LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY) for all the details about the language certificates accepted.

(*) Unless bachelor degree or diploma supplement are not issued by the university directly in English, French or Spanish, a translation made by a sworn translator is mandatory. Politecnico di Milano accepts translations in Italian (preferably), English, French or Spanish.

Please note: translations obtained from translators or Tribunals in Italy will not be accepted.

Declaration of value, when necessary, must be obtained by the competent Italian Representatives your University system belongs to (e.g.: for a university with British educational system in Peruvian territory the authorities of reference are those of the UK).


For all details regarding CIMEA Statement of Verification and Statement of Comparability, please check their website.

In order to enrol at Politecnico di Milano, Non-EEA citizens residing abroad need to apply for a Study visa issued by the Italian Diplomatic representatives in the country of residence.

Students who intend to withdraw (or have lost their student status) from their current academic career in an Italian university in order to activate a new one at Politecnico di Milano must apply for a new visa, as the residence permit for study purposes loses its validity in case of withdrawal.

As a consequence, students currently attending a Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) program in an Italian university, having a foreign bachelor degree, who intend to move to another Laurea Magistrale (equivalent to Master of Science) program at Politecnico di Milano, must apply for a transfer from their current university. Please note that transfer is allowed at the beginning of the first semester only.
