Disability and SLD

Those wishing to have the support of the Disability and Dyslexia Services Office must be in possession of at least one of the following valid documents:

  • "report of civil invalidity" pursuant to article 20 of Law No. 102 of 3 August 2009;
  • "report of assessment of disability" pursuant to Law No. 104 of 5 February 1992;
  • medical certification attesting to a temporary disability (e.g. broken arm);
  • certification of a Specific Learning Disorder (SLD) showing at least one of the disorders provided for by Law 170/2010 - dyslexia, dysgraphia, dysorthographia, dyscalculia - and the appropriate nosographic codes. As provided for by Law No. 170 of 2010 (art. 3) and by the subsequent State-Regions Agreement of 24/7/2012, the diagnosis must be updated after 3 years if made by the student when he or she is younger; it is not compulsory to update it if made after the student turned 18.

Exceptionally, at the sole discretion of the Assessment Committee, other health documents may be examined. The technical-administrative secretariat of the Disability and Dyslexia Services Office reserves the right to request additional documentation also in order to better guarantee personalised support.

The following services are reserved for students with disabilities

University fees

Disabled students with a certified disability equal to or greater than 66% and students with recognised disabilities pursuant to article 3, paragraph 1 or 3 of Law No. 104 of 5 February 1992 are entitled to total exemption from enrolment fees and university fees (a single payment of €100.00 is due at the time of enrolment). To obtain the exemption, documentation must be presented (valid original certification) to the Services for the integration of students with disabilities and specific learning disorders. For further details on how to obtain a discount for students with disabilities, please consult the "General regulations for determining university fees" in force. In particular, if you are entitled to exemption, during the enrolment process when choosing the payment of the first instalment for the post reservation, please contact the secretary of the Disability and Dyslexia Services Office of your campus.

Renewal of enrolment

For years following the first year, when the first instalment of university fees is paid, enrolment is renewed after the 4-5 working days required to verify payment. It is therefore advisable to avoid paying close to the deadlines. The PagoPA slip is available on your personal iCatt page from mid-July (Online Secretariat - contributions and subsidies section). For further information, please follow this link.


For students entitled to exemption from university fees, there is a special contribution regime for graduation requirements. For clarification and support at this stage or to request special certificates, please contact the Secretariat of the Disability and Dyslexia Services Office of yourcampus.
