Disability and SLD

During the last year of secondary school, you should contact our Disability and Dyslexia Services Office, which can give you all the information you need to successfully enrol at university. It is also possible to be supported in choosing a course of study through individual orientation interviews.

Please also note that the Disability and Dyslexia Services Office have a dedicated desk during the Open Days which are held periodically at every campus ofUniversità Cattolica. However, for further information, check the events and activities proposed by our Orientation and Tutoring Office with whom the Disability and Dyslexia Services Office works in synergy.

  • If you wish to receive information before enrolling in order to better understand what it means to study at our University, we recommend that you send your document (see Recipients) and your intentions regarding which degree programme you are interested in by e-mail to the Secretariat, leaving a telephone contact (recommended period: January-July of the year of enrolment).
  • If you intend to take admission tests for degree programmes/specialising masters/state examinations, you are advised to read the published announcements of reference carefully to find out the deadlines and how to report your situation to the Integration Services.
  • Students who are due to enrol and who are eligible for fee waivers are advised to contact the Secretariat of the relevant campus at the time of choosing the payment option, to reserve their place.
  • If you are already pre-registered or enrolled, please contact the Secretariat for information on access to pedagogical advice (recommended period: at least two months before the exams for which you intend to request compensatory measures).
  • If you have a temporary disability (e.g. fractured wrist, etc.) and need information on accessibility and/or compensatory measures for examinations, it is advisable to send the Secretariat a document on your situation and any needs by e-mail, leaving a contact telephone number.
  • To contact the Secretariats, please see the Contacts page.

Since 2006, the Rector's Delegates for Disability of Lombardy Universities have started a coordination activity, which was formalised with an agreement in 2011: the CALD (Coordinamento degli Atenei Lombardi per la disabilità e i DSA) (https://www.cald.it/).
