Tuition Fees and Taxes

How they work

Student fees or contributions are the sum of the stamp tax, the regional tax and the university fee.


Bollo + regional tax, payable upon confirmation of registration: Euro 136 of which

  • stamp tax = Euro 16
  • regional tax = Euro 120 (minimum amount due, to be settled by the next instalment date based on the value ISEE-U)

N.B. If you have applied for a study grant to ALISEO Liguria you pay only 16 Euros stamp duty: access the service  Study grant of the Regional Agency for the Right to University Studies and enter the "protocol number" identifying your application, which can be found on the receipt.
In the event of renouncement of the grant or revocation by ALISEO you will have to supplement your contribution.

The 2nd and the 3rd instalment are of equal amount and correspond to the amount of the university fee graduated according to the ISEE-U, if acquired by the university.

  • Second instalment is made up of a share equal to half of the University Contribution
  • Third instalment consists of the balance of the University Fee

- To find out how the university fee is calculated, please consult the dedicated section on the Fees and Benefits page
