The contribution system to calculate tuition fees and students benefits is based on ISEE University value (“ISEE università”, i.e. the Economic Condition Indicator, referred to university).
On this page you can see what is ISEE, when and how to have it calculated.

Please note that in order to apply for a scholarship and/or accommodation, you must comply the "ISEE Università" deadlines provided by the official call of the Opera Universitaria.

ISEE: meaning and purposes

The “ISEE” is used to assess the Household Income (combined family members income and estate) , when social benefits are requested in Italy.

In the case of university students, a more specific indicator ("ISEE università") is used for assessing access to services and benefits (e.g. reduced fees calculation, fees waiver, university restaurants, campus accommodation, etc.).

The “ISEE università” value is in Euros.


ISEE for student resident in Italy: how and where


Italian citizens and financially independent foreign citizens with residence in Italy must request each year their “ISEE Università” by compiling the DSU (“Dichiarazione Sostitutiva Unica”) in one of the following ways:

  • with the help of a CAF centre (free of charge) or of a professional tax consultant
  • by the other methods indicated on the INPS website (in Italian only).

Please do not submit your ISEE certification directly to the University: UniTrento will automatically acquire your “ISEE Università” data, once your online request for financial aid has been completed.

Deadlines and Expiry Date a.y. 2021/2022

To get a reduction of your tuition fees, your "ISEE università" must be calculated by 31/12/2021 (deadline stated by "INPS").

Please note that in order to apply for a scholarship and/or accommodation, you must comply the "ISEE Università" deadlines provided by the official call of the Opera Universitaria 2021/2022.

"ISEE Università" validity for is one academic year only.

Current ISEE

A calculation of Current ISEE ("ISEE corrente") may be asked if the employee is under a permanent job contract, in case of recent and relevant variations of income or interruptions of the salary and other treatments or adverse events such as loss of the job or suspension or reduction of work time.

The calculation of Current ISEE is based on the income of the last 12 months (or 2 months, in that case the income will be multiplied by INPS - the Italian Social Security Institute - by six to put it in scale with the entire year).

A calculation of the so-called Current ISEE (ISEE corrente) may be asked by submitting the form “DSU current ISEE” in case a valid ISEE has been already issued.

 A Current ISEE has a six-month validity from the date of submission of the “DSU current ISEE”, unless variations in the employment situation or in the availability of the salary and other treatments occur. In that case, it must be updated within two months.

For the students of UniTrento, the method of calculation and update of the Current ISEE is the same as the one used for the ISEE Università. After having submitted the DSU to a CAF centre or to another financial advisor, subject to the times of elaboration of INPS (the Italian Social Security Institute), students can check their situation on their MyUnitn webspace by using the widget "ISEE Università".

How to check your ISEE University value

To get a reduction of your tuition fees, your "ISEE Università”:

  • must have been calculated within 31st December 2021
  • must show the following information “si applica alle prestazioni agevolate per il diritto allo studio universitario” for you (written in Italian on the “ISEE università”)
  • must not have Mistakes/Omissions

If your “ISEE università” does not meet those requirements you will be assigned to the maximum amount of tuition fees as long as you calculate the correct “ISEE università”.

UniTrento will acquire your “ISEE Università” value for the academic year 2021/2022 by the INPS database from June 2021.
From this date you can check if your “ISEE università” value is valid on your MyUnitn area by adding the “ISEE università per servizi UniTrento” widget (in Italian only). In order to add the widget click on the wrench icon “MyUnitn properties” on the right of the webpage and select “Add widget”.

If your “ISEE Università” certification is correct, you will see your ISEE value. In this case University of Trento will not make a new check. If you choose to apply for a new ISEE certification, please write an email to

If the widget shows that your “ISEE Università” certificate is not correct, you will not see any “ISEE università” value due to:

  • the ISEE you have calculated is not correct for the PRESTAZIONI AGEVOLATE PER IL DIRITTO ALLO STUDIO UNIVERSITARIO” for you (as written in Italian on the correct “ISEE università” certificate)
    Please check the “ISEE università” certificate: if in the paragraph after the box with the “ISEE ordinario” you find the text “si applica alle prestazioni agevolate per il diritto allo studio universitario in favore di…” (written in Italian only) and your tax code (i.e. codice fiscale) is missing, it means that your ISEE Università is not valid for UniTrento.

​Should your ISEE certification have some problems, you have to check it with the CAF centre that submitted your DSU and request for a new DSU with complete and correct data.

The date of submission of the first DSU only will be considered to the purpose of ISEE deadlines.
