Graduation dates and corresponding deadlines for AA.YY. 2018/19 and 2019/2020

Administrative procedures to follow for graduating, with deadlines

Extension of the exam session and final examination deadline to
15 June 2020


Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the exam session and final examination deadline
for the 2018/19 a.y. has been extended to 15 June 2020 (Decree-Law No. 18 of
17 March 2020).


Who is eligible for extension


If you were unable to graduate in March due to issues related to the emergency, you can
submit a graduation application for the extraordinary session, but only if you are enrolled
regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating
student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the last year of a full-length degree programme.
You are only eligible for extension if your study plan was complete and you fulfilled all
attendance requirements by the end of the a.y. 2018/19.

In detail:
• if you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree
course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the second year and, by the end of
the academic year, you included in your study plan all the learning activities planned in
your degree programme in order to take the exams and graduate;


Who is not eligible for extension

You are not eligible for extension if:

  •  you failed to meet attendance requirements by the end of the a.y. 2018/19
  • you made changes to your study plan in the a.y. 2019/20 and took exams related to that study
    plan;
  •  you did not have a complete study plan, so in the a.y. 2019/20 you had to make changes to
    include exams:
  • you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the second year, and in the a.y. 2019/20 you made changes to your study plan to include exams because in your study plan you did not have the 120 university educational credits you needed to graduate;
    - for Single cycle degrees: you are enrolled regularly, “fuori corso” (past envisaged completion
    time for the degree course) or as a repeating student in the a.y. 2018/19 in the fifth or sixth year
    (in the five-year or six-year degree programme respectively), and in the a.y. 2019/20 you made
    changes to your study plan to include exams because in your study plan you did not have the
    university educational credits you needed to graduate.

Please note: this is not an early session of the a.y. 2019/20. If you are enrolled in the a.y.
2019/20 in the last year of a full-length degree programme, you are not eligible for extension.
You are also not eligible for extension if you had enrolled regularly in the a.y. 2018/19 in the last
year of a full-length degree programme and are now enrolled in the a.y. 2019/20 as a repeating
student.


What to do if you are eligible for extension

If you are eligible for extension, from 31 March you must go on Studenti Online and select the
extraordinary session.

The dates of the session for most degree programmes are the following:


Deadline for application: 10 April, late enrolment to the session not permitted
• Admission requirements deadline: 22 April
• Deadline for uploading the paper: 11 May
• Deadline for supervisor’s approval of the paper: 18 May
• The graduation session will be held on 28 and 29 May

In Italy students "apply" to graduate in a certain Appello di laurea (graduation session). There are three sessions per year, and students choose one. After submitting a dissertation, they defend it in front of a graduation panel (and usually of family and friends) and obtain the title on the same day.

They are eligible to graduate once they have acquired all the credits required by their study plan, apart from those for the final examination (15 ECTS credits).

This page explains the procedures involved. For any doubts, please do not hesitate to contact the Teaching Office.
