Instructions to complete the matriculation procedure

Once you have completed your application for matriculation and paid the tuition fees, you will find further information on Studenti Online on how to validate your digital identity, activate your career and obtain your badge.

The instructions you may receive, according to your profile, are given below.

Digital identity

What does it mean?

Validating your digital identity means associating your name.surname@studio.unibo.it account with the information you provided during the matriculation process.

What do I need to do?

Your digital identity will be automatically validated, without you having to do anything, if one of the following cases applies:

  • if you hold SPID credentials and have used them to access Studenti Online at least once;
  • if you matriculated at the University of Bologna and were enrolled in a degree programme after 2004;
  • if you took a written or oral exam, also remotely, at the University of Bologna (not including TOLC tests and national competitive exams).

If none of the cases above apply to you, from September 2021 you will have to book a remote identification appointment by logging into Studenti Online (in the details section of your matriculation request) and you will receive an e-mail with all the information you need to connect to a virtual space and show your identification document.

Career activation and badge

What does it mean?

By activating your career, you will be able to use services (e.g. study plan, booking exams, accessing the Wi-Fi network and online library resources) and carry out certain activities (e.g. changing course, transfering to another university, withdrawing from your studies). Once your career is activated, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to obtain your badge.


You will still be able to use the Presente app (to manage your class attendance) and follow classes remotely even if your career has not yet been activated.

What do I need to do?

Your career will be automatically validated, without you having to do anything, and you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to obtain your badge, except in the following cases:

  • If you are a student with a disability and have a recognised disability equal to or greater than 66%, or if you have a disability certificate pursuant to Italian Law no. 104/92: in order to be eligible for exemptions from paying tuition fees, you must e-mail the certificate attesting your condition to the Student Administration Office;
  •  if you want to request recognition of previous studies: check what you need to do; 
  • if you are a non-EU citizen with EU equivalent status and you obtained your qualification in Italy: you have to email a copy of your valid residence permit, qualifying you for EU equivalent status, to the Student Administration office (of your degree programme or Campus);

  • if you have a foreign qualification: you will need to check the detailed information, follow the instructions and upload the listed documents to Studenti Online (in the “Calls” section, select “DOCUMENT UPLOAD FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WITH FOREIGN QUALIFICATIONS”), by 28 February 2022. Upon your arrival in Italy you will need to book an appointment at the International Student Administration office in Bologna or at the Campus Student Administration office to show the originals of the listed documents;

  • if you are non-EU citizen with EU equivalent status and you have a foreign qualification: you have to upload, in addition to your study documents, a copy of your valid residence permit, qualifying you for the EU equivalent status, to Studenti Online (in the “Calls” section, select "DOCUMENT UPLOAD FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WITH FOREIGN QUALIFICATIONS");

  • if you are a non-EU citizen with residency abroad and you have a foreign qualification, you will need to check the detailed information and upload, in addition to your study documents, a copy of your entry visa for study purposes (or the “Studente” residence permit, if you have already obtained it), to Studenti Online (in the “Calls” section, select “DOCUMENT UPLOAD FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WITH FOREIGN QUALIFICATIONS”). At your appointment at the Student Administration Office, you will receive a certificate of enrolment, to be used to apply for a residence permit for study purposes (“Studente”). You must subsequently send the receipt proving that you have applied for a residence permit to the International Student Administration office in Bologna or to the Campus Student Administration office. Please note that until you send your residence permit for study purposes your enrolment is conditional, subject to the acquisition of the residence permit;

If you live abroad and cannot reach the University of Bologna due to the COVID situation, please read the information for international students abroad enrolled for A.Y 2021/22.

Bear in mind that you must always follow the Italian Government’s rules for foreigners entering the country, which include self-isolating, before going to the offices.
