Graduating in Political, Economical and Social Sciences

To be awarded a bachelor's or master's degree students may sit the final exam on set dates distributed in three sessions and four rounds minimum each year:

  • first session: from May to July
  • second session: from September to December
  • third session: from February to April

Students who graduate by the third session of academic year need not pay the first instalment for next academic year.

To be admitted to the final exam, students must apply online for graduation, respecting session deadlines, from UNIMIA - SIFA Online Services – Administrative services – Apply for graduation

The Graduation fee amounts to 116 Euros (including a 16 Euro revenue stamp) to be paid through one of the following procedures:

  • by credit card during the online enrolment procedure
  • in a bank or at the Post Office using the MAV (notice of payment) form printed at the end of the online enrolment procedure, accessible through Unimia (online services, Registrar services, payments) by the deadline indicated on the form, or the candidate will not be allowed to sit the exam.

Students must fill in the graduand questionnaire by the deadlines established for each exam session or they will not be allowed to sit the exam, as established by the Academic Senate (resolution of 16 September 2008).

The survey may be accessed only once the application for graduation has been submitted.

    Each application is valid for a single exam session.

    Students who forfeit an exam must promptly notify the Registrar through Informastudenti. Students must submit another application through the online procedure, indicating the newly chosen exam session.

    Once paid, the graduation fee is valid for the new session also. Postponements are not allowed.
