· updated copy of your academic transcript for the current academic year, or copy of the payment receipt of your tuition fees for the current academic year or, in the case of High School students, a copy of the certificate of enrolment issued by the institution. These documents must necessarily include the applicant personal data, the University or College details and attest the academic and scholastic activity during the current calendar year.

We remind you that the request has to be accompanied by the appropriate documentation as outlined by the online procedures and must therefore be received complete in all parts by the deadline.

The Registration Office will evaluate all requests and will send a confirmation email, together with payment information.
