Candidates who apply as mature students ('special dossier' cases) are expected to enclose a letter of motivation, a curriculum vitae, any certificates testifying training and work periods, and proof of identity.
A limit may legitimately be set to new admissions, on the one hand to guarantee that logistical capacity is not exceeded to the detriment of teaching standards, and on the other to maintain a fair proportion between students of various countries or ethnic origins.
The Lisbon convention regulates the recognition of university degrees between signatory countries and considerably simplifies the administration of admission procedures. For this reason, candidates whose previous degree studies were completed in countries outside this Convention (see list below) are invited to pay an application fee of CHF 100 accounting for the higher administrative costs of processing more complex files. If the candidate is admitted, the fee will be deducted from the amount of the tuition fee for the first semester. The administrative fee is not refundable in other cases: if admission is not granted, or if the candidate decides to withdraw or fails to matriculate.
Method of payment
The amount of the registration fee may be credited to the following account:

In order to better protect future USI students against potential fraud, we wish to draw attention to fake USI intermediary services and/or misleading advertisements on the Internet, as well as related board and accommodation/matriculation proposals.
USI has no intermediaries whatsoever in these roles.
Enrollment at USI can only occur when applications are validated by its Faculty admission officers or when submitted online - in Italian or in English - via the official website of USI. The latter offers all relevant information on admission requirements, procedures, fees and accommodation: http://www.usi.ch/en/index.
When in doubt, we strongly recommend:
Please report any fake or fraudulent advertisements to USI: firstname.lastname@example.org.
USI shall take no responsibility for damages relating to incidents of this kind, to the use of such intermediary services, and to the acceptance of such proposals.
