Tuition and scholarships
Tuition fees for the Bachelor's degrees amount to CHF 4,000 per semester. Applicants whose official residence was in Switzerland (including Liechtenstein) at the time of the final high school exam (Maturità) pay a reduced semester fee of CHF 2,000.
Tuition fees are payable at the beginning of each term, by the deadline indicated on the invoice; fee payment is an essential condition for matriculating or renewing one's enrolment.
Among its goals USI seeks to further encourage multiculturality among its student core, also as a stimulus for the Italian speaking students.
USI therefore assigns every year to all first year Bachelor students from the Swiss-german and Swiss-french Cantons a scholarship equivalent to the yearly tuiton fee of CHF 4'000.- (una tantum).
