Tuition and scholarships

Tuition fees amount to CHF 4'000.- per semester. For students whose official residence was in Switzerland or Liechtenstein at the time of the final high school exam (Maturità), the fees are CHF 2'000.-. The semester's fees of CHF 2'000.- are also applied to students whose official residence is Campione d'Italia under certain conditions.
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).
