DSU Regional Tax for A.Y. 2020/2021


For the A.Y. 2020/2021, the amount due for D.S.U Regional Tax is Euro 172.00.

With Regional Law No. 15 of 28.06.2013, the Veneto Region has provided for new regulations regarding the amount of the Regional Tax, divided into 3 bands linked to the student's ability to contribute.

To take advantage of a reduction in the tax, students must self-certify their financial position by filling in the SELF-CERTIFICATION form (to be sent, together with .pdf of a valid identification document) by initiating a "Ticket" in the appropriate area of the portal  - as a rule, by 30 November 2020 -  by means of which reimbursement of the greater amount paid can also be requested.

Pursuant to Article 3, paragraphs 20 and 23 of Law No. 549 of 28.12.1995, the payment of the Regional Tax for the right to university study is compulsory for enrolment in university study courses.

Only students at Conservatoires, who are also enrolled at Veneto Region universities for the A.Y. 2020/2021, are exempt from paying the Regional Tax.

N.B. Payment of the Regional Tax is to be made exclusively by

accessing the PagoPa - MyPay portal

where students, in Altre Tipologie di pagamento (Other Types of payment), must select Tassa  Regionale DSU, then > Procedi (further information  here)

Next, choose a Bank/Istituto di Credito: choose the one that applies the lower fee (your own bank may not be on the list).
