How can I find out if the registration for the admission test has been successful?
The registration procedure for the admission test has been completed successfully when the status of the application is "Waiting for admission test" and the University has ascertained that the registration fee for the test has been paid.
How do I check that the payment of the admission fee has been successful?
We will send you a confirmation email when the payment has been verified. If the payment is not confirmed, we will contact you in the days preceding the test. Please note that you cannot take the test without payment.
Why does the documentation I have uploaded appear as "Under evaluation"? Am I still registered to the test?
It is normal that the documents you have uploaded are "Under evaluation" because only the documents that are useful for verifying that you meet the requirements for taking the test or for calculating your marks (e.g. school reports and certificates) are validated before the test. The remaining documents (passport photo, identity document, etc.) may also be evaluated after the place has been reserved. Note, however, that if the documentation is 'Invalid' it must be corrected. If the status of your application is 'Waiting for admission test' and you have paid the registration fee for the test, you are still registered for the admission test.
The documentation I uploaded is "Invalid”. Am I enrolled in the test?
English language certification (for English language courses): language requirement is mandatory, you cannot participate in the test.
As an alternative to language certification, you can take the “English Test” on one of the available dates by the test registration deadline.

I have taken the VPI test, and at the end the message "Test not passed" appears, what should I do?
The outcome "failed test" indicates that the minimum threshold required for passing the test has not been reached. One or more OFAs will be assigned depending on the subject areas for which the minimum threshold has not been reached.
I have taken the VPI but on my iCatt page I see the result "NOT TAKEN”, what does this mean?
The VPI was taken but the result was negative, therefore one or more OFAs (Additional Training Obligations) will be assigned to you.
Is it possible to view the test I took?
You can view the test only in case of negative result. To book an appointment you can write to us from your iCatt page using the Information Request form, selecting the topic Admissions and enrolment, VPI and OFA.
What is the Additional Training Obligation (OFA)?
If you are absent from the test or do not pass it, you will automatically be assigned additional courses called OFAs (Additional Training Obligations).
You can view any OFAs you have been assigned in the "Blackboard courses" section of your iCatt page.
I do not see any OFA courses on iCatt. What can I do?
OFA calendars are not yet available. Course assignments will soon be visible in the "My appointments" section of your personal iCatt page and on the blackboard platform.
I have been assigned OFA(s), but iCatt shows that the course is not active. What should I do?
Go to your personal iCatt page and click on "Blackboard courses", or "Courses">"Bb courses". Once you have followed the procedure, you will be able to view all the necessary information.
If there are no active OFA sessions available, the system will update the page with the new dates.
I forgot to register for the OFA final exam, am I still in time?
The professor/lecturer of reference may authorise enrolment in the OFA final examination if course attendance is equal to or higher than 70%.
I have received notification that my mark for the OFA examination has been recorded, but I cannot find my mark. Who can I contact?
The assessment and recording of the final examination is the direct responsibility of the OFA course professor/lecturer. In any case, you will not be awarded a marK, but in the event of a positive result, an APPROVATO (pass) grade. Please contact the professor/lecturer by e-mail.
