Services for the Integration of Students with Disabilities and Specific Learning Disorders
In accordance with Law no. 17 dated 28 January 1999, Università Cattolica has set up an office to assistdisabled students in their social integration and their rights. These services can be used by all disabled students enrolled in degree programmes at Università Cattolica, Specialisation Schools and Specialising Masters.
The services run on a special fund set up by the University, and help students in their university experience by responding to their specific needs for educational success and the necessary technical-administrative support.
When filling in the forms, students are asked, on a voluntary basis, to make an additional contribution of € 5.00 to increase the resources of the fund aimed at supporting students with disabilities.
The University, in turn, will increase this fund by an amount at least equal to the total amount obtained through the free subscription of the students.
The voluntary contribution of € 5.00 will be added to the amount of the second instalment.
