Final examination

To graduate from a First Cycle, Second Cycle or Single Cycle Degree Program, students must pass a final examination to verify that they have achieved the learning outcomes laid down in their study program. 
The Examination Board makes an overall assessment of the candidate by considering not only the execution of the final examination but also other elements, including the study curriculum, time taken to complete the university career, and applying specific rules decided autonomously by each Department  or Degree Program.
The Board expresses its evaluation with a score out of one hundred and ten. The exam is deemed to be passed with a minimum grade of 66/110. For maximum grades (110/110), the Board may unanimously also grant honours (lode).


The dissertation
To graduate from a 2nd cycle or single cycle degree programme (Laurea Magistrale, Laurea Magistrale a ciclo unico, Laurea Specialistica) students shall produce a dissertation on a topic that is consistent with the learning outcomes of their degree program under the guidance of a supervising professor. The supervising professor will monitor and support the student's activities and ensure the suitability of the dissertation for presentation, as well as its originality, also using computer applications.

Graduation applications
To be admitted to the final examination, students must have completed all the exams or, in any case, have obtained all the learning credits laid down in their teaching regulations for activities other than the final examination, and must have regularly paid all their tuition fees, including any fines for late payments.
The Departments establish the calendar for the four sessions of graduation dates, distributed over each of the three periods in the academic year (from May to July, from October to December, from February to April), as well as any specific requirements for registering for a graduation session.
