Certificates, self-certifications and diploma supplement

Specialisation Schools - all the information you need to request for exam and qualification certificates quickly and easily.

In compliance with Italian Law 183/2011 (stability law 2012), certificates issued by the University of Bologna are valid and can be used only in relations between private individuals. In relations with bodies of the public administration or private managers of public services, all certificates and affidavits are replaced by self-certifications.

Certificates on-line

By accessing Studenti Online you can obtain certificates concerning your exams and qualifications.
The on-line certificates are signed digitally by the university, which guarantees their integrity and authenticity.
To access the service you must use your institutional credentials. If you don't have your credentials or have forgotten them, contact the Help Desk Studenti Online.
Consult the list of types of certificates this service can provide.
The digital stamp is a two-dimensional code, viewed as a grey ban, which contains the whole document.

You can obtain all certifications concerning your university career, if they are not already available on-line, from the Student Administration Office, by completing the form and indicating the reason for your request, and including a duty stamp if required. You can also ask for the certificates to be sent directly to your home, by sending the Student Administration office, also by fax, a written request together with a copy of your ID document.
If you wish to appoint someone to collect them for you, they must go to the desk with a (simple) written authorisation, signed by you, a photocopy of your ID document and the completed form.
You can request certificates by e-mail, but only using your institutional University of Bologna account (name.surname@studio.unibo.it) or if your request is signed with a digital signature or recognisable via the electronic ID card system.

Self-certifications online

By accessing Studenti Online you can print the pre-completed form for self-certification of the data concerning your university studies, using the on-line self-certification service.

Diploma supplement

For degree programmes under the revised system (D.M. 509/99 and D.M. 270/04), as a supplement to the diploma of every degree programme the University of Bologna issues an information report ("diploma supplement") which, using a model compliant with those adopted in other European countries, gives information on the specific curriculum followed to obtain the qualification.
The Diploma Supplement can be issued only to graduates of a degree programme under the system laid down in DM 509/99 and thereafter, as this document is not foreseen in previous programme systems.
You may request a copy from your relative Student Administration Office.
