If you are enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree programme, you incur into automatic forfeiture in the following cases:        

a) if, within two years,  you fail to pass first-year compulsory exams which are required for admission to second year. In this case you are considered to have forfeited and cannot continue your studies in the same academic career. If you intend to resume your studies and enrol in another Bachelor’s degree programme, you must sit and pass the admissions test and conveniently place yourself in the ranking list.  

b) if they fail to pass any exam for three consecutive years, or they do not complete all the exams (excluding the Final Examination) in six years. In this case they are considered to have forfeited and cannot continue their studies in the same academic career. As a  forfeited student, you  are allowed to enrol again in the same Bachelor’s degree programme (if this is still offered) without having to sit the admissions test.    

The years of part-time enrolment count as 0.5 / year.  

An instance to the Rector for deferment of the terms of forfeiture is permitted in the event of serious and certifiable reasons.  

When forfeited students begin a new academic career, they may apply for the recognition of the credits earned during the degree programme from which they have forfeited.       

The forfeiture rules provided for by article 12 of the Student Regulations are applicable to students enrolled at Politecnico starting from the 2016/2017 academic year. These forfeiture rules are also applicable to students enrolled at Politecnico before the 2016/2017 a.y., but in this case the number of years of enrolment is calculated starting from the 2016/2017 a.y., instead of the actual enrolment date.
