Petitioning for Extension
A student wishing to extend his/her registration beyond the original three years terminal date must file a Petition for an Extension to the Graduate School Board (and then to the offices). A dissertation Progress Report must also be completed along with a letter to the Graduate School Board stating the reasons for needing an extension. The extension can be requested only once and for 6 months or 1 year. Note that the extension is not covered by the Graduate Study Grant.
According to recent ministerial rules on graduate studies, (issued on 08/02/2013), starting from the XXIX cycle (A.A. 2013/2014) it is no longer possible to ask for an extension. Graduate students of the previous cycles (i.e. up to the XXVIII cycle) can still ask for an extensionof their registration beyond the original three years terminal date. This clearly generates a Disparity of treatment in our workplace. Inquiries have been sent to the competent authorities to make a pronouncement on this discrimination among graduate students.
Graduate students wishing to attend meetings, conferences, etc. must ask permission to the Graduate School Board, (forms are available from the Graduate Registrar Mrs. Anna Rita Mangia). There are very important considerations against traveling for official reasons without asking permission to the School. Typically it may imply a failure in coverage for health and hospitalization insurance.
Under certain circumstances, besides the graduate scholarship, extra-mural money may be available to graduate students. The sources of this extra financing inevitably may vary case by case, and it may be subjected to both administrative and academic constraints. According to the Rules and Regulation of the University of Pavia, the basic administrative constraint is that the gross extra-mural salary should not exceed the salary associated with the graduate scholarship (for students winner of a graduate scholarship), or twice the graduate scholarship salary (for students without a graduate scholarship grant). The students should inquire with the Coordinator of Graduate Studies (and the offices) to make certain they are complying with these constraints, and in any case they must ask permission to the Graduate School Board.
Leave of absence
Students who need to interrupt their study temporarily may request a leave of absence. There are two types of leave, personal and medical. Students facing any type of personal or health difficulties are strongly encouraged to consult with the Coordinator of Graduate Studies.
