There are several payment methods:
1) Credit cards (Visa and
MasterCard only – American Express is not accepted): if you pay by credit card,
your payment is immediate and you will be charged a bank commission. At the end
of the operation, you can get a paper receipt with the payment details.
2) Modulo Avviso Pagamento – MAV
(electronic deposit slip)
This method generates a deferred payment.
If you want
to pay by MAV, follow these steps:
- Log into your Apply page and select the day and time
when you want to take the test
- Select the MAV payment method
- Print the slip containing the MAV code that you need to
use for the payment
- Pay at any bank counter or through the online banking
- After you have paid, go back to the page where you
downloaded the slip containing the MAV code and insert the date of payment “Confirm” the operation
You can pay your MAV at any bank counter or through
the on-line banking service of your own bank. If you wish to pay at a bank
counter, you shall print your MAV and show it at the bank counter. If you pay
through the on-line banking service of your bank, you must use the code
generated by the system, without having to print the MAV. The MAV is a univocal
code and can be used only for the credit amount generated at the moment. The
MAV will be valid until the payment is made. A bank commission is applied for
any MAV transaction. The payment will be automatically recorded within five
days from the date of payment (after the bank has sent the data to Politecnico).
note that if you pay your MAV after 5.00 p.m., the bank might not record the
payment within the same day (you shall verify with your bank their recording
schedule). This could be a problem if the payment is made on the last date of
ATTENTION: the use of the deferred payment method (for instance, a preprinted notice of
payment) is valid solely and exclusively if it is supported by a self-declaration of the payment date which
certifies that the payment was made before the deadline. The self-certification
must be submitted within the same deadline. If your self-certification is found
to be false or incorrect, or if the bank does not confirm your payment within 5
days, the registration for the test - or
the test itself - will be cancelled
