Standards of conduct to abide by during the graduation session

Pursuant to paragraphs 1 and 2 of Article 42 of the Student Regulations, issued with the Chancellor’s Decree No. 548 of March 26, 2012 and subsequent amendments, students enrolled in courses of study, as well as all members of the Academic Community, are required to comply with the rules laws, bylaws, regulations and rules laid down in the Code of Ethics in force at the University of Pavia, and with the principles of correct behaviour within university areas and in interpersonal relationships.
Violation of these rules implies the application of disciplinary sanctions for the transgressors, subject to the application of the civil and criminal codes.
Among the fundamental duties specified in the rules of conduct there is mutual respect, and respect for the organizational arrangements of the University. In addition, each member of the academic community is obliged to observe mutual respect, and to honour those places of research, teaching and study that must be protected both on account of their functions and for the fact that they often placed in buildings and sites of artistic, architectural and cultural-historical importance.
In light of the foregoing discussion, during the defence of the thesis and the subsequent proclamation, the graduating student is required to maintain appropriate behaviour in keeping with the solemnity of the ceremony and all guests should be invited to do the same, that is to attend the event in a festive manner albeit respectful of the institution, avoiding crowds, choruses and conduct that is inappropriate to the context.
After the ceremony, and once the hall has been left in a dignified manner to allow the smooth running of the subsequent session, the avoidance any kind of celebration (toasts, costumes, choruses, etc.) within the areas and courtyards of the University is recommended, so as not to annoy other members of the academic community.

What to do if the final degree examination must be postponed

In the event that the graduation examination will not be taking place, it is necessary for the student to cancel the application by accessing his/her Registered User Area and using the specific cancel application function. The student is required to submit a new application for the awarding of a qualification for the graduation session at which he/she intends to take part. In the event that a new application for the awarding of a qualification must be submitted, further payment is not necessary with the exception of the stamp duty that must be affixed to the new application form: the cost of preparing the degree certificate is in fact payable once only.
