Declaration of Value for Recognition of AUR degrees in Italy (for work/study purposes)
The American University of Rome (AUR) is licensed by the Delaware Department of Education (DDOE), incorporated in Washington D.C., and accredited in the United States by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).
The American University of Rome is authorized by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) to operate as an American university in Italy.
AUR degrees can be validated in Italy by following the Italian legislative procedure on the recognition of academic titles from secondary institutions in the European Region, as determined by the Lisbon Convention, 11 April 1997, http://www.miur.it/0006Menu_C/0012Docume/0098Normat/2547Ratifi.htm.
Students who graduate with an AUR degree and who intend to continue their studies in an Italian university, will in some cases be asked to provide a Declaration of Value (Dichiarazione di Valore) when applying for admission, depending on the program and at the discretion of the university.
The ‘Dichiarazione di Valore’ (Declaration of Value) is a document that certifies the value of an American degree that is obtained outside of the United States. The document is issued by the Italian Diplomatic institutions in the US.
