Pago Pa Payment

PagoPA, what is it?

PagoPA is an electronic payment system designed to make it easy, safe and transparent to pay Italian Public Administration institutions.

As of 13 April 2021, it is the only payment method accepted by the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore for the payment of student tuition and university fees.

Through PagoPA:
  • you can pay online via home-banking or the smartphone app, or in person at a bank, tobacco shop, etc.;
  • you can pay using your preferred payment method (credit card, bank transfer, etc.);
  • you can choose the bank;
  • you can pay h24; 
  • you get immediate confirmation of payment; if any charges apply for your transaction, these will be made known to you immediately;
  • The security of payments and personal data is guaranteed through standard protection protocols.

Important: students who do not use a bank account in Italy, or credit card issued by an Italian bank, or have not yet activated their Carta Ateneo+ student card to be used as a bank card, must follow the instructions below described under the “pay at a later time” (PAGA PIU’ TARDI) option via the Scrigno Pago Facile procedure provided by the Banca Popolare di Sondrio.

PagoPA payment procedure

You can decide to

  • pay immediately by logging in the on-line PagoPA payment section (press the button PAGA ON LINE) (there  are  different  possible  methods,  as debiting  a  current  account  or  payment  by  credit  card or PayPal).  This  credit card payment  method  is  possible  for maximum amounts of 1500,00 Euros   and using credit card issued by an Italian bank;
  • pay at a later time by printing the PagoPA payment slip in PDF/paper format, that also contains the bar code and a QR identification code of payment, that is useful if you wish to pay at a bank counter or other PSPs adhering to the PagoPA payment system (e.g., via a Sisal, Lottomatica or Banca5 terminal, or at the post office counter) (select PAGA PIU’ TARDI)

Use the payment slip information (Bill Notification Code and Beneficiary Organisation Code CBILL) to pay online by way of the Banca Popolare di Sondrio – Scrigno Pago Facile portal https://pagofacile.popso.it/, to pay with your credit or debit card.

IMPORTANT – If you have a credit issued by a non-Italian bank, you will need to use the Banca Popolare di Sondrio portal INSTEAD of the “PAGA ONLINE” option that connects with the Italian Public Administration portal where only credit cards issued by Italian banks may be used.

Scrigno Pago Facile is a service offered by Banca Popolare di Sondrio that lets you simply, quickly and securely pay utility bills, fees, taxes and amounts due to third parties (public and private organisations, businesses, etc.) that adhere to the initiative.
