Abstract: Many of the operational decisions taken in the current processes from universities use dichotomous thinking, characterized by the division of the elements analysed into two distinct classes, according to the bivalent logic 1 / 0, “it belongs” or “it does not belong”. The concept of fuzzy set introduced in mathematics by L. Zadeh in 1965 allows a less rigid modelling, with various nuances, of certain phenomena, by considering several intermediate degrees of membership, placed between full membership and non-membership of the elements analysed to a certain attribute. In Romanian public universities, the places allocated to faculties can be funded by the state budget (budgeted places) or on tuition fees, the entrance being based on an entrance examination. The present article puts forward a model based on fuzzy techniques which establishes a student’s belonging to the set of budget students. The model does not change the financial input of the university and could represent an important motivator for students. An algorithm is developed and a numeric example is presented.
