Students with temporary or permanent disabilities

Special needs students, (upon presentation of an official disability document) are exempt from paying fees.

Sciences Po is committed to welcoming and integrating students with temporary and permanent disabilities. This commitment is based on a strong sense of responsibility as well as compliance with its legal obligations according to the Law of February, 11, 2005.

The institution offers tuition waivers for students with disabilities recognized by the CDAPH (Commission Départementale des Personnes Handicapées) or cited in article L5212-13 of the Labor Code (fr.). Foreign students with disabilities are eligible for a waiver upon presentation of a temporary attestation from the Médecine Préventive Française (fr.). To renew this tuition waiver after the first year of registration, foreign students must confirm this status by obtaining any attestation cited in Article L5212-13 of the Labor Code.

This tuition fee waiver applies to students enrolled in Bachelor's or Master's degree. Students admitted to a one-year Master's programme are not eligible for this waiver. Sciences Po awards partial tuition fee waivers to a select number of outstanding students from one-year Master's programmes. Please contact the person in charge of the programme for further information about applying for this partial tuition fee waiver.
