Student Life and Campus Contribution (CVEC)

What is CVEC?

The “Student success and orientation” law (loi “ORE”) presented by the government has established a student life and campus contribution (CVEC) (fr.) of €95 per year (2022/2023 rate). This fee is due every academic year by all students enrolled in higher education studies.

This contribution is mandatory and aims to strengthen the social, health, cultural and sports support of students, as well as to reinforce prevention and health education actions carried out for them.

Subject to the situations defined below, all students registered or in the process of being enrolled, must pay this amount to the CROUS via the website: (fr.)

Please note:

  • French government scholarship holders (CROUS, Campus France), refugees, beneficiaries of subsidiary protection or who are registered as asylum seekers are exempt: however, they must complete the online procedure on the website in order to obtain an acknowledgment of payment by exemption.
  • Students in exchange agreement, who undertake a period of mobility in France, are not subject to the CVEC: they have no steps to perform and are exempt from paying the contribution fee.

Once the payment has been carried out, the attestation of payment will be necessary to complete your online administrative registration (step 5: uploading the required documents).

The CVEC web site, process, and FAQ are only accessible in French for now. Should you need a walkthrough, consult our CVEC step-by-step guide (PDF, 1.7 Mo).
