Contribution Vie Étudiante et de Campus - CVEC

As of fall 2018, students enrolled as traditional students must pay the Contribution Vie Etudiante et de Campus, or CVEC. This contribution is designed to finance the range of services available to students for health care, sports, culture and student initiatives.

The CVEC is a tax collected by the CROUS for an amount of €92 for the year 2020/2021.

Payments are made online at cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr or via the mes services étudiants portal

WHO HAS TO PAY THE CVEC?

Students enrolled as traditional students in a higher education institution must obtain a certificate of payment or exemption from the CVEC in order to register at their higher education institution.
Exemptions:
  • Recipients of grants based on social criteria, beneficiaries of an annual allocation granted as part of a CROUS special aid, and grant recipients in health and social service industries in the region. Students awaiting notification of grants from the CROUS must first pay the tax and will be able to be reimbursed following notification of the grant (the reimbursement module opens in September).
  • Student refugees and registered asylum seekers with the right to remain on French soil.
  • Students benefiting from subsidiary protection.
     
NB. even if you are exempt, you still need to complete the procedure online!
