Registration formalities

Registration is done online to make it easier. You will receive by email the login address and your username in order to register, to make your student social security affiliation and your payment. All the documents to be provided will be specified on the registration website.

In order to prepare yourself, do not hesitate to download in advance the list of documents to provide (in French). As a reminder, no initial training file can be validated without the payment of the CVEC.

For faster processing of your file, we advise you to make a payment online.

Attention: if you wish to pay online, be sure to do so before validating the very last step of registration. You will not be able to pay online once your file has been sent.

It is also possible to pay your registration on the first day of school. Please consult the "Accepted means of payment" form for more information. A spreading in 3 times is available, online as at the beginning of the school year.

Registration will only be final after payment of at least one deadline and validation of your file by the school service.

Your health coverage

The terms of student health coverage are changing this year: most students are now attached to the general social security system and no longer pay contributions.

If you were not yet affiliated with a student social security scheme, you will continue to be affiliated to your current social protection scheme, often that of your parents or legal guardians.

To prepare your arrival

Read the letter to admitted students, gathering useful information on booking a room in a university residence, important documents to bring on the first day of school to complete the administrative file, preventive medicine and sports.
