If you are entering the School for the first time, information will be sent to you by email to log in. We advise you to use the Firefox browser from a PC. Please note: The site does not work on Macs.

While waiting for the registration to open, don't hesitate to download the list of documents to provide to get a head start!

Paiement of the registration fee

Registration will only be validated after payment of at least the first instalment and validation by the Schooling Department.

The amount of the registration fees is available on the page "Average budget for studies at Centrale Lyon".

You can also check the full price list by downloading the "Price List".

Fees can be paid in three successive monthly instalments. Please check the possible means of payment.

Please make sure you pay online before you complete the last step of the registration process. You will not be able to pay online once your application has been submitted.

I you think you will receive a notice of scholarship from the French government, we advise you not to proceed with the online payment until you received the notice. However, if this document is not received on the first day of the school year, a start of payment will be necessary. The subsequent production of the document justifying the grant will allow for reimbursement in the event of a fee waiver.

Step 3: Validation by the school

Once your registration has been validated by the school, you will receive an e-mail to activate your computer account and your institutional e-mail address. Please take the necessary steps as soon as possible.

You can then :

  • upload your school certificate or payment receipt,
  • submit a scholarship notification that arrived late,
  • update your address,
  • track your deadlines.

Step 4: Create your IZLY account

Once the CVEC has been paid, you will receive an email from CROUS to activate your IZLY account. If you are not concerned by this tax, this email will be sent to you once you have activated your computer account at the School and we have issued your card (step 3).

This step is important to allow you to have access to the university restaurant as soon as the new school year starts.

The payment of your meals will be done via this IZLY account using the IZLY application or your student card. Once the account is activated, remember to recharge it!
