The administrative registration must be done before the beginning of each academic year and must be validated before the beginning of the courses: tuition fees paid and student card issued. Only the administrative registration gives the status of student, and allows you to take the exams and obtain the diploma.
Payment of the Student and Campus Life Contribution (CVEC)
Before applying, you must pay the CVEC, the Student and Campus Life Contribution (Contribution vie étudiante et de campus) to the CROUS student welfare office by logging on to https://cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr/ (in French). The CVEC was introduced to provide social, health, cultural and sporting support for students. The amount of the CVEC is €92 (academic year 2020-2021).
Once you have paid the CVEC, you will receive an email with your CVEC certificate. This certificate includes your certificate number, which you will need when you apply. Scholarship holders based on social criteria, refugees, beneficiaries of subsidiary protection and asylum seekers are exempt from paying the CVEC but they must log on to the www.messervices.etudiant.gouv.fr/envole/ website to obtain their CVEC certificate number.
Tuition fees for degree programs (2020-2021 academic year)
Tuition fees for Université Paris-Saclay degree programs are set by decree of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
Tuition fees are around :
undergraduate programme: 170€
- Master programme: 243€
- PhD programme: 380€
Policy set forth by Université Paris-Saclay regarding the "differentiated tuition fees" for non-EU students
In keeping with the resolution voted by its executive board, dated December 15, 2020, Université Paris-Saclay is intent on developing a proactive policy to attract national, EU and non-EU students.
As such, for the 2021-2022 academic year, successful candidates affected by the decree and order relating to tuition fees in higher education institutions falling within the juridiction of the Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, will need to pay the same tuition fees as that of national students without having to make any explicit appeal to this end.
Partial exemption will be enforced throughout the duration of their studies at Université Paris-Saclay, except in the case of repetition, where a commission will adjudicate on maintaining such exemption.
The President of Université Paris-Saclay
In view of the Education Code, and in particular articles L. 712-2, L and R. 719-50;
In view of the provisions of Decree n°2019-1131, dated November 5, 2019, establishing Université Paris-Saclay and approving its statutes;
In view of the decision of the Board, dated March 2, 2020, electing Mrs. Sylvie RETAILLEAU president of the University;
Given that the widespread social and economic crisis occurring in Lebanon has placed Lebanese students who are registered, or who wish to register with French higher education institutions, in great difficulty;
Given that a great number of these students are deprived of financial resources, or that their resources have been drastically depreciated;
Given the support that France has decided to offer Lebanon;
Considering that article R. 719-50 gives the President authority to rule on the partial or total exemption of tuition fees for a category of students, within the framework of the general criteria and strategic policy as defined by the board, to a limit of 10 % of registered students, not including those persons mentioned in article R. 719-49 ;
To exempt students of Lebanese nationality of all tuition fees for registration at Université Paris-Saclay for the 2020-2021 academic year. Such exemption applies to registration for national undergraduate and master’s programmes, first year of doctoral studies, technical studies, national degrees in medical and pharmaceutical studies, and for undergraduate initial training degrees whose tuition fees are, at the most, equal to those of national degrees.
