What is the CVEC?
The contribution to student and campus life (CVEC)
The Ministry has introduced a compulsory tax, applicable to all students and collected by the CROUS. This contribution is intended to encourage the reception and social, health, cultural and sporting support of students. All students* (including apprentices) must pay the CVEC before their administrative registration.
The amount of the CVEC
Its amount is €95 to be paid online here: https://www.messervices.etudiant.gouv.fr/envole/
When you register for the administration, you must bring with you the certificate of payment or exemption from the CVEC (which can be downloaded once the tax has been paid).
*NB 1: CROUS scholarship students and exchange students do not pay the tax but must go to the website to obtain a certificate of exemption.
*NB 2: Students on professionalization contracts and continuing education do not have to pay the CVEC and do not need a certificate of exemption.
