The Student and Campus Life Contribution (CVEC) is intended to promote the reception and social, health, cultural and sports support of students and to support the preventive and health education actions carried out for them.

If you are an international exchange student in France, you are not concerned by this contribution. You do not have to pay it.

EXCEPTION: Students who are in a double degree program and who pay the registration fees at the Université Savoie Mont Blanc must pay the CVEC. Double degree students who pay their registration fees at their home university do not pay the CVEC.

What is the CVEC?
