Law 1901 defines association as "an agreement by which two or more persons pool, on a permanent basis, their knowledge or activity for a purpose other than to share profits". To create your association, you must therefore be at least two adults, united around a non-profit project.

Once the students have agreed on the purpose of their association, the following procedure must be followed:

  • Draft the statutes of the association
  • Declare the association to the prefecture : the process is carried out online.
  • Take the following steps (open a bank account / take out insurance)


The SVEC will be able to assist you in the creation and provide you with resource documents to facilitate your steps.

The Université Savoie Mont Blanc encourages and supports student associations. It pursues a proactive policy to promote the development and activities of its associations, in particular through logistical, organisational and financial support.

To this end, it shall establish the labelling charter which the labelled student associations undertake to respect.

Labelling is a procedure to be renewed every year, at the beginning of the academic year. The label, a guarantee of quality, allows student associations to access services or funding (FSDIE) to enable them to carry out their actions.

The Fonds de Solidarité et de Développement des Initiatives Étudiantes (FSDIE) provides subsidies for projects and associative actions. The FSDIE commission examines the aid to be provided at different times during the academic year and classifies it into 3 categories:

  • Category 1: Transversal projects carried out by one or more associations from different structures concerning an entire campus and open to all students.
  • Category 2: Sports and humanitarian events that can be funded because they contribute to the promotion of the Université Savoie Mont-Blanc.
  • Category 3: Projects concerning only one sector.
