How to enroll at Télécom Paris: tuition fees and scholarships

Administrative steps

Campus Life Contribution (CVEC)

Since 2018, you are required to pay the CVEC contribution. This was introduced to support students’ social integration and their health, cultural and sport services on campus.
The CVEC contribution for the 2020/2021 school year costs €91. It must be paid before registration every year.
Students who enroll in more than one program for the same academic year will only have to pay the contribution once. The CVEC contribution must be paid online here: CVEC or Mes services étudiants.
