The “Parcoursup Mobility Grant” campaign will open on July 8. The filing of your request will only be possible after your actual registration in the institution located in another academy than your academy of origin.

The CROUS examines the request taking into account the student's situation and the financial impact that mobility could have (possible move, cost of living and installation costs).

  • For students participating in the 1st phase of accommodation allocation with mandatory DSE:
    • The allocation of housing is now complete.
    • If you have received a proposal, you have until July 7 11:59 p.m. to confirm it.
  • For other students (especially international students) who do not meet the requirements for filing an DSE, you will only be able to submit a Housing request from July 9th, during the additional phase.

Each student in initial training in a Higher education institution must pay CVEC to register in his/her institution: the CVEC certificate will be required to finalize your registration.

The acquittal procedure, by payment or by claiming the right to exemption, for registrations for the 2020-2021 academic year, has been possible since May 4, 2020.

As a reminder, it is advisable to proceed with the acknowledgment of CVEC in parallel with the finalization of your registration in an initial training and after having received the admission confirmation from the institution which delivers this training.

You do not have to pay CVEC if you register:

  • training delivered by secondary schools (Lycée) such as BTS
  • in long-life training

We invite you to remain vigilant about your online payments:

  • The CVEC payment is to be made only on the secure platform and by no other way
  • The payment of your booking fees for Crous accommodation is to be made only on the Cité’U secure platform, and by no other way 

If you have already requested a DSE (student social folder) with your old INE, you must add a letter specifying your new INE and attach proof of the latter when sending your DSE.

Your Crous will proceed to amend the identifier in your file.

ONE email address = ONE user (not a family)

NB: this is the reason why certain files from PARCOURSUP cannot be created automatically in MyServices, and you must change the email address in PARCOURSUP to be able to continue your procedures.
