Documents required for registration

What you need to know about registration

School/university/extra-curricular insurance or civil liability: an important supporting document

When you register, you must provide all the documents requested by your UFR/School/Institute.

You will be asked to provide proof of school/university/extra-curricular insurance or valid third-party insurance. All students must be covered by civil liability insurance for their studies (see University of Montpellier internal regulations).

It's an insurance policy that obliges you to repair damage caused to others through fault, carelessness or negligence, or by items you own, rent or borrow.

Important: which document do I need? Where can I get it?

  • You can obtain this document from your insurer, your mutual insurance company or when you open a bank account in France.
  • Make sure you don't over-insure: before taking out any insurance, check that your comprehensive home or rental insurance (or those of your parents) do not already cover your private life or school/extra-curricular activities.
  • The certificate must be valid on the date of registration and include your full name.
  • A professional liability policy does not correspond to the request made for an administrative registration.
  • Similarly, a membership form or a payment slip do not constitute proof of insurance: these 2 documents are not acceptable.
  • The certificate must bear the words "civil liability".
Student and Campus Life Contribution (CVEC)

Before registering at university, you need to log on to the cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr website to find out what you need to do.

  1. Complete the necessary formalities via cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr. Remember to have your INE number ready (be sure to spell your first and last names correctly). Your surname entered in the university registration application and the surname entered on your CVEC certificate must be identical and consistent with what is indicated on your identity documents).
  2. Keep your certificate, as you will be asked for it when you register, whether or not you are exempt from paying the contribution: the certificate is compulsory.
  3. Register or re-register according to the procedures in place at your faculty, school or institute.

The CVEC is a contribution "intended to promote the social, health, cultural and sporting welcome and support of students, and to bolster the preventive and health education actions carried out for them".

Depending on your situation, either :

  • you will be asked to pay a lump sum of 103€.
  • you'll be exempt

In both cases, you will be issued with a certificate: without it, you cannot complete your administrative registration.

Please note: For non-scholarship students, we invite you to log on now to the mesServices.etudiant.gouv. fr website to create an account and simplify your procedures.

If you register for more than one course in the same academic year, this contribution is only due for the first registration.

Please note: if this is your first registration at the UM, you will need to activate your ENT (Espace Numérique de Travail) account first.


I have to submit my supporting documents online via "PJ Web". What file formats are accepted and what is the maximum size for each file?

  • Authorized file extensions are: "jpeg", "jpg", "pdf", "png"; except for the ID photo, which must be supplied in "jpeg" or "jpg" only.

If you don't have any of these documents, a driving license in a format recognized by the European Union.
Documents refused: bus pass, train pass, etc...


I need to provide proof of school/university/extra-curricular/civil liability insurance. What is civil liability or school-university insurance?

Civil liability is an insurance policy that obliges all persons to repair damage caused to others through fault, carelessness or negligence, or by objects owned, rented or borrowed.
All students must be covered by civil liability insurance as part of their studies (see University of Montpellier internal regulations).

Where can I obtain a civil liability certificate?
From your insurer, your mutual insurance company or when you open a bank account in France.
The certificate must bear the words "responsabilité civile" ("civil liability").

Important :

  • Make sure you don't over-insure: before taking out any insurance, check that your comprehensive home or rental insurance (or those of your parents) do not already cover your private life or school/extra-curricular activities.
  • The certificate must be valid on the date of registration and include your full name.
  • A professional liability policy does not correspond to the request made for an administrative registration.
  • Similarly, a membership form or a payment slip do not constitute proof of insurance: these 2 documents are not acceptable.
  • The certificate must bear the words "civil liability".

I need to provide a transcript of my baccalaureate grades. Where can I find it?
You can download your transcript by logging into your Cyclades account (Menu -> My Documents).


I need to provide a notification from Parcoursup. Where can I find it?
You can download your Parcoursup notification by accessing your file on the Parcoursup website (My dashboard -> Admission -> Attestation).

I need to provide a MonMaster notification. Where can I find it?
You can download your MonMaster notification by accessing your file on the MonMaster website ("My applications" and "My work-study applications" sections).


I need to provide a summary of my online registration. Where can I find it?
To obtain a summary of your registration, you can download it from your computer account (ENT). Click on the "Recap. Registration".


I need to provide a passport photo. Which format is accepted?

The photo will appear on the student card. It must have a neutral background with no border, and be in "passport photo" format.
For online photo submission to the Pjweb application, only JPG and JPEG formats are accepted.
Please note: pdf format is NOT accepted.


I need to provide a declaration of honour. Where can I find it?
Please find the pdf and word form.

If you submit your supporting documents online (PJWeb application), you can download the procedure for signing a pdf.

If you can't use the pdf form, you can use the Word format and insert your digitized signature (the image of your signature), or print it out, complete it and scan it for online submission to the PJWeb application.


I have to provide the Journée Défense et Citoyenneté (JDC/JAPD). What do I do if I've lost my certificate of participation?

French students under the age of 25 must provide proof of their national service obligations in order to be authorized to register for examinations and competitions subject to public control.

Only one copy of the certificate is issued. However, before your 25th birthday, you can request (by post or e-mail) a status certificate from your local national service center (the one in the department where you took your census) or the one near your place of residence, along with a copy of your national identity card.


I need to provide a CVEC certificate. Where can I find it?

Before registering at university, you need to log on to the cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr website to find out what you need to do.

Depending on your situation, you will be asked for your CVEC number and/or certificate when you register.

The CVEC procedure must be carried out for the academic year of registration, i.e. 2024-2025.

Step 1: Complete the necessary formalities via cvec.etudiant.gouv.fr. Remember to have your INE number ready (please spell your first and last names correctly).

Step 2: Keep your certificate, as you'll be asked for it when you register, whether or not you're exempt from paying the contribution: the certificate is compulsory.

Step 3: Register or re-register according to the procedures in place at your faculty (UFR), school or institute.

Depending on your situation, either :

  • You will be asked to pay a lump sum of 103€.
  • You'll be exempt

In both cases, you will be issued with a certificate: without it, you cannot complete your administrative registration.

Please note: For non-scholarship students, we invite you to log on now to the mesServices.etudiant.gouv. fr website to create an account and simplify your procedures.

If you register for more than one course in the same academic year, this contribution is only due for the first registration.

The CVEC is a contribution "intended to promote the social, health, cultural and sporting welcome and support of students, and to bolster the preventive and health education actions carried out for them".
Whatever your situation (having paid the CVEC or exempt), you must provide a CVEC certificate when you register or re-register.


I'm a minor, what documents do I need to provide?

Applications for scholarships, and for student accommodation if required, are managed by the Montpellier CROUS after submission of a Dossier Social Etudiant (Student Social File). When you register, you'll be asked to show your scholarship notification, which includes details of your level and exempts you from tuition fees.

I didn't receive my CROUS notification when I registered. What should I do?
You will register at the full rate and as soon as you receive your notification, you will be able to request a refund of your registration fees.
Please note that if you request payment in three instalments, the refund will not be made until at least two weeks after the last instalment, i.e. within two to three months of your registration.
If you have declared yourself a scholarship holder when registering or re-registering online, but have not yet received notification from the CROUS, you will be asked to pay your registration fees in full.


How do I get my tuition fees refunded if I am recognized as a scholarship holder after I have enrolled?
Refunds are made by bank transfer. You must present the following to the Registrar's Office: your student card, a copy of both sides of the CROUS notification indicating your level, and a bank account details (preferably in your name). If the reimbursement is to be made to a third party's bank account, you must enclose a third-party reimbursement authorization with the RIB.

BEA / INE / Student number

What's the difference between these 3 numbers? The Base-Elèves Académique, or BEA, is a number assigned to every Sixième student in France, enabling individual identification in secondary education. The Identifiant National Etudiant, or INE, is assigned to every student enrolled in Terminale in France since 1995, or already enrolled in a French public higher education establishment.

Since 2018, the INE number has consisted of eleven characters, of which only the last 2 are letters.

The INE number assigned prior to 2018 consists of eleven characters, combining numbers and 1 to 5 letters.

The INE number differs from the social security number, also known as the INSEE number, in format (15 digits) and usage.

The INE is generally shown on the baccalauréat transcript (final or early tests). It also appears on school certificates issued by high schools and universities.

The student number (in addition to your name) serves as a personal identifier, particularly in cases of homonymy. The student number assigned by the University of Montpellier cannot be used at any other university, unlike the n°INE, which is recognized nationally.


I can't find my INE (Identifiant National Etudiant) number? The INE number is mandatory for your administrative registration.

  • If you were a candidate for a French baccalauréat or enrolled in French higher education: you can find it on your baccalauréat transcript or your higher education transcript.
  • If you are a foreign student who has already studied in French higher education, you will find your INE number on your student card, school certificate or transcript.

I don't have an INE, what should I do?
The university will issue you with an INE when you first register. It will then be valid at all French universities.


I forgot to enter my INE when I registered online and I've been given a new one. What should I do?
You must report the anomaly to the Registration Department immediately.

Postal address

I don't know my address at the start of the school year? What do I need to know when I register?

You can then notify the Enrolment Department of your change of address at any time. This address is particularly important, as it will be used to contact you by post if necessary.


I'm going to change my address during the academic year. Do I need to report this?
Yes, you need to report this as soon as possible to your Registrar. Your address is particularly important, as it will be used to contact you by post if necessary.
