The institution applies the rules incurring the payment of differentiated fees by non-E.U students.

The full amount of the owed tuition fees does not have to be paid at the start of the academic year: an instalment plan may be scheduled.

In addition, admitted students will receive information about the various scholarships available to Grenoble INP-UGA students.

Finally, if your personal situation justifies it, a partial or total exemption may be decided upon, on request, by the Student Social Commission. The Commission's decision is based on a social evaluation and an examination of the financial resources of the student and her/his family.

Exemption from tuition fees cannot be guaranteed, as the number of exempted students is limited by national regulations.


Student Life and Campus Contribution (CVEC)

Each student in a higher education institution must obtain, prior to enrollment, a certificate of payment of the Student Life and Campus Contribution (CVEC), by payment or exemption. For information, it is €95 in 2022-2023


If you have limited resources, you might be granted a scholarship based on social criteria to help pay for your studies. Scholarship requests must be submitted between January 15th and April 30th through the CROUS website.

In addition, many international students apply for scholarships through programs in their home country or through CampusFrance.  Grenoble IAE does not offer additional scholarships for international students.

High-Level Athletes
