1) Visit the Campus France website at http://www.usa.campusfrance.org/
2) Click “Application” at the top of the homepage
3) Since you’ve been accepted to your program, click on “Students already accepted.” Alternatively, if you have not yet been accepted to a degree program or study abroad program, then click on “Students not yet accepted.”
4) Once you’ve clicked on “Students already accepted,” click on the option you prefer, 3-week or 3-day processing. The 3-day expedited process is $150 more expensive than the 3-week one, so I recommend started early to go through the regular process save some money.
5) Scroll down and choose the option best suited to you; in this case select “I am a study-abroad/exchange/dual-degree student.” If you were completing a degree entirely at a French institution and not just studying abroad, you would select “I have been accepted to a French language class, a professional training, a full-time undergraduate/graduate program, a PhD program.”
6) After selecting the appropriate option, create an “Etudes en France” account. You can do this by returning to the Campus France homepage and clicking “Register” in the green circle on the right hand side of the page.
7) To finish creating your account, select “Espace Campus France USA” in the scroll-down menu on the new page and fill out the contact and ID information form, then click “Create an account.”
8) You’ll then receive an e-mail, which you’ll open and click on the link to activate your account.
9) Return to the Campus France homepage and log onto your account in the green circle on the right hand side of the page.
10) Click “Study-abroad/exchange/dual-degree program, specialty program, PhD” at the top of the page.
11) Under “Finalize the procedure” select “I am a study-abroad/exchange/dual-degree student” from the scroll-down menu. You can combine several programs if you are planning on completing more than one (i.e. a study abroad program and language courses), except for multiple degree-seeking programs. Click “Add.”
12) Complete the form about your US and France studies. If your study-abroad advisor already registered this program, when you fill out the information on the program, the description will automatically show up. If not, you’ll have to write the description yourself. You’ll need to provide dates of enrollment and a short essay (1500 characters max.) on your motivations to study in France. Click “register.”
13) Upload your official acceptance letter from your program. Make sure you check the document afterwards to make sure it uploaded correctly in a legible format. Click “Register.”
14) Check to see if “Personal information” is listed as “incomplete.” This means that your study-abroad advisor has not previously registered the program. If the program is already registered, then you will be exempt from filling this out. If not, click on “Personal information.”
15) Upload an official passport-style photograph and a scan of your photo ID. Fill out the contact information and any scholarship or grant information with a supporting document.
16) You may also need to fill out “Education and professional experience.” You can tell if there is a yellow “Incomplete” listed next to the section.
17) Upload a resume.
18) Then select “A year of higher education” and click “Add.” Select the current school year in the scroll-down menu and then choose “Current program, I will fill out scores and supportive documents later” because study abroad students are not required to provide transcripts.
19) Complete the “Language skills” section (again indicated by a yellow “Incomplete). Here you can indicate if you’ve taken any proficiency exams or had any previous stays in France. You can also upload any other documents such as records or admissions to show your language skills. Click “Modify” to indicate your proficiency levels in French, English, and any other languages you may speak.
20) Back on the homepage of your account, click “Back” to get to the “Finalize the procedure” page. You’ll see that the “Personal information” link has a green “Complete” next to it.
21) BEFORE clicking “Confirm the information and submit the application,” you must pay your fee. Pay your online fee here http://tapif.org/campus/. You can pay with a credit or debit card. Have your Campus France ID number on hand (it’s available on the top right corner of your account). You can alternatively pay through a money order made out to MCUFEU.
22) Check on your Etudes en France account that your payment has been received once you receive an e-mail.
23) Return to your application and click “Confirm the information and submit the application.”
24) After reviewing your application, click “I confirm my final choice to Campus France USA.” You will then receive an e-mail confirming they have received your application.
25) You’ll then need to return to this page http://www.usa.campusfrance.org/en/temoignage/students-already-accepted-regular-service-3-weeks
26) Scroll down to Step 3. There you can print out the cover page that you’ll need to send.
27) Fill out the cover page and mail it in the same envelope along with a photocopy of your official acceptance letter to the program, and the processing fee (either the money order + a photocopy of the money order, OR a copy of your online payment receipt). Mail the envelope to this address:
Campus France USA
4101 Reservoir Road, NW
Washington, D.C. 20007
28) Be patient and wait. Once Campus France has reviewed your application, you’ll receive an e-mail with your attestation that will allow you to make an appointment at the consulate.
