At the start of each semester, you are required to validate your personal and academic details in the Academic Registration Form, using the “FRAC” tab.

Once you have validated your personal details, and after we have received your payment for semester fees, your enrolment certificate (PDF) will be available in the “personal details” tab.

From August, you will be able to register for courses in the “course registration” tab, provided that you have already validated the FRAC form. Registration deadline for the Autumn semester: 27th September 2019.

You will receive your student card, called CAMIPRO card, either by post (Swiss diploma) or on matriculation days (foreign diploma). This card must be updated every semester in a CAMIPRO terminal. It allows you to enjoy various services and advantages.
