Students with special needs

Only students with special needs can apply (motor, sensory, psychological disorders; learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysorthography, dyscalculia, etc.); chronic disabling illness, attention deficit disorder).

You cannot benefit from an additional third time in case of an accident and therefore a one-off disability.

Please note that no applications received by email will be accepted. Applications must be complete and contain certificates, balance sheets and other specific documents listed by disorder above.

The deadlines are very strict. The Special Needs Assessment Board (CEBP), which meets 4 times a year, has agreed that any application that is out of time will be refused in order to comply with the directive and ensure fair treatment for all students.
