Since the 1st July 2018, students who are definitely enrolled in higher education courses in France have to pay the “student and campus contribution” (CVEC: “contribution de vie étudiante et de campus”). The amount of €91 has to be paid directly on the CVEC payment portal of the French government. The first step in order to pay is to create a MesServices.etudiant.gouv.fr account.
