Enrolment / Re-enrolment in a doctoral program

IMPORTANT: Registration for a PhD must be renewed at the beginning of each academic year until the defense.

Doctoral registration is twofold:

1- Pedagogical registration on SIGED with the Doctoral School

First registration:
After having obtained the agreement for your registration, the ED creates a SIGED account and you will receive your SIGED identifiers to connect to the application.
You will have to fill in the first 4 tabs (personal information, curriculum, thesis and financing), then you will submit your application (menu "my actions" then "submit my application").
Your application will be checked by the administration of the doctoral school (validation 1/6), then transmitted for successive validations by your thesis director (2/6), your host unit director (3/6) and the director of the doctoral school (4/6).

Do not forget to :
Upload your diploma or official certificate of completion, as well as your transcripts in the "curriculum" tab when you first register
Upload your proof of funding for the current year

Re-registrations (D2, D3, D4, ...)
Please take note of the conditions of re-registration and send to the doctoral school E2M2 the requested elements according to the year of re-registration (D2, D3, D4 and more)
> For D2 and D3 re-enrollments, before submitting your application on SIGED, you must upload your monitoring committee report in the "additional documents" tab and upload your proof of funding for the current year.

2- Administrative registration with the higher education institution (Univ Lyon 1, INSA Lyon, ENS Lyon)

The administrative registration starts from the SIGED step "validation 5/6".
Depending on the institution in which you are registered, you will need to find out the internal procedures from their doctoral studies department:
- Université Lyon1 (Division Doctorat-HDR)
Please note: Before contacting the Doctorate-HDR Department, please check that the answer to your question is not in the frequently asked questions FAQ Doctorat Lyon 1
- INSA Lyon
 (Service Scolarité - School service)
- ENS Lyon (3rd cycle office)
To register administratively, the Doctoral Studies Department of your institution (Lyon 1, INSA Lyon or ENS Lyon) will ask you for a certain number of documents and the payment of registration fees.

SIGED form: it is not necessary to have this document signed by the directors (the "dematerialized" SIGED validation steps act as signatures)
