Academic Advising

Academic Advisors assist students in a number of areas related to program progression, course selection, academic performance, and university and scholarship applications. During the year, academic advisors invite university representatives to the Campus to provide information to students about the various programs offered and to answer questions concerning admissions to the universities. An academic advisory service is available to students on a year-round basis. The function of an Academic Advisor is to assist students in selecting a program of study in accordance with their individual aptitudes and career objectives which will lead to a D.E.C. (Diplôme des Études Collégiales). Academic Advisors also inform the students about prerequisites for admission to university programs. Academic Advisors are available during the registration period to assist students in their course selection and to answer any questions students might have regarding their profiles and/or programs. Throughout the year, the Academic Advisors are available for consultation in any of the following areas:

  • Academic standing
  • Change of program
  • Course Commandites (permission to study at another Cégep)
  • Course adjustment
  • Course load
  • Course selection
  • Extra course requests
  • Graduate evaluation
  • Registration
  • Scholarship applications
  • Summer school courses
  • University application forms
