A few questions…

What are the pre-requisites to apply to a CEGEP?

All applicants to a CEGEP for any given DEC program must have the Quebec Secondary School Diploma or the equivalent

In addition to the above basic admission requirement, some programs have other requirements and/or pre-requisites.

This information is available through your high school guidance counselor.

If I don't have all the pre-requisites for the program that I am considering, how do I get them?

Specific pre-requisites of Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics or Physical Science can be taken at a CEGEP, Continuing Education, in high school, or at adult education centres. Please note that students cannot use the courses taken at a CEGEP to complete their Diploma of Secondary Studies.

If you are currently in high school, please contact your guidance counselor as soon as possible in order to complete the pre-requisites for the program of your choice.
