All are welcome at Dawson Open House 2023

For the first time in four years, Dawson is opening our doors to welcome everyone on the afternoon of Sunday, Oct. 22 from 1 PM to 4 PM. No reservations required; just come!

It is important to note that everyone is welcome to visit Open House, apply for programs and attend Dawson, whether or not you hold an English eligibility certificate.

With the implementation of Law 14 (Bill 96), all Dawson students will have to take more French courses. Students with English eligibility will have more courses in French and will write the English Exit Exam in order to graduate.

Students who do not have English eligibility will also have more courses in French and will take specific French courses to prepare them to pass the Épreuve uniforme de français, required for graduating.

Support for French, English and all courses

To support students, Dawson offers free tutoring services for French through our CLÉO Centre as well as free tutoring for English and peer tutoring for almost all disciplines at the Academic Skills Centre.
