Admission Requirements for DCS Programs

To be admitted into a program that leads to the attainment of a Diploma of College Studies (DCS), the applicant must meet one of the three following requirements (a, b, or c):

a) Have graduated from a high school and is in one of the following situations:

1. The applicant has obtained a high school diploma (HSD) in the youth sector, or in the adult sector.

NOTE: An applicant with a HSD who did not succeed in the following subjects:

  • Secondary V Language of Instruction;
  • Secondary V Second Language;
  • Secondary IV Mathematics;
  • Secondary IV Science and Technology or Technological and Scientific Applications;
  • Secondary IV History and Citizenship Education.

Will be required to take part in remedial activities for the missing courses.

2. The applicant has obtained a Secondary School Vocational Diploma (SSVD) and has suc­cessfully completed the following courses:

  • Secondary V Langue of Instruction;
  • Secondary V Second Language;
  • Secondary IV Mathematics.

OR

b) Has completed training that is deemed equivalent by the College.

OR

c) Has completed training and has work experience deemed sufficient by the College and has inter­rupted his/her full-time studies for a cumulative period of at least 36 months.

NOTE: The College can require that remedial activities be completed by virtue of article 2.2, third paragraph, of the RREC.

 

  • Satisfy the particular admission conditions established by the Ministry that specify the program course prerequisites.
  • Satisfy the particular admission conditions established by the College for each program.
  • The remedial activities designated in article 4.1 will need to be successfully completed during the first session of college studies. In certain excep­tional cases, a prolongation of that delay can be granted following a written request by the student and after consultation with the student advisor.
  • A conditional admission is granted to the ap­plicant who has not completed all required graduation units leading to the HSD, without exceeding 6 units. The same treatment will be made for an applicant with an SSVD who do not have all of the units in the designated sub­jects to be admitted to college studies.
