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.


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


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.
