One method for ensuring success during your college studies is to gain a good understanding of your program, solidifying your academic project and taking charge of it as soon as possible. If you require assistance with your admission, your student file, your courses, or your course schedule, our student advisors are available to help you.
A student advisor can assist you for the duration of your program. Each semester, they will propose a tentative course selection schedule catered to your current situation. They will also work closely with your teachers, who also support your efforts. Our Student Advisors will be happy to answer your questions, guide you onto a path of success, and lead you towards achieving your academic goals and clarifying your options.
They can also help you manage your degree progression and the many obligations you must assume as a student.
You may meet your student advisor to discuss any of the following subjects:
- Support for academic success
- Specific study projects
- Program changes
- Conditional admission / student success contract
- Absences from class
- Course changes and cancellations
- Request for a course equivalence, substitution or exemption
- Request for a Permanent Incomplete (see below)
Your academic success matters to us! If you need help, contact your student advisor. They are there to help you!

Some helpful information
Permanent Incompletes: A permanent incomplete is an official status within a student’s record indicating that the student experienced an extraordinary circumstance mid-semester and was unfit to complete the course(s).
- For permanent incompletes, you must provide appropriate documentation proving you couldn’t complete your studies for a period of three (3) weeks or more for a serious motive, including illness or death of a spouse or death of a family member (see Regulation Promoting Success for details).
- The College does not give permanent incompletes because you are failing a course or because you were absent for a final exam.
Course drops: To drop a course, you must do so before the end of the second week of classes.

Workshops, Tutoring and English Language Remedial Classes
The College organizes workshops for students who need assistance with their studies. This can include help with note taking, study practices, time management, stress management and exam preparation. The College also offers peer tutoring as an added measure for success.
Every semester, students can register for the English Remedial course to improve their language skills. Take advantage of this language support measure as it does not lead to an official grade on your transcript!
