Can I get financial assistance?

Canadian or resident students enrolled in a college program are eligible for two types of funding:

No. As of the 2013 winter term, the Ministère de l’Éducation changed its policy regarding Quebec residency and required identification documents for Quebec-born students.

  • Accepted : Birth certificates issued by the Directeur de l’état civil du Québec, issued after January 1, 1994, are accepted. Also acceptable is a Canadian passport that clearly indicates the place of birth in Quebec or other birth registrations (e.g. the blue plastic card) issued by the Quebec government before 1994.

If I provide reference letters, will I have a better chance of being admitted to a program?
See less

No, reference letters are not considered as part of an application.

Is there any recourse if I am refused admission to a program?
See less

If your application for admission has been denied, you may request a review of the decision, but only if you believe that the admission and selection process was not properly applied, i.e., that it is flawed. This request for review J’ai compris plusieurs documents pour une seul demande d’admission (ex. la demande d’admission pour le DES). Merci de confirmer cannot be based solely on your desire to be admitted to the program.

However, if the review committee believes that the process is indeed flawed, the file and the request for review will be re-evaluated and a new recommendation (acceptance or refusal) will be made to the Registrar. The Registrar will send you the final decision (acceptance or refusal) without appeal.

To file a request for the decision to be reconsidered:

  1. Request a review of your denied application, in writing, by sending it to the Registrar’s Office—Admissions. This must be sent within fifteen (15) business days (as evidenced by the postmark) following your receipt of the email informing you of the denial of admission to a given program. You must state, in detail, the reasons why you believe the admission and selection process was not properly applied. This information must be factual and without any insistence on being admitted to the program.
  2. Mark the envelope and the letter as follows: “Request for review of denied application.”
  3. Indicate your full name, date of birth and application reference number, as well as the title of the program you are applying for, on the review request letter.
  4. Do not attach any additional documents. The review committee will make its decision based on the documents submitted at the time of application.
