Admissions for Regular Day Programs

Admissions for regular day programs

Thank you for considering Champlain – St. Lawrence in Quebec City for your college studies! St. Lawrence is a public CEGEP, costing no more than other CEGEPs in the Quebec City region, but offering the opportunity of studying in English.

Our admissions are processed directly at St. Lawrence. St. Lawrence is not a member of the Service régional d'admission au collégial de Québec (SRACQ). You must apply directly to St. Lawrence, as explained below, but that allows you to apply to St. Lawrence and another CEGEP before making your final decision.

In addition, if you would like to make a more gradual transition to college studies, we can provide you with a reduced course load over more semesters, direct you to complementary courses that will help you explore your options and arrange for you to attend helpful workshops. If you are accepted to the college and are interested in this type of transition, please contact our Academic Advisor.

We also offer a growing number of programs and courses through Continuing Education.

 

Our admissions for Fall 2021 are now closed.
