Admission Requirements

To be admitted to a certificate program students must hold a CEGEP diploma (DCS or equivalent) or be 21 years of age and over who do not have the normal academic
background for admission may be admitted as mature students. Students between 18 and 21 who do not have a CEGEP diploma but have at least a high school leaving certificate may be accepted into a qualifying program to be determined by the Department. Formal admission to the certificate program will normally follow upon satisfactory completion of the qualifying program. Students below 18 years of age without a CEGEP diploma (DEC) will not be admitted to a certificate program nor will they be permitted to take courses. In addition to these requirements, applicants must provide two (2) letters of recommendation from their aboriginal community.
