Academic Programs

After cégep, you would like to work? Career programs are for you. These 3 year programs provide you with the skills needed to enter the workforce. Plus, a diploma from a career program can also provide access to university.

If you are headed to university right after your college graduation, pre-university programs are what you need. These two year programs prepare you for your university education.

Are you missing prerequisites? Still unsure which program is for you? Thinking of taking a few remedial courses to improve your academic standing? Springboard to a DCS is for you.

For the full list of programs offered in SRAM cégeps, use the Table of available programs. The description of each program can be found on the college's website or in the Guide pratique des études collègiales – including an English section found in book stores and libraries.  Additionnally, the ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur releases every year a directory named  College Circuit in which you can see the DCS programs offered in the whole province of Québec.
