Admission Requirements for Quebec Residents
The basic entrance requirement for all students applying to Champlain College Saint-Lambert is the Quebec Diploma of Secondary Studies.
Admission Requirements for Out of Province and International Students
As a post-secondary institution of higher learning, Champlain College Saint-Lambert requires all candidates for admission to possess a diploma of graduation from their province, state or country. The eleventh year of a twelve-year system may not be substituted for a high school diploma, since candidates will not have met the terminal objectives associated with the completion of their secondary education.
Out of Province Applicants – Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents
Quebec law requires students who are not deemed residents of Quebec to pay additional fees. Please note that these fees are subject to change without notice.
Quebec law requires International Students to pay additional fees. Please note that these fees are subject to change without notice.
International students must provide the following documentation before arriving in Canada. International students should begin the process of obtaining these documents once they have received their acceptance letter from Champlain College Saint-Lambert:
- A “Certificat d’acceptation du Québec” (C.A.Q.), which must be obtained from the Ministère d’Immigration, Diversité et Inclusion of the Province of Québec. More information is available from the Ministry.
- A study permit from the Government of Canada. More information is available from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. NB: Students admitted into a 3-year technical program will also obtain a student work permit for their 6th semester stage component (field work) in their final year.
- International students must provide proof of enrollment in a comprehensive health and accident insurance plan that is approved by the college. Students may obtain such an insurance plan through the auspices of the college.
NOTE: International students may only apply for a winter semester if they have a student visa which is valid until the end of the winter semester.
Language Requirements for International and Out of Province Students
All applicants whose mother tongue or whose secondary school language of instruction was not English should submit the result of either:
