Student success is a priority at Champlain College Saint-Lambert. Our teachers are dedicated to helping students achieve their maximum potential. Learning, however, is not limited to the classroom, and as such Champlain College offers a variety of services to enhance both the academic and non-academic college experience. We strongly encourage students to explore the resources available early in their Cégep career.
If you’re not sure about which courses you should register for next semester, the requirements of a university program you are interested in, whether you should change your present program, or simply want to discuss your academic standing, Champlain College Saint-Lambert’s Academic Advisors are there to help you. The Academic Advisors are located in the Registrar’s Office in Room F-103. Drop in to make an appointment. The Academic Advising page details what the advisors can help you out with!

Located on the second floor of the library, the Learning Centre aims to enhance and support the educational programs of Champlain College Saint-Lambert by providing extended access to technological and educational support services.
Students may visit the Learning Centre to study with a tutor, to work on a computer, or to pick up a handout on study skills. Peer tutors are available in just about every subject. Our peer tutors take a course which focuses on tutoring skills and techniques. All requests for help are carefully evaluated. Computers are accessible for student use during library hours. The Centre houses a variety of programs to assist students with word processing, Internet access and course-related software.
Students seeking help with general study skills or specific course material can take advantage of our tutoring services. Students requiring tutoring assistance with coursework should see their teacher first. The Learning Centre (located on the second floor of the Library) offers a variety of study aids ranging from peer and professional tutoring to video and computer tutorials. Peer tutoring services are available to Champlain College Saint-Lambert students free of charge. Peer tutors (students who have been trained to tutor) work with students on general academic strategies (note taking, exam prep, text analysis, time management) for specific subjects (including English, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics) and help students identify their personal learning styles. According to the College’s internal statistics, peer tutors help over 90% of the students they were working with finish their courses with grades at the same level, or higher than they expected, than without tutoring. Also, nearly 100% of the students tutored reported feeling that tutoring helped them to become more independent learners.
Students who require tutoring services must make an appointment with Doreen Kelly in the Learning Centre.
Accommodations for Students Requiring Adapted Services
Students with documented disabilities or special needs are entitled to, by law, appropriate services and accommodations during their studies. Such disabilities include, but are not limited to: physical and sensory disabilities involving hearing, vision, or motor skills; organic disorders; diagnosed learning disabilities such as dyslexia or dysorthographia or medical conditions due, for example, to an illness or an accident. Services and accommodations may include extended time and the use of a quiet room for completion of exams, the use of special software or equipment, or the specialized assistance of another person. Where the request for accommodation is based on pre-existing conditions, the student should typically notify the College prior to the start of the semester. Supporting documentation signed by a medical or qualified professional must be presented in order to benefit from accommodations.
For more information, please contact Marie Pupo, Adapted Services Counsellor, by phone at 450-672-7360, ext. 411, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
