The Cégep de Rimouski offers a program called Tremplin DEC which is adapted to the needs of students whose knowledge of French is not sufficient to be admitted in a regular program and who wish to:

  • Experience a total French immersion experience in a francophone college;
  • Improve their French skills in order to succeed in higher education (college or university) *;
  • Improve their chances of entering the labour market.

* The Cégep de Rimouski is the only Cégep in the college system that works in collaboration with a university in such an immersion project. The Université du Québec à Rimouski and the Cégep de Rimouski work together to ensure that students with a low level of French can, through French immersion, improve their French language skills sufficiently to continue their studies.

As part of the Tremplin DEC - French Immersion and Integration Program, French upgrading activities are added to the ministerial objectives specific to the Tremplin DEC program:
