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:

  • Achieve a satisfactory level in French to undertake further study and;
  • Integrate into Québec society (601-014-50 Français intensif pour les étudiants non francophones, 180 hours);
  • Meet the requirements of reading and writing at the college level (601-013-50 Renforcement en français pour les étudiants non francophones, 60 h).
  • This program includes credited courses, sporting, artistic and cultural activities as well as support by a personal tutor.
