Pre-University Programs

Marianopolis College offers pre-university academic programs that lead to a DEC (Diplôme d’études collégiales).


We offer the following two-year pre-university programs:

We also offer the following Double DEC programs, which allow students to complete the requirements for two DECs in three years:

All programs leading to a DEC have a General Education and a Specific Education component. Both components are composed of specific courses, developed by the College, tied to objectives defined by the  Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES) for each program.

Students must have obtained a passing grade (60%) in each of the courses of the program to obtain a diploma.

MESRS has formulated three additional requirements for obtaining a DEC:

  • Completing successfully the Épreuve Synthèse de Programme (Comprehensive Program Assessment). This assessment is done in the last semester and is defined by the faculty for each program.
  • Completing successfully the English Exit Exam, set and marked by MEESR. This exam is normally taken after completing the first three English courses.

Students applying from the IB-MYP Program automatically receive a 2% bonus in the calculated admission averages.
