Language placement

English placement

All diploma programs include four English courses. Depending on your previous studies in English, you may need to take a written, one-hour placement test to determine if you need a preparation course before the first Introduction to College English Course.

You will be contacted about an English placement test if:

  • you studied in an English high school in Quebec and have a secondary 5 English grade below 66%, or
  • you studied in a French high school in Quebec and took secondary 5 Basic English as a second language, or
  • you studied in a French high school in Quebec and took secondary 5 Enriched English as a second language and have a grade below 75%, or
  • you studied in Canada in an English high school outside of Quebec and your grade in English is below 66%, or
  • you studied outside of Canada 

French placement

Every diploma program includes two French courses. Streaming in your first French course is based on your previous studies in French and is assessed by the Language Department. No placement test is required.

If you do not have previous studies in French, you will be required to take a preparation course.

The English and French preparation courses are available in the Summer and Fall semesters, but taking the course in the Summer allows students to stay on track for their program and graduation timeline.


To make sure you start off right, you should attend the New Student Orientation session in August (before classes start). This is your chance to get to know staff and students, buy your books, find your locker, set up your computer accounts, ask all your questions, and have fun. Look out for your invitation on Omnivox.

When you set up your Omnivox account, you will be directed to create your digital card. If you need a physical card or technical support, Computer Services can help you.

Student Guide to CEGEP

English Colleges’ Survival Guide to Online Learning

This guide is the combined effort of eight English Colleges: Champlain Lennoxville, Champlain St. Lambert, Champlain St. Lawrence, Dawson College, Heritage College, John Abbott College, Marianopolis College, and Vanier College.

In the Winter 2020 semester, we had to pivot to remote emergency online learning. We decided to work together to help everyone to prepare for the coming semester. This guide allows students to self-assess their readiness for college success and  keep the resources for reference to help them along the way. Students, by consulting each section, you have the opportunity to reflect, learn new strategies, find helpful information, and get an overview of your college’s resources.

This guide can also be found in the Community group of Registrar Services, on Omnivox
