Entrance Requirements

The basic entrance requirement for admission to Marianopolis College is the Quebec Diploma of Secondary Studies (Diplôme d’études secondaire) or its equivalent, including:

  • Secondary V Language of Instruction (English or Français)
  • Secondary V Second Language (French, Second Language or Anglais, langue seconde)
  • Secondary IV Mathematics
  • Secondary IV Science and Technology or Secondary IV Technological and Scientific Applications
  • Secondary IV History and Citizenship Education

Students from French system schools in Montréal, Collège international Marie de France et Collège Stanislas, must be completing their Seconde class level and any required program prerequisite complement courses. They must submit the equivalence letter from the Quebec Ministry of Education as well as successfully pass the Québec Histoire-éducation citoyenneté course.

Below are the specific entrance requirements for each of our pre-university programs. Due to the limited space at the College and the large number of applications we receive each year, we cannot accept every applicant who meets the minimum admissions requirements. The list below shows the minimum averages and grades of students who have been admitted to the various programs offered at Marianopolis.
