Applicants from other CEGEPs

Applicants wishing to transfer from another CEGEP must demonstrate acceptable standing in their present studies and must satisfy all entrance prerequisites necessary for each desired program of study at Marianopolis College. Advanced credit is not guaranteed.

    Program Specific Requirements

    In addition to the minimum entrance requirements listed above, some programs offered at Marianopolis have specific high school course prerequisites for admissions and additional application requirements.

    Application Deadline

    Fall admission – MARCH 1 
    Winter admission – NOVEMBER 1

    Applying to the College

    Students can apply directly online by completing an online application through Omnivox.

    Students who have attended a high school in Quebec, will need to send to the Admissions Office after submitting an application:

    • A clear copy of your official birth certificate (with both parents’ names indicated)
    • An official translation of your birth certificate in English or French (if required)
    • An official copy of your final secondary school record
    • An official copy of your academic record in CEGEP
    • The Interim Record of Evaluation Form completed by each of your CEGEP professors
    • A letter explaining your motivation to transfer to Marianopolis College

    Late Applications

    Applications received with a time-stamp after 11:59 p.m. on the deadline date will be considered only after all regular applications have been reviewed, if at all, and only if space is still available within the College.

    Proficiency in English

    Students who are deemed lacking a sufficient knowledge of English may be required to take remedial or reinforcement courses and to follow a reduced course load. 

    Students who have not studied in English as the primary language of instruction for a minimum of three years, may be required to submit results from TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or another recognized language-proficiency test or write an English Placement Test at the College. 

    For more information on the courses and services available to students requiring English language support, please visit the Plan for Success page of our website.

    French Requirement

    Current regulations stipulate that all students must take two French courses in order to complete CEGEP Diploma requirements. All applicants must have completed Secondary V or equivalent level French. French placement at Marianopolis is based on Secondary IV and V high school grades for Français langue seconde and Français langue maternelle. If the grade information is incomplete, you will be required to write a placement test after admission to the College.

    Marianopolis does offer two Remedial French courses if a student does not place at the first level of French.

    Students may be required to follow a reduced course load if it is determined that their French skills are not adequate.

    For more information on the courses and services available to students requiring French language support, please visit the Student Support page of our website.

    Evaluation of Applicants

    The Admissions Committee reviews each application individually, carefully considering the following:

    • The overall average of both final Secondary IV results and Secondary V term results
    • The performance of the student in each program-related and/or prerequisite course
    • The performance of the student in each required English/Anglais course

    Applicants who believe their academic record is not a true indication of their ability should submit an explanatory letter when applying, as well as a copy of all relevant transcripts.

    Though we make every effort to accommodate our applicants, please note that it may not be possible to consider grades and/or letters received after the published deadline.

    Notice of Decision

    As of mid-November or mid-April, notices of conditional acceptance can be found in your Omnivox account under 'Documents and Messages'. Final acceptance is contingent upon successful completion of all entrance requirements, as well as applicable program prerequisites and is automatic once these conditions have been met. 

    Note: All offers of acceptance will be withdrawn from applicants whose file remains incomplete at Marianopolis, or who do not graduate from high school and complete the requirements to enter CEGEP.

    Reminder: It is your responsibility to submit all required documents. An incomplete admission file may result in a delay in the assessment of your file or cancellation. Please write your seven-digit online application number on all supplemental documents.

    What to send in case of extenuating circumstances:
