CÉGEPs Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel
CÉGEPs are governed by a separate, specific law. Each institution is administered by a board of directors made up of teachers, students, and community representatives.
There are about 50 public and 21 private subsidized general and vocational colleges. All of these institutions offer two-year pre-university programs and three-year technical programs leading to a Diploma of College Studies (DCS) as well as shorter technical programs leading to an Attestation of College Studies (ACS). A Diploma of College Studies (DCS) is required for admission to university.
