Attestation of College Studies (ACS)

The ACS programs are college-level programs focused on the acquisition of skills. They are intended for adults and taken through the continuing education division in CEGEPS with the objective of helping students enter the job market, change jobs or advance their careers.

These programs, which are developed by CEGEPs rather than the Ministère, vary in duration and can be started any time of year. Moreover, they offer a great deal of flexibility. Studies can be done full time or part time, during the day, in the evening or on weekends, in person or remotely, and can be free or cost-based, depending on the situation.  

Information regarding ACSs is published on CEGEP websites and provided during preparatory information sessions.
