Cégep will now enrol Aboriginal students without high school diploma

May 4, 2016

Members of the Lac Simon Anishnabe Nation in Quebec can now apply for admission to the Val-d'Or campus of Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue, regardless of whether they have completed high school or not. The new enrolment requirements were approved by QC’s education ministry and are designed to encourage Aboriginal learners to continue their education. Students who are missing 10 units or less from their secondary level requirements will be able to complete courses towards their high school diploma while attending the Cégep and transitioning to postsecondary studies.
