Student Advisor

If you require assistance with your admission, your student file, your courses, or your course schedule, the student advisor is available to help you. One method of ensuring success during your college studies is to gain a good understanding of your program, solidifying your academic project and taking charge of it as soon as possible.

The Student Advisor will assist you for the dura¬tion of your program. Each semester, he will propose a course selection that takes account of your reality. He will also work closely with the teachers who also support your efforts. Your Student Advisor will be happy to answer your questions, to guide you in achieving your aca¬demic goals and clarify your options.

He can help you manage your course of studies and the many obligations you must assume as a student.

You may meet your student advisor to discuss any of the following subjects:

  • Support for academic success

  • Illness
  • Absences from class

The aim of our Financial Aid Office is to offer specific assistance to students who experience financial difficulties during their stay with us. The financial aid advisors inform and advise students regarding the existence of and eligibility criteria for the different financial aid programs available to them. They also advise students on the personal management of their budget, help them to understand and follow the development of their files and accompany them in their dealings with financial aid.

They provide students with the necessary tools for improving their financial and social situation. An interactive telephone service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: 514 864-4505 or you can go to the Web Site at www.afe.gouv.qc.ca

Full-time students (a minimum of 4 courses or 180 hours) can ask for financial aid (loans and bursaries). The financial aid office is located on the ground floor (rooms A113 and A114). Staff can help you with more general questions, but if you require additional information, you can make an appointment with them by contacting the main office at 514 731-2296, ext. 223.
