How to read a program grid?

Program grids are made up of all the courses for a specific program. They are usually categorized by semester.

Example:

Exemple de grille de cours d'un programme du cégep

 

Course structure

Every course listed in an academic program includes a weighting made up of three digits separated by a hyphen or space.

Example:

Numéro d’identification du cours Titre du cours Pondération
601-103-MQ Français III : littérature québécoise 3-1-4

 

The first digit stands for the number of classroom hours per week. In this case, the student will have three hours of formal classroom instruction per week.

Pondération
3-1-4

 

The second digit stands for the number of lab hours (in a specialized or multipurpose room) or internship hours per week. The student will thus have one lab hour per week.

Pondération
31-4

 

The third digit stands for the number of personal work hours the student should put in every week for the course. In this case, that is four hours.

Pondération
3-1-4
