The CEGEP academic year

In Quebec’s CEGEPs, the academic year begins around mid-August and ends at the end of May. The academic calendar is usually made up of two semesters:

  • Fall: from mid-August to the end of December
  • Winter: from January to the end of May

Length of your program

The total length of your program of study varies depending on what kind of program it is:

  • Career programs last three years (six semesters)
  • Pre-university programs last two years (four semesters)

However, if you fail a class, you may have to extend the length of your program, since all failed classes must be retaken.
