Transcript Information

Academic and other institutions located outside the Province of Quebec may wish to refer to the following information as an aid to interpretation of transcripts issued by CEGEP John Abbott College.

CEGEP John Abbott College is a General and Vocational College referred to as a CEGEP. CEGEPs are governed by the Quebec Ministry of Education’s College Education Regulations (General and Vocational Colleges Act). John Abbott College offers competency based two-year Pre-University Programs as well as three-yearTechnical Programs leading to a Diploma of Collegial Studies (DEC). The language of instruction is English.

Each program is made up of three components:

  • Compulsory General Education subjects common to all CEGEP programs in English, Humanities, Physical Education, French and complementaries.
  • General Education Specific to the Program.
  • Program Specific Concentration Courses directly related to the program field of study.

The Ministry of Education has determined Program Objectives and Standards for each of the above components. The objective codes and the statement of the competency have been indicated on the transcript. The objectives have been broken down into a number of competencies that the student must achieve.

In addition to the above requirements, to obtain a Diploma of Collegial Studies, students are also required to pass the following two examinations:

  • Program Comprehensive Assessment evaluates students’ understanding and achievement of program objectives.
  • Ministerial Examination of Language of Instruction prepared and corrected by the Quebec Ministry of Education.This four-hour examination consists of a minimum 750-word essay in response to one of three readings. Students are expected to demonstrate an understanding of the reading, awareness of how to structure an essay, and the ability to write college-level English. (Students who completed the General Education component in a French language CEGEP may write this exam in French.)

A numerical grading system is used in all Quebec CEGEPs. The pass mark is 60%.

90 100 Excellent IN Medical Incomplete
80 89 VeryGood EC Failure
70 79 Good
60 69 Pass
0 59 Failure


Through the Centre for Continuing Education, we offer intensive Attestation of Collegial Studies Programs (AEC). These programs are specifically designed for adult students. Students in these programs do not take a General Education component.

For additional information, please refer to the Institutional Policy on the Evaluation of Student Achievement (IPESA).
