Yearly
evaluation

The student’s progress takes place at his or her own rhythm based on credits that are successfully completed.
The successful completion of a program is determined each year based on the credits completed by the student.
Professors and lecturers provide an evaluation of a student’s work at one of three levels: good, below average, insufficient.
Each semester, the academic council as well as other professors meet to discuss the progress of each student and to alert students whose over-all work is insufficient.
At the end of each year, the academic council and professors approve the progress of all students and review cases in difficulty.
At the end of each cycle, the academic council meets to approve notes in order to authorize the student’s successful completion of a program.
This decision makes it possible for the student to receive a diploma of the program that he or she has pursued (first or second cycle at the Confluence – post masters or a specific program).
