Academic Policies

It is important to update your academic file to keep moving towards earning a diploma or certificate. Here are a few basic regulations to help you manage your academic file.

Important Dates

Boréal’s academic calendar is an important tool to help you keep track of dates and deadlines during the academic year. It is the student’s responsibility to meet the college’s set deadlines.

Guide Boréal

Boréal’s student guide is an important official document that describes the college’s policies and administrative procedures, student rights and responsibilities, and services offered.

Full-time Students

To be considered a full-time student, you must be registered for more than 70% of course hours or 66% of the course program.

Part-time Students

If you are registered for less than 70% of course hours or 66% of the course program, you will be considered as a part-time student. Part-time students do not have access to the same financial aid options as full-time students. They cannot participate in intercollegiate sports (in Sudbury) or access certain facilities free of charge (i.e. the Sports Centre in Sudbury).


Log on to Mon Boréal and update your contact information or contact the Admissions Office and Registrar. This is extremely important in case of emergency.
