- Language courses are included in DEC programs as it is a ministerial requirement for graduation. They are particularly important in order to prepare for the Uniform French Exam or the English Exit Exam. Please note that failing the exam will prevent you from obtaining your DEC diploma. This is why it is important to follow and pass the sequence of language courses planned by the College, which is different for each student and depends on the result of your placement test.
1. I am not satisfied with one of my exam results. What can I do?
- It is possible to request a grade revision. You can complete your Omnivox online application form in the My Forms section. The grade revision may be requested at the latest on the Friday preceding the beginning of the next semester.

Can I use a chosen first name in my interactions at the College?
Yes! To simplify our students’ interactions in their daily college activities, any LaSalle College student can request a chosen name.
This name will be prioritized in all College communications and interactions as well as in unofficial documents, while the legal first name will be used in official documents and government procedures.
For more information on this topic and to open a chosen first name application, our students must refer to the Frist name chosen or gender modification section.
Can I apply for a change of gender designation?
Yes, if the gender designation requested is the same as the gender designation indicated in the student’s official documents, such as a birth certificate or vital statistics document.
As is the case in any government document, the student can choose from the following three genders: “Male,” “Female” and “Non-binary.”
For more information on this topic and to open a change of gender designation application, our students must refer to the Frist name chosen or gender modification section.
