The college traces its origins to the merger of several institutions which became public ones in 1967, when the Quebec system of CEGEPs was created.
The 10 acre campus includes 6 academic pavilions, academic laboratories, a sport centre (le Cap), a theatre (Alfred-Des Rochers), a residence, and plenty of green space. An agricultural centre is located in Coaticook.
The college offers two types of programs: pre-university and technical. The pre-university programs, which take two years to complete, cover the subject matters which roughly correspond to the additional year of high school given elsewhere in Canada in preparation for a chosen field in university. The technical programs, which take three years to complete, applies to students who wish to be career-ready; however, many students choose to pursue a university degree. In addition, the Continuing Education Centre offers a wide variety of credit courses and programs with flexible scheduling.
