You will be invited to participate as a full member of the course, write tests and exams. CCE students will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course, but will not receive a grade or transcript.
French Timetable & Registration
Each course offers a number of weekdays and times to choose from. All sessions are on the main McMaster campus in Hamilton, Ontario. Please see the full timetable for details.
Registrations for both the Fall and Winter terms are currently being accepted. To register, please complete the registration form and submit with payment. Click here for details on methods of registration.
