    Cegep de Rimouski is a public higher education institution distinguished by its dynamism and excellence in training offered. Established in1968 by the combination of three institutions namely; the Cégep de Rimouski, the Institut maritime du Québec (Quebec Maritime Institute) and the Center matapédien d'études collégiales, the school is regarded as an important player in regional development as it offers 27 pre-university and technical study programs in various fields to 2,200 students and several other continuing education services to more than 7,000 people. 

    The Cégep (College of General and Professional Education) is the first level of higher education in Quebec, the second being the university. CEGEPs offer two types of programs: graduate technical programs that are initially designed for the labor market, although they also provide access to university, and pre-university programs that prepare for university studies. Both types of programs lead to a college degree (DEC).

    The CEGEPs in Quebec provide a common platform to ease the process of multiple applications for admission. This institution is known as SRACQ or Service regional d’admission au collegial de Quebec.
