Correction of information appearing on a diploma

You can obtain a new original of your Diploma of College Studies (DCS) incorporating corrected information (i.e. surname, first name) free of charge.

To apply, you must:

  • obtain from the appropriate authority an official document attesting to the changes made (e.g. a change of name certificate issued by the Directeur de l’état civil)
  • present this official document to the college that recommended the awarding of the diploma so that it can input the required changes into the computerized systems
  • make a written request for a reprint of the original diploma, indicating the information to be corrected

You must send the request and the original diploma to the following address:

Direction du soutien aux établissements et de la gouvernance
Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur
