Students typically enter CEGEP's after 5 years of high school (grades 7-11) at 16-18 years of age. They enter a two-year pre-university program or a three-year technical program. Dawson is situated near the heart of downtown Montreal in a former nunnery that occupies an entire city block. Constructed in 1908, the building was the "mother house" for the Congrégation de Notre Dame and is now designated a heritage building by the city of Montreal. Dawson is the largest college in the provinces 48 college network. It has a subway entrance and is adjacent too a major bike trail into downtown Montreal making it a very accessible location above and below ground.
