18. The Government shall establish, by regulation, the College Education Regulations.
The College Education Regulations shall pertain to the general organizational framework of college education, in particular as regards the admission and registration of students, programs of studies, the evaluation of learning achievement and the certification of studies, and may determine the respective powers and duties of the Minister and of colleges in such matters.
The College Education Regulations may, in particular,
(a)   confer on the Minister the responsibility of establishing, within the scope of the College Education Regulations, the programs of studies leading to the Diploma of College Studies and the number of credits allotted to each program; the College Education Regulations may, however, confer on colleges the responsibility of determining certain elements of these programs;
(b)  authorize the Minister, with or without conditions, to recognize programs of studies other than those he establishes within the scope of the College Education Regulations as programs leading to the Diploma of College Studies;
(c)  provide that programs of technical studies leading to an Attestation of College Studies awarded by a college may be established by the college and, for that purpose, determine the cases in which the Minister’s authorization is not required for the implementation of such institutional programs and the cases in which authorization may be subject to conditions;
(d)  confer on colleges the responsibility of evaluating learning achievement, subject to what is otherwise provided in the College Education Regulations, particularly in relation to the power of the Minister to impose uniform examinations;
(e)  provide that the Minister may delegate to a college, on the conditions he determines and on the recommendation of the Commission d’évaluation de l’enseignement collégial, all or part of his responsibility under the College Education Regulations in the matter of certification of studies;
(f)  provide that the final date after which a student may not abandon a course without a failing mark being entered in his record shall be determined by the Minister;
(g)  authorize colleges, with or without conditions, to recognize equivalences or grant a student course exemptions or substitutions;
(h)  provide that the Minister may determine remedial activities which may be rendered compulsory by a college.
Every draft regulation under this section shall be submitted to the Conseil supérieur de l’éducation for examination.
The Minister may establish conditions for the application of the College Education Regulations. Such conditions may include measures permitting the gradual application of the College Education Regulations.
