Credited Activity

The Summer School is equivalent to a three-credit course. It will consist of 10 days of full-time academic activities, including up to five hours of lectures and one hour of discussion daily, for a total of 51 hours. Poster presentations are also planned.

Students that want to obtain these credits have to pay school fees that vary according to their status on top of the Summer School fees (but they will have a significantly reduced registration fee to the Summer School):

  • UQAM students (case 1)
    UQAM students register the same way they would for any course at UQAM. They might require permission from their directeur de programme, as the ISC800x and ISC900x might not be part of their regular curricula. Bachelor students might also register to the ISC800C, providing they get permission from their directeur de programme.
  • Quebec Inter-University Transfer students (CREPUQ) (case 2)
    Students must complete the Inter-University Transfer (IUT) form available online at www.crepuq.qc.ca. You have to be enrolled in a graduate program at your home university and register to the course ISC900C (for doctoral students), or ISC800C (for master students). Payment of tuition fees have to be completed at your home university.
  • French students (case 3)
    you have to be enrolled in an exchange program CREPUQ-France and validate your registration at your home university. Payment of tuition fees and registration to the ISC900C (for doctoral students), or ISC800C (for master students) have to be completed at your home university.
  • Other students (case 4)
    You have two options:
    • (case 4a) Register with UQAM as an "étudiant libre" (contact our registrariat), then register to the course ISC900C (for doctoral students), or ISC800C (for master students) at UQAM, and make arrangements with your own program so that they will accept these credits. Remember that you will have to pay tuition fees to UQAM on top of the Summer School fees. (but you will have a significantly reduced registration fee to the Summer School)
    • (case 4b) Take arrangements with your own university so that they will evaluate your work and grant you credits. In that case, you have to send us the name and contact information of the professor who will be evaluating your paper . This will allow you to register with the discount fee, but if we haven't be able to contact your university before the beginning of the summer school, you will have to pay the full price to attend to the conferences. Please note that you won't receive any credits from l'UQAM.
    • Rationale: We know that students taking an activity for credits are paying their university to get these credits. We are ready to make a financial effort to help these students, by giving them a high discount. Please, don't ask us if there is “a way” of paying the low fee outside of this situation.
