Collège de l'Île

Collège de l'Île (formerly Collège Acadie Île-du-Prince-Édouard) is a Francophone post-secondary community college in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island with headquarters in the community of Wellington.[1] It was originally a campus of Collège de l'Acadie which served Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. When the Nova Scotia operations became part of Université Sainte-Anne, its operations in Prince Edward Island were renamed Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É and subsequently Collège de l'Île.

Students may also take French courses at various levels, both face to face or online. There are part-time programmes and classes for adults preparing for higher education or who need basic literacy skills.[2]

Collège de l'Île has recently signed articulation agreements with the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI), similar in nature to the agreements between Holland College and UPEI.[4]
