The college traces its origins to the merger of several institutions which became public ones in 1967, when the Quebec system of CEGEPs was created. In 1970, l'Externat classique d'Alma was renamed le Collège du Lac-Saint-Jean and began delivering pre-university training. In 1972, Collège d'Alma was created on the campus du Collège régional du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. In 1980, the institution became autonomous.
