We’re delighted to have you as one of our new students, and we are genuinely looking forward to welcoming you in person. 

We encourage you to have a look at the guide for new students to find out more about your program and what goes on at the start of the term.

Correcting your personal information

+  Contact information

If your contact information (mailing address, e-mail address or phone number) has changed since you were admitted to HEC Montréal, it is important to update it promptly.  Make any necessary changes online through HEC en ligne.  

+  Name change

Since the Fall 2000 semester, the ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur (MEES) has obliged Quebec universities to obtain a permanent code assigned and validated by the Ministry for each registered student.

The “permanent code” is a code that the province’s ministry of education, the MEES, uses to identify individual students. It consists of four letters followed by eight digits.
e.g. AAAZ11223344
AAA = First 3 letters of the student’s family name
Z = First letter of the student’s given name
11 = Date of birth
22 = Birth month (plus 50 if the student is female)
33 = Last 2 digits of the year of birth
44 = Sequence number assigned by the MEES

If the name appearing in the MEES file differs from the one on record at HEC Montréal, we are required to modify it to bring it in line with the data held by the MEES.

If, while consulting your record on HEC en ligne, you notice that your name has been changed and that you wish to modify it, you will need to provide the following documents:

  • a birth certificate (for students from Quebec or any other Canadian province)
  • a document attesting to your status in Canada (international students)

Failing this, your name will remain as it is currently in HEC en ligne.
