Registration periods

The registration help videos and the registration help guide are essential tools for registering, adding or searching a course.

  1. Registration periods are specified in the academic calendar.
  2. A few days before a period begins, check HEC en ligne  for the date and the time at which the system will allow you to register.
  3. Under "Registration dates", click "My registration period".
You must meet all stated conditions prior to the registration period for the term following your admission to the program; otherwise you will be denied access to HEC en ligne.


You are responsible for managing your program of study. You will receive your degree only if you have met all requirements for your program, including the required number of credits for compulsory and elective courses.

Check your course schedule and student record by visiting HEC en ligne.

Note that your exams may not necessarily take place on the same day as your regularly scheduled classes.

Choose your courses for the term in question only :

  • Not all courses are offered every term. 
  • Every year in late May, HEC Montréal publishes the course schedules for the next three terms. When choosing your courses, take into account the courses available in those three terms.
  • For a description of a given course, go to Zone cours.
Change fee may apply for section change or course cancellation. For more information, see your HEC en ligne during the registration period.
