Planing your course of studies
Correcting your personal 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.
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.
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:
Failing this, your name will remain as it is currently in HEC en ligne.
