Student Services organizes a convocation ceremony every year. You will receive an invitation for your program, if applicable. At the ceremony, you will receive an official letter of congratulations on completing your program.
You will receive your official diploma about five months after completing your studies. It will be sent to the mailing address in your HEC en ligne account.
In the meantime, you may request an attestation of completion of studies. Such attestations are issued on preset dates.
If you are completing your PhD, once you have defended your thesis, you can write to your academic office to obtain a letter confirming that you have met all the program requirements. One month after submitting the final version of your thesis, you can request an attestation of completion of studies.
If you have completed a short undergraduate or short graduate program, you will receive your attestation of studies a few weeks after completing your studies.
To obtain a duplicate diploma, you must complete and sign the appropriate form and then take it to a commissioner for oaths. Mail it or bring it to the Registrar’s Office, along with a certified cheque or money order payable to HEC Montréal (see the “Administrative fees” section for the amount).
You will receive your duplicate diploma within six weeks.
You can find a commissioner for oaths through the HEC Montréal Registrar's Office (Zone Info), municipal, provincial or federal government organizations, banking institutions and the Justice Québec website.
If you are outside Canada, you will need to have your signature or the document legally authenticated.
