Check your program requirements

Log in to HEC en ligne > Academic Progress to see which courses you must complete to meet your program requirements. Note: Do not consult the structure of your program via the Programs menu on the website, as it is subject to change and is provided for information purposes only.

Waiting list

You would like to enroll in a course, but it’s already full? You can enter your name on the waiting list and you may attend the class, but a place will not be reserved for you.

  • If a place comes open before the enrollment deadline indicated in HEC en ligne, you will be notified by email that you are enrolled in the course. If you are already enrolled in a course offered at the same times, you need first to cancel the conflicting course within 72 hours, in order to keep your place on the waiting list.
  • In the event no place becomes available before the enrollment deadline indicated in HEC en ligne, your place on the waiting list for the course will automatically be removed from your schedule. You will then receive an email informing you that you are no longer signed up for the course and are therefore unable to access this course in ZoneCours.
  • If you would like to cancel a course on the waiting list, you need to do so within the prescribed timeframe. No change fees will be applied.
  • To find out the maximum number of credits you can add to the waitlist each term, check out the table below.
    • Waitlisted credits are counted as part of the maximum number of credits you can enrol for during each term.
    • For Master of Science (MSc) and Doctoral (PhD) programs, credits for thesis/dissertation and research activities are not counted as part of the maximum number of credits presented in this table.
