Diploma Issuance Process

File Analysis

Each administrative office analyzes student files when all grades have been calculated for the term in question.

  • Fall term: late February
  • Winter term: early July
  • Summer term: late August

You are not required to provide any documents before your diploma or microprogram certificate can be issued.

Processing Times

Proof of graduation letter

You will receive your proof of graduation letter in HEC en ligne if you meet all the graduation requirements and your file has been analyzed. You will then receive an email from your program’s administrative office, and the term in which you earned your degree will appear on your transcripts.

Diploma and attestation

You will receive your diploma or attestation about six months after completing your studies, at the mailing address in your HEC en ligne account. In the meantime, you may request a proof of graduation letter.

You must complete the Duplicate Diploma Form and then sign it in the presence of a commissioner for oaths. After that, you must mail it or bring it in person to the Zone Info, along with a certified cheque or money order payable to HEC Montréal (see the Administrative fees section).

You will receive your duplicate diploma within six weeks.
