Registration and choice of courses

It is important to register as soon as possible. Registration is done through the IDÉ academic portal.

For international students not covered by the Régime de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ), registration also activates membership in the group health and hospitalization insurance plan. Students who are covered by the RAMQ must send a copy of their card or letter of eligibility to the person at their centre who is responsible for their student record.


1. You must register for each term until your final thesis submission or graduation. You will receive an email each term containing the necessary information on how to register.

Your registration will be blocked if you have an outstanding balance of $100 or more. If this happens, please contact the Finance Department ( to pay the amount owing or work out a payment plan.

International students will be unable to register if one of the following documents is due to expire before the end of term: CAQ, study permit, RAMQ card (if the student has one).

2. Choose your courses and activities. When you register in the IDÉ academic portal, it is possible to consult the available courses. Course descriptions are also available in the Find a graduate program directory (available in French only). In the program file, see the Courses tab.

3. Update your contact information, if required.

4. Pay your tuition fees as soon as you receive the invoice. Pay by credit card, cheque, or deduction from your scholarship.
