Information to Students Regarding the Revised Academic Calendar Adopted 19 November 2015
A revised calendar has been adopted by the Board of Governors of the CEGEP Heritage College on 19 November 2015. This revision was required because of the lost teaching hours on the three strike days (October 26, November 9 and 10) as well as the half day lost during the evacuation on October 28.
Currently, the revised Academic Calendar does not change the previously released examination schedule from December 11 to 21 inclusively. Remember to listen carefully to your teacher’s instructions and changes to the course material and evaluations, and always verify your online Omnivox schedule.
The Evacuation Day:
December 10 will count as a Wednesday schedule in the afternoon only, so as to recuperate the lost class time on the day of the evacuation, Wednesday October 28.
Regular Education classes usually scheduled on Wednesday afternoons after 1 pm are expected to take place on this date.Regular Education classes usually scheduled on Wednesday afternoons after 1 pm are expected to take place on this date.
For Continuing Education classes, your teacher will notify you.
The Strike Days:
As for strike days, the recuperation days agreed upon with an entente are several Saturdays. It was understood between the faculty (HFA) and the College that:
Class time needs to be recuperated in hours, and not by a compression of material;
Some teachers have begun recuperating class material for their students, and others will do so very soon;
Learning activities happen in different ways, in and out of a classroom environment;
Students will receive information about the recuperated class hours by their teachers;
Class time may be rescheduled in a designated room, time and place, and therefore students would be available on a Monday to Friday schedule, unless there is a conflict with another learning activity, at which point, an accommodation would be required.
If you have any questions, please address them to your teacher who will be making the arrangements for their courses. The College expects that you will be given sufficient advanced notice.
All the best on your final assignments for this semester!

Message from the Heritage College Student Association
Here’s some general information about the recent circumstances in relation to the threats being made to schools across Quebec. It is important to keep in mind that Heritage is working closely with the police in order to ensure that classes are able to continue as usual while maintaining the safety of all students, which remains the number one priority of the College.
You may have heard, or read from the letter traveling around Facebook, that threats were being directly made about tomorrow, Thursday, the 5th of November. For now, the instructions are for business to continue as usual. The first sign of any specific or compelling threat to the College will result in the appropriate course of action.
It would be wise for students to take into consideration the recent events’ impact on the academic calendar. With the strike and various precautionary evacuations being made, there is very high probability that these school days will need to be made up at some point. As such, the College is advising caution to all students in relation to plans for the holidays. If possible, avoid making any concrete decisions until more information about the changes in calendar is made public. No one wishes for classes or exams to extend into the holiday season, and your patience and understanding remain infinitely appreciated during this complicated period of time.
Keep in mind that counseling is available for any students that may be experience an increase in stress. Contact Student Services for more details.
