    Omnivox is the main communication tool at the college. It allows you to access your student portal and college services. It is through this application that you will be able, to access your internal messaging account (MIO), confirm your courses, pay your registration fees and access your timetable. 

    You must connect to Omnivox using Microsoft Edge.


    Dates to confirm your registration and confirm your course selection: 

               First round: From April 4, 6 a.m. to April 19, 2024, at 11:59pm.* 

               Second round: From May 10th 6 a.m. to May 24, 2024, at 11:59 pm* 

               Third round: From June 13 6:00 am to June 26, 2024, at 11:59 pm.

    * Failure to complete this step by the specified dates will result in the cancellation of your admission offer. 

    • Go to Omnivox  
    • In the Omnivox Services section, select ‘Course Selection’. 
    • Read the instructions carefully and select from the courses listed, unless otherwise indicated 
    • Enter your password and click submit 
    • Keep your confirmation number as proof of your course selection confirmation

    If you do not receive a confirmation number, this means that your course selection was not saved and you have not completed the registration process.



    After confirming your course selection, your semester registration fees will be applied to your Omnivox account. 

    Registration fees must be paid by the following deadlines:

               First round: From April 4 6 am to April 19, 2024, at 11:59pm.* 

               Second round: From May 10 6 am to May 24, 2024, at 11:59 pm* 

               Third round: From June 13 6 am to June 26, at 11:59 pm.

    * Failure to complete this step by the specified dates will result in the cancellation of your admission offer. 

    Payment methods:

    On Omnivox: credit card or Visa debit.

    In person: Interac, certified cheque or money order at Student Services (Room B106), Monday to Friday, 8-4:30 

    Please note: If you have not yet paid your registration fees and your balance is at $0, this means that your course selection has not yet been made for the next semester.


    Please note, additional course fees may be added and must be paid before you access your schedule on Omnivox. This can be done through your statement of account on Omnivox. 

    Course specific fees are material and course specific fees required for specific courses, such as a physical education manual, a lab coat cleaning fee, etc. These fees are typically added a few days before the schedules are released to students. When you complete your course selection, courses with additional fees are identified with a dollar sign ($). 


    Schedules are available as of August 8, 2024. All students must access their schedules  before the August 20, 2024. Schedules that have not been accessed will be cancelled after this date.

    Unable to access your schedule: In the event of a problem, you must contact the Registrar Office before the first day of class in order to resolve the issue causing the block on your schedule, otherwise your schedule will be canceled. 

    Cancellation — if not accessed: 

    A schedule cancellation constitutes a cancellation of your semester record which means you are no longer registered at the college and your place will be given to another person pending a response to their admission request. If you wish to re-register later, a new schedule can be generated only if there is sufficient space in the college and/or your original program. A 25$ late schedule rebuild fee will apply. 

    In the event of unforeseen circumstances, the Cégep reserves the right to modify  course schedules after students have accessed their schedule. We recommend that you consult your schedule regularly in the first couple of day of the semester  to ensure no changes have occurred. We also ask that you wait until the semester has started before confirming your work schedules or extracurricular activities. 

    Messages and notifications: It is important to check if there are any messages on your schedule and to follow-up with them. You could have a fee to pay or a message from your academic advisor that requires an action on your part. 


    Attention: if you require learning accommodation, and or if you had an individualized educational plan (IEP) in high school, it will not automatically be transferred to the College, you must register with AccessAbility services.
    Contact our Adapted Measures Counselor as soon as possible at AccessAbility@cegep-heritage.qc.ca
    In addition to these steps, we encourage you to take part in our student orientation session in August before the school starts.
    A MIO will be sent to you with all the details to register. Make sure to check them regularly!

  • Complete the summer school registration form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@cegep-heritage.qc.ca before the registration deadline indicated on the form.

  • Remedial courses are run based on sufficient enrollment.  

Language placement

English placement

All diploma programs include four English courses. Depending on your previous studies in English, you may need to take a written, one-hour placement test to determine if you need a preparation course before the first Introduction to College English Course.

You will be contacted about an English placement test if:

  • you studied in an English high school in Quebec and have a secondary 5 English grade below 60%, or 
  • you studied in a French high school in Quebec and took secondary 5 Basic English as a second language and have a grade below 90%, or 
  • you studied in a French high school in Quebec and took secondary 5 Enriched English as a second language and have a grade below 70%, or 
  • you studied in Canada in an English high school outside of Quebec and your grade in English is below 60%, or 
  • you studied outside of Canada  

French placement

Streaming in your first French course is based on your previous studies in French and is assessed by the Modern Language Department. No placement test is required. 

If you do not have previous studies in French, you will be required to take a preparation course.

The English and French preparation courses are available in the Summer and Fall semesters, but taking the course in the Summer allows students to stay on track for their program and graduation timeline.

English Colleges’ Survival Guide to Online Learning

This guide is the combined effort of eight English Colleges: Champlain Lennoxville, Champlain St. Lambert, Champlain St. Lawrence, Dawson College, Heritage College, John Abbott College, Marianopolis College, and Vanier College. 

In the Winter 2020 semester, we had to pivot to remote emergency online learning. We decided to work together to help everyone to prepare for the coming semester. This guide allows students to self-assess their readiness for college success and keep the resources for reference to help them along the way. Students, by consulting each section, you have the opportunity to reflect, learn new strategies, find helpful information, and get an overview of your college’s resources. 

This guide can also be found in the Community group of Registrar Services, on Omnivox.
