The Summer term at McGill covers the months of May to August. During that period a wide array of credit courses from McGill degree programs is offered. Most are month-long courses with lectures every day. These courses are usually accepted for transfer credit by other universities. For more details, consult the Summer Studies website.
Students taking Summer Studies courses to complete their graduation requirements at McGill will receive their degrees at the Fall Convocation (normally held in November).
It is the student's responsibility to follow the University and faculty regulations. When registering, students must not exceed the maximum credits permitted by their faculty.
Students registering under the Quebec Inter-University Transfer Agreement (IUT) are limited to 6 credits.
