Welcome to the Faculty of Education!
Get started here:
- Orientation Week (also known as “Frosh Week”), is a week-long, campus-wide series of events to welcome and inform new students which will start on August 25, 2014.
All students are required to seek academic advising about their programs from the department in which they study: For advising dates/contact information as well as course selection and registration information for new students, please refer to the Faculty of Education section on the Newly Admitted Undergraduate Students website. Students should also refer to the detailed information available from their department (links below).
Regulations Concerning Withdrawals
- A course withdrawal means you have chosen to discontinue one or more courses.
- A University withdrawal means you have chosen to discontinue your entire term or year of studies.
- Students who drop their last Fall or Winter course by the end of the add/drop period of that term are considered withdrawn from the University.
Students currently registered in a degree at McGill (and who will not be graduating), can apply to transfer to a different faculty degree program.
Student Rights and Responsibilities
The Handbook on Student Rights and Responsibilities is the official souce of information about your personal and academic rights and responibilities.
As a McGill student, you are responsible for knowing the rules and regulations concerning academic honesty.
Perhaps more important, it is also your responsibility to help maintain the academic integrity of the University.
- Q: I am thinking about coming to McGill.
Is there anyone I can speak to?
- Q: Where can I find information on applying to McGill University?
- Q: I am interested in applying to McGill for the January session.
I was told, however, that the Faculty of Education does not accept applications for the Winter term.
Can I take a few classes in January?
Students whose highest level of education is high school are admitted into Year 0 (U0), the Freshman Year.
The Freshman (U0) year is followed by Year 1 (U1) when you will take the Year 1 courses for your Bachelor of Education program, or the Year 1 courses for the Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology).
Students who have completed courses at another accredited university/college or who have written AP, IB, A level, or French Baccalaureate examinations may be eligible for transfer credits which can be counted towards a McGill degree.
- Academic Standing is primarily based on the student’s grade point average.
