- I am a student from outside of Quebec. How do I know which of my courses can be credited for first year courses at McGill University?
You must attend the Transfer Credit Information Session to determine if you can receive exemptions from any of the first year courses. More information about this session can be found in the Welcome Booklet. See Credits
- How do I submit my AP scores?
In most cases, advanced standing credit is calculated and assigned only after you have confirmed which program you will enter at McGill University and after official results of prior work have been received at McGill. University work must be supported by Calendar course descriptions. Enrolment Services will initiate the calculation of advanced standing credit following receipt of confirmation and payment of your required deposit. After registration, the Enrolment Services Office, Faculty or School may award further advanced standing credit.
You have the option of declaring or not declaring results of Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations at the time of application. Accordingly, the admission decision may take AP results into consideration. In any event, AP Examination results with a score of 4 or 5 must be declared at the time of initial registration at the University. Each faculty's policy will determine whether advanced standing credit and/or exemption from certain courses will be granted on the basis of AP results. See AP Scores
- What type of course descriptions do I need to submit?
They must be detailed course descriptions that are found in the school’s official website or calendar. They must include the amount of contact hours (i.e. amount of lecture, tutorial, and laboratory hours per week). See Descriptions
