Freshman Course Selection

Below you will find links to the complete list of required Freshman courses for the various Macdonald Campus undergraduate degrees; note that for most students, this is the standard full-time set of courses in freshman year. It is certainly not advisable to take any additional courses beyond what appears in this list, as these courses already constitute a full load.

AP credits, transfer credits and such, are dependent upon the receipt of the appropriate documentation; such credits are normally determined by the beginning of the fall semester, and are reflected in your Minerva record. Until such time, you should register for the standard set of courses listed below. In any case, time blocks are set aside during Orientation week when you may speak with your with your freshmanadvisor [dot] macdonaldatmcgill [dot] ca (Freshman Program Advisor) before finalizing your course choices.)
