McGill University Basic Math and Sciences Equivalence Table


This table should be used as a guideline only. The University reserves the right to make revisions to this table without prior notice.

Credit and exemption may be granted for equivalent course work with a grade of C or better, at the discretion of the University. Exemption may be granted without credit.

The equivalents listed on this table are based on courses which have been previously assessed for transfer to McGill. If a course is not listed, it does not necessarily indicate transfer credit will not be given (see “What to do…" below).

If a course was evaluated over 5 years ago, the information may be out of date, and any request for transfer credit will require a re-evaluation of the course.

In most cases, the Admissions Office will calculate and assign advanced standing credit only after receipt of confirmation of the student’s intended program, and after receipt of payment of the required deposit. Credit and/or exemption will not be awarded until official final results are received. Any credits and/or exemptions outstanding after October (for fall admission) will normally be handled by the Student Affairs Office of the student’s Faculty or School.

What to do if your course or institution is not found in this table or if it was evaluated more than five years ago.

The procedure for assessment of transfer credit by Faculty Student Affairs Offices requires the following:

  • Student copy of transcript confirming completion of the course with a grade of ‘C’ or better.
  • The course outline and a copy of the course syllabus.
  • Faculty course approval form.*

Bring the documentation indicated above to the appropriate departmental adviser or other designated staff member for evaluation.

*Students should check their Faculty web site or visit their Student Affairs Office to obtain the appropriate course approval form and for information specific to their faculty.
