Please visit http://www.mcgill.ca/newstudents/facultyprograminfo for program advising, course registration and other essential information for your program of study.

Transfer students

Transfer students should be sure to take advantage of an information session designed specifically for them. Staff from the First-Year Office and Student Services will discuss the support services available to transfer students and address questions or concerns. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet other new transfer students. Refer to the Orientation site for information and online registration.




Francophone students

The First-Year Assistant for Francophone Students is an important resource person for McGill students whose first language is French, helping them adjust to studying in a second language. You are invited to attend a welcome session highlighting useful information for francophone students.

For more information, visit Étudiants francophones or call the First-Year Office.

Mature students

Have you been in the working world before returning to university? Are you 23 or older? The First-Year Office and the Mature and Re-entry Students’ Association offer academic and study skills workshops to help you adjust to the demands of university.

Plan to attend a free, two-day workshop on August 30 and 31, 2012 that will provide techniques to improve reading efficiency, note-taking skills, and writing of papers, as well as preparation for exams. You’ll also get to meet other mature/re-entry students.

Students with disabilities

A variety of services are available to ensure that you can pursue a successful academic life at McGill. To make sure you have access to these services at the beginning of term, you should contact the Office for Students with Disabilities as soon as you receive your offer of admission.

If you intend to submit a learning disability or ADHD assessment in order to establish your eligibility for service, please send this to the office as early as possible to allow us to determine whether it meets McGill’s documentation requirements.
