The following is a brief overview of the Masters of Library & Information Studies course selection & registration process.
Newly-accepted MLIS students are sent information prior to their entry term to assist with the course registration process. For comprehensive information and procedures, consult the McGill Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies Registration page. Refer to the MLIS Student Handbook [.pdf] for MLIS-specific registration guidelines and tips.
Course selection & registration
- Make an initial course selection based on the specialization-specific program guides in the MLIS Student Handbook and the MLIS course timetables.
- Follow the guidelines in the MLIS Student Handbook for confirming your selected courses with your advisor and submitting your course selection to to SIS administration for coding in the registration system.
- Register via Minerva, McGill's self-service administrative system.
The "REGN" registration confirmation code is a required administrative code to confirm registration for McGill graduate students. Registration in Minerva of the REGN registration confirmation course is mandatory for all graduate students each term.
Notes: Advisor approval is not required prior to REGN registration. There is no charge associated with registering for the REGN.
Registration dates and deadlines are found on McGill's Important Dates page. To avoid late registration fees, register for at least one course via Minerva before the normal registration period ends. If you will be attending SIS but have not yet selected or received approval for courses, register for the REGN course before the start of the term to confirm you are a student in that term. After advisor approval of selected courses, you can register for additional courses any time up to the deadline for add/drops.
If you are experiencing problems with registration, please contact Kathryn Hubbard, SIS Administrative & Student Affairs Coordinator.
