What else do I need to know?

If you qualify for transfer credit, use McGill's degree evaluation tool to see if it will earn you exemptions for required, complementary or elective courses.

If you feel that you've completed the equivalent of one or more McGill math or science courses but do not have the certification to prove it, you may be eligible to write placement exams in linear algebra, biology, chemistry, math or physics.
