About French Baccalaureate transfer credit

Transfer credit is granted for the French Baccalaureate that has been earned in the "première groupe" in the written examinations of Séries L (Littéraire), Séries ES (Économique et sociale) or Séries S (Scientifique). Specific exemptions are normally only granted for courses in Séries S with grades of "10" or better, subject to faculty and program requirements.

Students can receive up to 30 credits, subject to your faculty and program rules. McGill reserves the right to change transfer credit recognition policy without notice.

Courses that qualify

Use the chart below to see if you have passed a course that is equivalent to a McGill course. If so, you may be exempt from that McGill course in accordance with faculty policy. If you receive an exemption for a course but take it anyway, you will not receive McGill credit for it.
