Apply to Graduate
Most undergraduate students and non-thesis graduate students (master's, certificates, diplomas) must use Minerva (www.mcgill.ca/minerva) to apply to graduate. It is your responsibility to inform McGill of your intention to graduate. You need a minimum residency requirement of 60 credits at McGill to qualify for a McGill degree. The minimum CGPA required to graduate is 2.00.
The Application for Graduation is available on Minerva when you register for your final year, except if you are in the Faculty of Medicine or Faculty of Dentistry, where you are automatically flagged for graduation in your final year. For more information on how to apply on Minerva, go to www.mcgill.ca/minerva-students/records/graduation.
