Apply to Graduate

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 (go to Student Records > Apply for Graduation for Your Primary Curriculum.) 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 undergraduate degree. For more information see Graduation. The minimum CGPA required to graduate is 2.00, and you must be in Satisfactory Standing.

The Application for Graduation is available on Minerva when you register for your final year (e.g. U3 or U4), 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/students/graduation/applying.

Once you apply to graduate, you are authorizing the University to include your name in the Convocation program. If you want your name to be omitted from this publication you must send an email to Enrolment Services at studentrecords [at] mcgill [dot] ca by March 15 for Spring convocation, and September 15 for Fall convocation.
