Faculty/School Specific Information (Course Information and Regulations)

All students must comply with the regulations and requirements contained in their Faculty section of this publication.

Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

Students should note that there are no supplemental examinations for Agricultural and Environmental Sciences courses.

Arts

Arts

For Faculty of Arts specific program and course information, refer to:

Term(s) offered (Fall, Winter, Summer) may appear after the course credit weight to indicate when a course would normally be taught.

All courses have limited enrolment. You may register for and take for credit any course, unless otherwise indicated, in the sections of this publication applicable to the Faculties of Arts and of Science, subject to the course restrictions listed in this section.

Since the registration system is unable to verify whether or not Faculty regulations are respected, it is technically possible to register for courses that may not be credited toward your program. When your record is manually verified, however, any courses taken that break the Faculty or degree regulations will be flagged after the end of course change period as “not for credit.” As a result, your expected date of graduation may be delayed.

Some courses may require special permission. You should consult this publication and/or the Class Schedule at www.mcgill.ca/study well in advance of the course change period to determine if permission is required of the instructor, the department, or the Faculty for any course you want to take.

If you believe that you have valid reasons for taking a course that may not be credited toward your program, you must obtain the permission of the Associate Dean or Director.

Education

Education

Some courses will be available in the evenings only, or will be offered during the Summer term.

Students should give particular notice to prerequisite and corequisite courses and registration for Field Experience courses.

Engineering

Engineering

Most courses offered by the Faculty of Engineering, including the School of Architecture, are restricted to Engineering students. Non-Engineering students should obtain permission from a Faculty adviser in the Student Affairs Office, Engineering Student Centre (Frank Dawson Adams Building, Room 22), to register for Engineering courses.

A limited number of School of Architecture (ARCH) courses are open to students not registered in the School. Please refer to individual course descriptions.

The average division of time for a course is indicated in hours in the course listing after the course credit. For example, (3) (3-0-6) indicates a three-credit course consisting of three lecture hours per week, no other contact hours and six hours of personal study per week.

Extra Courses

Extra Courses

Courses that you choose to take outside your program may be classified as extra, provided that you choose this option at the time of registration. The course will be designated as extra ("RX" at the time of registration, and "E" once the course is graded) on your transcript, and the grade earned in that course will not be included in your grade point average (GPA) calculation. This option will not be added to your record after the Course Change (add/drop) deadline. Courses that are taken to satisfy your engineering program requirements or minor requirements cannot be designated as extra.

Prerequisites and Corequisites

Prerequisites and Corequisites

You must ensure that you have completed any course prerequisite(s) and/or corequisite(s) before course registration. If you have registered for a course and did not satisfy the prerequisite(s) and/or corequisite(s), the course may be dropped from your record automatically by Minerva.

If you received advanced credit(s)/exemption(s) or passed a placement exam for a course and are blocked from registration because of a prerequisite or corequisite error, you must go to your department/school in order to receive the appropriate permit override.
