Summer Term/Summer Studies

McGill Summer Studies offers over 300 credit courses in various disciplines. Courses begin in either May, June, or July and are usually one-month intensive. These courses may be accepted for transfer credit by other universities. For more details, consult Programs, Courses and University Regulations > Faculties & Schools > Summer Studies at or contact the Summer Studies Office at 514-398-5212.

If you take a McGill summer course to complete your graduation requirements, you will receive your degree at the Fall Convocation (normally held in November).

It is your responsibility to follow the University and faculty regulations. When registering, you must not exceed the maximum credits permitted by your faculty.

You cannot register for more than 12 credits (Management or Music students, 18 credits) during the summer, at McGill or at other universities, except by special permission of your Associate Dean or Director.

Please note that because the schedule of the courses is very intensive, two courses in one term is a very heavy load. To register for more than one course (or more than two courses in Arts, Education, Engineering, Management, and Science), McGill students must obtain written permission from their faculty, Visiting Students from both their home university and the faculty in which they are registered, and Special Students from the faculty in which they are registered.

Quebec Inter-University Transfer (IUT) students may take, in one summer term, a maximum of one course regardless of credit weight. Permission to register for more than one course per term must be obtained from the McGill faculty in which the student is registering by using the CREPUQ electronic IUT site at (see Quebec Inter-University Transfer Agreement: Visiting IUT Students).
