The Quebec Inter-University Transfer (IUT) agreement permits concurrent
registration at McGill and another Quebec institution.
If you are a regular McGill undergraduate or graduate degree, diploma, or certificate student, you may register, with your faculty's permission, at any Quebec university for three, or in some cases six,
credits per term in addition to your registration at McGill. You may also obtain permission to complete a full term (i.e., 12 to 15 credits) at another Quebec university. These courses,
subject to faculty regulations, will be recognized by McGill for the degree
that you are registered for, up to the limit imposed by the residency
requirements of the program. Normally, you must complete a minimum residency
requirement of 60 credits at McGill in order to qualify for a McGill degree
(you should check with your faculty). This privilege will be granted if there
are valid academic reasons.
If you want to take advantage of this agreement, consult your Student
Affairs Office for details. Note that this agreement is subject to the
The Quebec universities
concerned may, at their discretion, refuse the registration of a student for
any of their courses.
You must complete your
faculty and program requirements.
You are responsible for
ensuring that the McGill Class Schedule permits you to take these courses
The Quebec universities concerned
are not responsible for special arrangements in cases of examination or class
Grades earned at the host
university will not be included in your McGill grade point averages (GPA) or show on your McGill transcripts.
If you are attending McGill
as an Exchange student from outside Quebec, you are not eligible to take
courses at another Quebec institution through the IUT agreement.
Any grades received late from host universities may delay your graduation.
If you are a scholarship holder, you should consult with your Student
Affairs Office and the scholarships coordinator concerning eligibility for
continuation or renewal of your award(s).
You must initiate an online Quebec Inter-University Transfer (IUT)
application to request the required authorizations at
www.mcgill.ca/students/transfercredit/current/iut. You may find additional
information posted on your faculty website.
Note: Once the Quebec Inter-University Transfer (IUT) application is
approved by both the home and host universities, you must register in the
course that was approved. The method of registration
of the host university will vary (e.g., web, in-person, phone, etc.).
You must allow sufficient time to complete and submit your electronic
application, because you are responsible for adhering to all the host
university's registration deadlines. If you decide later to drop or
withdraw from the approved course(s), you will need to
drop or withdraw from the course using the host university's registration
method AND submit this change on the online Quebec Inter-University Transfer
The host institution will automatically submit your grades to McGill for any completed courses.
Note for the Faculties of Arts and Science (including B.A. & Sc.): If you participate in any type of study away or exchange (including Quebec Inter-University Transfer) during your final (U3) term—even if you are taking only one course outside of McGill—you will not be able to graduate by the end of this final term and must change your graduation to the following term.
