Registration and Program Information

Start by reviewing:
  1. New student information on the Faculty of Science website
  2. Registration information on the Accepted students page

Read the program-specific information on our website:

  3. Examples of program registration plansPDF icon ACB Program Plans (Updated F2022)
    • Students with advanced standing/course exemptions from required program courses (CHEM 212, CHEM 222, statistics) can choose to take a different program course (for which you will have the prerequisites) or an elective/Minor program course
    • U1 students who need to complete some/all of the Science Foundation Program requirements/prerequisites for the required U1 ACB courses, may need to delay registration in the typical U1 courses until second year. Once you've confirmed with SOUSA which Foundation Program courses you still need to complete and exactly which course exemptions you will receive, you should meet with the ACB program advisor to discuss your registration.
    • U0 students interested in choosing ACB as their program in U1 / U1 students who must complete Science Foundation Program requirements during their first year at McGill take note of the program-specific information found on the SOUSA website.

If you have questions about your advanced standing/courses exemptions, program selection options or general degree-planning, you can contact a Science advisor at SOUSA now at: [at] All BSc students will be assigned a specific Science advisor by the end of June and you'll be able to find their name on the top left of your Unofficial Transcript in Minerva.

Important Notes

  • Activate your official McGill email address, check it regularly, and use this email when contacting offices/people at McGill.
  • Do your best to put together your schedule for both the Fall 2024 and Winter 2025 semesters using the information at the links above and register for as many classes as you can in both semesters when registration opens for you in June (registration dates can be found here).
  • You can make changes to your registration up until the Add/Drop deadline in each semester (Sept. 10 for Fall 2024 and Jan. 14 for Winter 2025), so there is plenty of time to adjust your courses as needed over the summer and once you've had a chance to contact your Science advisor at SOUSA/program advisor and attend an online information session.
