Registration

 

SOLVING REGISTRATION ISSUES
Anatomy & Cell Biology (ACB) students trying to register for ANAT courses:
  • Please email the undergradadvisor.acb [at] mcgill.ca (ACB program advisor) for assistance

ACB students trying to register for courses in other departments:

  • If you're having difficulty registering for a required course, you can contact the department offering the course for assistance (i.e. for BIOL 200, contact the Dept. of Biology; for PHGY 209, contact the Dept. of Physiology, etc.).
  • Refer to the list of departmental contacts so that you're contacting the right person/unit.
  • Please note that in most departments, registration permits are only given for required  courses, not for electives or complementary courses.

Non-ACB students trying to register in ANAT courses:

  • If the course is required for your program, please email the undergradadvisor.acb [at] mcgill.ca (ACB program advisor) for assistance
  • If the course is a complementary or elective and you're receiving a "Reserve Closed" error message, that means that all the spaces for students in other programs are currently full.  You'll need to keep checking Minerva regularly and throughout the Add/Drop period to see if space opens up. 

**We are not able to give registration permits for complementary or elective courses (this includes ANAT 321)**

Development of a contingency plan to prepare for a possible shutdown of on-campus activities is also required. This plan must be included in the 396 Project Approval Form, and it is mandatory for approval by the course coordinator. The plan must specify how, in case of a mandatory lab shutdown, the ANAT 396 project will be completed, and how the student’s performance will be evaluated.
