January Admission (Winter session)

January Admission 2020

Generally speaking, McGill does not admit undergraduate students in January (Winter semester). When space and program structure permit, the following individuals may be considered for some programs:

  • Individuals (regardless of citizenship) currently studying in CEGEP in Quebec and completing their DEC requirements by December, or individuals who have obtained the CEGEP DEC and have not undertaken subsequent study elsewhere.
  • Individuals (regardless of citizenship) who will have a McGill degree at the time of entry and who have not undertaken subsequent study elsewhere, will be eligible to apply as a Special Student or for a second McGill degree. These students must contact Service Point for detailed applying instructions.

All applicants are expected to fulfill the admission requirements outlined under Admission Requirements and Deadlines.

The complete list of programs that will be open for January Admission will be posted in October 2019.

The application deadline for January admission will be November 1st, 2019.
