ADMISSION REVIEW PROCESS

Select your diploma:

Pre-University DEC

You must have obtained, prior to the start of classes, a Diplôme d’études collégiales (DEC).

Your application is reviewed on your overall R-Score (as determined by the Ministry) as well as a core R-Score average of any prerequisite courses (calculated by McGill's Admissions Office). The courses included in the core average differ depending on the program to which you have you applied.

  • A science core average includes all 101 biology, 201 mathematics, 202 chemistry, and 203 physics.
  • An engineering core average includes all 201 mathematics, 202 chemistry and 203 physics.
  • A management core average includes all 201 mathematics courses.

McGill uses the overall R-Score (not the program R-Score) when reviewing applications.  However, applicants who have changed programs and whose performance has improved significantly after the change, should inform McGill by checking the “extenuating circumstances” box on the application and providing a personal statement about their CEGEP experience.  In exceptional cases, the McGill decision may be based on a selection of CEGEP grades.

All results are taken into consideration in determining admission, including those for failed or repeated courses.

For programs where science and/or math are prerequisites, these must normally have been completed within the last five years.

If graduating with a DEC in “Sciences, lettres, et arts" or a DEC in "Computer Science and Mathematics", you are eligible for admission to most undergraduate programs. You may be required to complete any missing portion of prerequisites at McGill in addition to, or as part of, your program requirements.

Technical DEC

If graduating with a three-year technical DEC, you may be eligible for admission to certain undergraduate programs.  Consult prerequisite requirements for details.

All results are taken into consideration in determining admission, including those for failed or repeated courses.

For programs where science and/or math are prerequisites, these must normally have been completed within the last five years.

French Baccalaureate (at Collège Marie de France and Collège Stanislas in Quebec)

For most programs, your application is reviewed on your 'bulletins' (with results on 20) from Première and Terminale or, if you have already graduated, on your final ‘Bac’ results. While a diploma in “premier groupe” with “mention assez bien” is the minimum expected, most programs are more competitive and will require higher results. 

Consult the minimum grades accepted for admission last year

NOTE: Dentistry, Law and Medicine review applicants on their R Score.  Music reviews applicants on their percentage grades.  For more information, please consult directly with the appropriate admissions office.

All results are taken into consideration in determining admission, including those for failed or repeated courses.

To be eligible to apply to Dentistry, Dietetics, Management, Medicine, Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy, the completion of complementary coursework (‘compléments’) will be required.

Other Quebec Schools

Select your school from the list below for details on admission requirements:

- Applicants from Quebec Alexander von Humbolt German School (Abitur) will be reviewed on school transcripts.

- Applicants from Lower Canada College and Stanstead College (Grade 12 or the IB Diploma) will be reviewed on school transcripts and IB predictions (if applicable).

Students completing a Quebec Secondary V Diploma are not directly admissible to undergraduate study at McGill. Quebec high school graduates who attend one full year of university study outside Quebec may be admissible as Transfer students. Please note that courses completed at schools or institutions designed primarily to offer religious education (such as bible colleges, seminaries, or yeshivas) normally are not considered equivalent to university study.

 


MINIMUM GRADES AND PREREQUISITE COURSES

The values listed below are not the grades that will be required for admission in September 2019.  Rather, they represent the lowest R-Score used for admission for September 2018.  An R-Score that is equal to or better than those listed does not guarantee future admission; admission to McGill is competitive and subject to availability of space.  As such, the minimum overall R-Score required for entry may fluctuate up or down by as much as 2.0 points, or more, in any given year.

Consult the printable PDF table of minimum grades for all programs.

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION

1) Academic documents

CEGEP: You are not required to submit official transcripts. However, you must enter your Permanent Code during the application process. Applications submitted without a valid Permanent Code will not be reviewed until a valid Permanent Code is provided. McGill University will obtain an official transcript electronically from the MELS. If, for any reason, the University cannot obtain an electronic copy of your marks, an official copy may be requested from your CEGEP.

If you intend to enrol in a Summer CEGEP course in the semester before university entry, you must inform the appropriate McGill admissions office in writing, no later than June 10. Please state the name and code of the summer course and the reasons the course is being taken. Students admitted to McGill University are required to obtain their DEC; otherwise, admission may be revoked.

OTHER QUEBEC SCHOOLS: You must upload your transcript via Minerva.

 

2) Proof of English proficiency

Applicants from Quebec are NOT required to submit proof of English proficiency if they have:

- Completed, or are completing, a DEC at an English CEGEP.

- Completed the Secondary V diploma and have completed, or are completing, a DEC at a French CEGEP.

If neither of the above situations applies, official test results may be required by the supporting document deadline.  Please consult Proof of English proficiency for accepted tests and other exemptions.

 

3) Additional supporting documents

Additional supporting documents (such as recommendation letters and personal statements) are only required in the following circumstances:

 - You have applied to Architecture, Education, Nursing, Physical & Occupational Therapy, Religious Studies and/or Social Work.

 - You have applied to Dentistry, Law, Medicine and/or Music - consult the appropriate Faculty website.

 - You have complete the separate application for Major Entrance Scholarship and/or Financial Aid

 - You selected ‘Extenuating Circumstances’ on the application for admission

If none of the above circumstances apply, additional supporting documents are not considered in the admission review and should not be submitted.
