Academic Integrity

The Dean of Students is responsible for the oversight of academic integrity at McGill. If you have any questions, are wondering about academic integrity, or have comments and suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact the deanofstudents [at] (Dean of Students' Office).

Several tools are available to help students and professors be better informed about ensuring a high standard of academic integrity at McGill. For extensive information and tools, please visit the Student Rights and Responsibilities website.



Academic Integrity Tutorial

All undergraduate and graduate students are required to complete a mandatory Academic Integrity Tutorial in order to ensure that they know—and fully understand—what’s expected of them.

The Tutorial—which can be found in Minerva under the Student Menu—must be completed by the end of their first term at McGill. Failure to complete the Tutorial will result in a registration block for the following term. The registration block is automatically released the moment the Tutorial is completed in MINERVA.

NOTE: Prior to Fall 2018, undergraduate students had to complete the Tutorial in myCourses (found as course AAAA-100).

McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we are located.
