McGill Style Reference
Refer to the Canadian Oxford Dictionary (2nd Edition) for spelling, and to the Chicago Manual of Style (16th Edition) for all style issues not covered in this guide.
CreditsDo not abbreviate.
|credits not cr.|
Use periods to abbreviate degrees. There should be no space in a degree abbreviation or between degree and (specialization). When mentioning degree year for McGill graduates, omit space and replace first two digits of year with a single quote, except when full year is needed for clarity.
Exceptions include numerals following a degree (i.e., Ph.D. 1).
Use the article that applies to the form as it would sound when reading it out loud.
Note: For B.Com., use BCom when not referring to degree title in MGMT Faculty pieces (non-program pieces).
See Appendix 1 for further examples of degree abbreviations. Note that different schools may use varying abbreviations for similar degrees (i.e., Ph.D. vs. D.Phil.).

Links are automatically underlined on the eCalendar website and PDF (either always underlined or on hover).
For this reason, to avoid confusion, underline formatting should never be used outside the context of links (web or email). For emphasizing text, use bold or italics.
|Please do not mail us any unsolicited documentation since it will not be reviewed. For a list of required documents, consult the Supporting Documents section of the Applying to Undergraduate Studies website.|
|Bold; do not use All Caps. The "Note" element may be used as needed.

The eCalendar is McGill's official repository for academic programs. It is directly linked to program information found on transcripts and in government reporting, and is used for advising and for assessing graduation requirements.
Given the importance of program information, academic units should use content syndication to reflect eCalendar program requirements on other McGill websites, supplemented by their own information, rather than recreating program requirements in full.
The eCalendar is McGill's official repository and public database for academic programs and courses. For this reason, programs go through a rigorous approval process to ensure the quality, accuracy, and consistency of academic information.
To facilitate the approval process, it's important to include any and all essential information, while omitting non-essential information. Certain information regarding potential students should be included in program descriptions (ex.: target audience, topics of study, delivery method, etc.), though information that may change often or that does not require approval to be updated should be omitted (ex.: application procedures, contact information, etc.). Credit weights should not be included in descriptions since these are included automatically in course lists.
As a general rule: any information that requires SCTP approval should appear once, either in the program description, or in the course lists. Any information that does not require SCTP approval (application procedures, contact information, etc.) should not be included. Please refer to the SCTP website for information on SCTP approval guidelines.
Program descriptions should briefly describe the program in question while outlining its benefits and unique selling points to prospective students. Information regarding subjects of focus, target audience, program timeline, and delivery method should also be included, as well as any special information of note to prospective students. Information regarding potential career paths may also be included.
|INCLUDE:||DO NOT INCLUDE:|
Target audience (ex.: "This program is designed for students with a BCom degree (or equivalent) who are interested in starting a business of their own.")
Admission requirements, application procedures (this information should be included in non-program informational text)
Essential information for prospective students
Names, contact information
Topics of study, faculty research interests
Credit weights, credit requirements (these are automatically included in course lists)
Method of delivery (on-campus, off-campus/field studies, online elements, etc.)
Program timeline (ex.: "This program should be completed within 3 years.")
Potential career paths (ex.: "This program provides a strong foundation for students wishing to pursue graduate studies in biophysics, as well as for research careers in industrial, hospital, or academic settings.")
Links to external websites
Information that is likely to change within a year
Programs should include a course list of all courses and activities that can be counted towards successful completion of the program. In the case of electives and special activities (ex.: IPEAs), this list need not be exhaustive.
Courses should be divided into the following categories:
|Required courses and activities are listed in alphanumeric order and represent courses that must be completed to fulfil the requirements of a program, unless the student receives exemptions. This section may be further subdivided to provide an outline of the program's recommended course of study.|
|Complementary courses and activities represent a restricted list, a particular subject area, or a discipline, as defined by the offering academic unit. In some programs, students must include a number of these to meet program requirements. These are distinct from Elective courses.|
|Electives are courses and activities taken outside of a student’s principal program of study (i.e. required and complementary courses) and contribute to the fulfilment of overall degree/credit requirements.|
Program Titles (for Enrolment Services use only)
Degrees should appear written out in full, followed by the abbreviation in brackets (See Degree Abbreviations section for standards).
