Where to start?

  1. Undergrads, review the I've Been Accepted site.
    If you're an undergraduate student, this is the place to learn about registering for courses, submitting documents, etc.

  2. Grad students, check out the Graduate and Post-Doctoral Students site. 
    As a graduate student, the GPS site is your source for registration information, graduate-specific resources, policies, etc

  3. Join your Entering Class Facebook and Discord groups! 
    There are separate undergraduate, Macdonald Campus undergraduate and graduate groups on Facebook, and one undergraduate Discord group

  4. Sign up for a Student Matching Program. 
    Canadian students can sign up for the New Student Mentorship Program, Canadian and international students can join First Friend, and international students have access to the Buddy Program!

  5. Sign up for Pre-Registration Orientation, your faculty-specific registration overview for undergrads. 
    This series of workshops will help you learn about course registration, consult face to face with your academic advisor, and more. 

  6. Learn all about McGill on MyCourses, McGill's online course platform. 
    Undergraduate students can complete the McGill 101 course, while graduate students have access to Graduate Life Orientation (GLO), your guide to graduate life at McGill. 

  7. Plan ahead for healthcare and prescriptions.
    It may take some time to access a doctor when you first arrive in Montreal, so it's important to prepare ahead of time, especially if you're already taking medication. Visit our Plan Your Healthcare page for help. 

  8. Découvrir les ressources disponibles aux étudiants francophones. 
    Our Francophone student offerings help French-speaking students find the community and resources you need.
