Pre-Registration Orientation (PRO)

Welcome to McGill PRO (Pre-Registration Orientation)! 

McGill PRO (Pre-Registration Orientation) is a series of workshops to help you navigate course registration and lets you connect with your Academic Advisor face-to-face virtually. Some students are also able to write English and French placement exams as well as meet with an Access Advisor from the Office for Students with Disabilities!


Sessions

PRO programming includes general course registration information, faculty-specific tips (as well as the chance to meet with a Faculty Advisor), placement tests in both English and French, and the chance to meet with an advisor from the Office for Students with Disabilities. 

What did you think?

 

We hope these sessions helped answer your questions about course registration.

 

If you haven't already - tell us how we did to improve future orientation sessions. Our online survey takes around 5 minutes to complete, and even if you didn't participate in this year's event, you have the opportunity to tell us why. Complete the survey

 

We look forward to seeing you on campus during Welcome Week and Orientation!

Faculty Specific Session(s)
