Current Student Information

All new students accepted must confirm on uApply that they have accepted their offer of admission before they can register for their program of admission.

PLEASE NOTE: The M.A. program (45 credits) requires the completion of a minimum of 2 semesters of course work and a thesis. The program may be completed during three terms of residence (required by McGill University) the last of which may be the fall semester of the second year following registration. Full fees will be charged for each term of residence. Residency requirements for an MA thesis degree at McGill is 3 full time terms. Information on fees is available on the Student Accounts website.

Full fees will be charged for the three (3) terms of residence and you should plan to budget accordingly. Should you require more than three terms to complete your program, you will then be charged fees for an additional session (MA thesis). Refer to the Graduate Fees page for MA fee information. International students should also be aware that they are required to carry health insurance for the duration of their studies, at an extra cost. Please see International Student Services

Once you register as a graduate student, you are responsible for all fees associated with registration. Should your circumstances change after registration (e.g., you withdraw from the university), please get in touch with the History Department as soon as possible, as there are deadline dates to adhere to and forms to be completed in order to avoid being charged fees for the year. Refer to the Calendar of Dates.

International students should also refer to the McGill International Student Services website for important information concerning immigration, health insurance (as mentioned above), etc.
