Where can you work on campus? 

 

** Definition of "Full-time" studies: 

* If you are a McGill degree-seeking student, and your Study Permit was issued June 1, 2014 or later, it will likely include conditions and/or remarks that clearly state that you are eligible to work on or off campus if you meet the eligibility requirements.  This will be necessary in order to be able to apply for a Social Insurance Number.

If you are a McGill degree-seeking student, and your Study Permit does not include a reference to your eligibility to work on or off campus, you can submit a request for an amendment to your study permit in order to be able to apply for a Social Insurance Number. The Request to Amend can only be submitted by mail - there is no fee for this request -and you can check the current processing time required.

  • If you are an undergraduate student: Minimum 12 credits per term (exceptions: scheduled breaks - like Reading Week & Summer - and the final term before graduation, when you are permitted to be registered part-time and still maintain your working privileges)
  • If you are a Non-Thesis Masters student:  Minimum 12 credits per term (exceptions: Department scheduled breaks (ask Dept. if unsure) and the final term before graduation, when you are permitted to be registered part-time and still maintain your working privileges)
  • If you are in a Graduate Thesis program (Masters, Phd):  Registration in a full-time program, regardless of # of credits per term.
