INTD Program Advising

Effective Currently:

NO DROP-IN's permitted. Please read below.

Program Advising will take place via EMAIL/ONLINE.

  • IF your questions are simple/quick for Majors/Honours/Jt Honours, or if you are pursuing a Minor in IDS and have questions, I encourage you to pursue email advising, as this will be quicker. Email kirsty.mckinnon [at] mcgill.ca (IDS Student Affairs Advisor )and you should expect a response as soon as possible.
  • The advisor is using MS Teams to meet virtually, please make an appointment here: Microsoft Teams Booking ISID. The online appointment is held through MS Teams (works on mobile, desktop, or through a browser). Before your appointment, be sure to have properly setup what is required to join the meeting.
  • Online appointments are ALWAYS recommended, through this period of transition, as of September 8, 2021 - If you would like an in-person meeting, the Advisor will be back on campus as of September 8th, 2021  on Thursdays and Fridays. Select one of these days and times on the Bookings app and indicate in a seperate email to kirsty.mckinnon [at] mcgill.ca (IDS Student Affairs Advisor )that you will be coming into the office for advising. Please only consider scheduling an IN-PERSON appointment if you are not ill and can wear a mask.
  • Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are exclusively ONLINE. At all times appointments will always be defaulted to ONLINE for Thursdays and Fridays UNLESS email sent prior indicates an in-person request.
  • (Note: you still need to sign up for the appointment here Microsoft Teams Booking ISID for online or in-person) - In person, just REQUIRES an email sent to inform the office of your in-person visit.
  • Any questions - call 514-398-4804

NOTE:  Appointments can change due to last minute advisor availability. Always check your McGill email.
