Distance learning pilot project

During the summer term only, students may take 6 outside Law credits* or outside Non-Law credits** via online learning or "at a distance." This is a summer COVID-19 project, after which time the Faculty will re-evaluate.

Application Deadlines:

Fall term: August 15
Winter term: December 15
Summer term: April 15 (May courses), May 15 (June courses), June 15 (July courses)

As a general rule, requests submitted after the deadline will not be approved.

If there are extenuating circumstances, after the deadline, a student may contact SAO (iut [at] for special permission to submit a late request.

If the extenuating circumstances warrant the late request, the SAO will send email notification in support of the student’s late request, as such that the request can be processed.

During the term of your IUT, you will pay McGill tuition.

For course approval requests as of Summer 2020, use the new and improved interface AEHE where you log in with your McGill username and password. The IUT/AEHE application is optimized for use with Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Watch this short video on using the new interface.
