Promotional Efforts and Materials

How does the University encourage students to complete their course evaluations?

Email reminders

Email reminders with a direct link to Mercury are sent on behalf of the Deputy Provost (Student Life and Learning) to all students with course evaluations to complete. Once students complete or decline their course evaluations, they stop receiving these reminders.

  • Default period: 6 or 7 email reminders

  • Condensed period: 4 email reminders

  • Custom evaluation periods: 2 or 3 email reminders (3 are sent if the evaluation period exceeds 21 days)

  • The instructor receives an email alert when the evaluation period opens.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
