Beginning in Fall 2018, all newly admitted students and those who have transferred to another music program within the Schulich School of Music can access an individually customized program plan via McGill’s OneDrive on Microsoft Office 365. Called the Online Program Audit (OPA), this personalized document is exclusive to students pursuing a Bachelor of Music or a Licentiate in Music at Schulich.
The OPA allows a student to track their progress toward the fulfillment of their degree requirements by keeping a record of their exemptions, transfer credits and all of the courses that a student has completed towards the fulfillment of their program. The Music Student Affairs Office updates the OPA once a year, usually between February and March.
To access the OPA:
- Log into the Microsoft OneDrive for Business site using your McGill username and password here: https://portal.office.com
- Once you are in the Office 365 portal, you should see an Excel document with your name, formatted as: LastName_PreferredFirstName_Program, e.g. Smith_John_BMus
- You can download a copy of your OPA so you can make notes to help plan your future studies.
The OPA is the official tool that Schulich School of Music uses for advising and graduation review. Contact the studentaffairs.music [at] mcgill.ca (Student Affairs Office )if you have any questions about your OPA.
Do not use the Degree Evaluation Tool on Minerva to plan for your courses or review graduation requirements. This form is inaccurate and not a true reflection of courses completed within your program.
