This page contains links to forms related to your course, program and student records at McGill.
Program Audit (PA)
As a student enrolled in a Bachelor of Music or Licentiate in Music program, you are given a program audit (PA) at time of admission. The PA is a shared Excel document on McGill’s One Drive that keeps track of your program progress. The Schulich School of Music defers to the PA, instead of Minerva’s myProgress, when evaluating how close you are to graduation.
Log-in instructions to your PA can be found here.
Course Permit / Override Form
If you receive one of these common registration error messages (such as program, major, prerequisite, capacity, instructor/departmental approval) when trying to add a music course on Minerva, submit a Course Permit/Override Form to seek permission to register.
For courses offered outside the Schulich School of Music, contact the department which offers the course to seek permission to register.
Practical Instruction Application
As a student in the Bachelor of Music or Licentiate in Music program, you must submit a practical instruction request every year if you would like to take private lessons (MUIN courses). The application form must be submitted before the end of May preceding the academic year you plan to take practical instruction.

Practical Exam Application
You cannot add practical exams (MUIN concentration or performance exams) yourself on Minerva. To apply for a practical exam, submit an exam application form from your program’s web page on the Schulich School of Music’s website. To access the form, go to your given program’s web page, scroll down to the Program structure heading and select “Exams”.
As a student in a Bachelor of Music program, you may propose a personal project with a specialized topic correlated to your professional development as a music student.
