Note to Parents/Guardians

Arts OASIS recognize the vital role that families play in supporting students at McGill.

Given our advising mandate, and supporting further building of your child's independence and resiliency, we will interact chiefly with the student when advising.  Per Québec privacy laws (details here), students must provide consent should they like to share their student status or record at McGill with a parent or third-party.
