Application Process

NOTE:  BSW students MUST first discuss plans to take courses at another university with their program adviser in Social Work. If the School of Social Work approves your course selection, then continue to follow the application instructions outlined below.

Step 1: Review the information on the IUT homepage and the OASIS Plan & Prepare information.

Step 2: Verify that the course(s) you want to take is approved in the Course Equivalency System. All courses require approval by the corresponding McGill department so, in order for your request to be submitted to the correct unit, carefully read the following information.

  • If the course you want to take appears on the Course Equivalency System, you can submit your IUT-CREPUQ application.
  • If you are able to find a course on the Course Equivalency System but the equivalence has expired you will have the option of requesting a reassessment by following the instructions. (See #8 Expired Equivalency).
  • If you are NOT able to find a course on the Course Equivalency System you will have to request that a new equivalency assessment be done. (See #6 New Course Equivalency). The request will require that you upload a pdf of the course syllabus which must include the textbooks, readings, method of evaluation, and any other relevant information. Please take the time to read the course syllabus checklist. Once the course equivalency has been assessed and approved, you will receive an email notification that it has been added to the Course Equivalency System. You will then be able to submit your IUT-CREPUQ application.

Step 3: Complete the CREPUQ application.

Start by selecting the appropriate ‘field of study’ from the drop-down menu of the CREPUQ application.

  • Courses (required, complementary or elective): select the academic unit/department offering the program. Select the subject area not the degree. For example, select "Political Science", not “BA in Political Science”.
  • For Basic Math and Science courses: select "BA Undeclared" as the name of your program of study.
  • For Courses outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science: select "BA Undeclared" as the name of your program of study.
  • For Online courses: select “BA Undeclared” as the name of your program of study.
  • All courses must be evaluated and approved for McGill equivalences before submitting your IUT-CREPUQ application.

Step 4: Once the host university and McGill approve your course(s) you still need to register for the course(s) at the university. Registration instructions will be provided by the host university.

Step 5: Your approved IUT status will be noted on your McGill record as “IUT – Transfer”. If this coding does not appear within the first 4 weeks of classes, please email iut [at]
