Interruption of studies - transfer credit

If you studied at another university during an interruption of your McGill studies you may be eligible to receive transfer credit towards your McGill degree if you completed coursework at a degree granting institution that appears on the Arts OASIS list of institutions approved for transfer credit. Transfer credit that is reported after government reporting deadlines will have fee assessment implications.

If you took courses at another approved institution while registered as a degree student, instead of an undergraduate “non-degree Visiting student”, credits can only be transferred to your McGill degree once studyaway.arts [at] mcgill.ca (Arts OASIS) has received confirmation from the institution that you have withdrawn from the university and degree program.

You are not permitted to be concurrently registered as an undergraduate degree student at two different universities.

If you studied at another university during an interruption of your McGill studies and you do not have an active McGill student record, you must:

  1. Submit a Minerva “Request for Readmission
  2. Indicate in the “Student Comment” section of your application, the name of the institution you attended and the list of course(s) in which you were enrolled. If you obtained a Bachelor’s degree at another institution, you must indicate it.
  3. Submit unofficial copies of transcripts concurrently with your Minerva readmission application. Using your McGill email account or the current email address you provided (if your McGill email account is inactive) send the PDF attachment of your unofficial transcripts to advisor.arts [at] mcgill.ca with the subject line: READMISSION DOCUMENT – UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT - YOUR NAME AND McGILL ID NUMBER.
  4. Once received, your transcript(s) will be reviewed and you will receive an email from the Transfer Credit Team informing you whether you are eligible to receive transfer credit towards your McGill degree and if additional documentation (ex: official transcript) is required, therefore, please check your email account regularly.
