McGill University’s Fall 2022 academic activities are fully in-person.
The full McGill experience
The academic year ahead promises to be memorable and rich in the full McGill experience: a vibrant, social, exciting - and safe - campus life.
McGill is a community, and our campuses are where we unleash our full potential, genius and creativity. Our campuses are where we build friendships and forge connections.
We’re ready for an academic year abundant with the intellectual, social and cultural richness of life for which McGill is renowned.
Offering the best education
Since the start of the 2022-23 academic year, all undergraduate and graduate courses are delivered in-person, except for those specifically designed and approved to be delivered online.
True Hybrid or Hyflex courses continue to be offered where the curriculum allows and where specific conditions are met, but online, synchronous participation (i.e. optional remote participation in an otherwise in-person teaching activity) are no longer part of McGill’s digital learning experience.
Tutorials, instructors’ office hours, and other contact hours outside the classroom are in-person.
Our campuses, and the people who bring them to life, are what make us McGill
Accessibility and accommodations
With the resumption of all in-person academic activities, McGill will continue to support accessibility and reasonable individual accommodations.
For temporary short-term academic accommodations (for COVID or incidental illnesses) or for academic accommodations for immunocompromised students, contact your professor/instructor or your Faculty.
For longer-term academic accommodations resulting from a COVID infection (i.e., “long-COVID”), contact Student Accessibility and Achievement. Please note that this kind of accommodation requires medical documentation.
For questions related to residences, please contact Student Housing and Hospitality Services.
Let us know what you think
Our return to in-person academic activity in Fall 2022 is supported and guided by the final report of the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on COVID Academic Planning, the recommendations of which have been accepted and endorsed by Senate and University leadership.
The members of the McGill community are encouraged to read the Report and are invited to provide feedback on measures implemented and suggestions for further changes.
Staying safe and protecting our community
It’s important that we all remain vigilant and continue to look out for each other.
