Course Registration

For comprehensive registration information, consult the McGill Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies Registration page. Additional information for incoming MISt students is included in the the MISt Student Handbook "Course registration guide" section.

You can find course availability by semester in the Minerva Dynamic Schedule. All School of Information Studies courses begin with the subject code "INFS."

"REGN" code

The "REGN" registration confirmation code is a required McGill administrative code to confirm registration for graduate students. Registration in Minerva of the REGN registration confirmation course is mandatory for all graduate students each term. Don't forget! Note: There is no charge associated with registering for the REGN, and advisor approval is not required prior to REGN registration.

Fall 2023: CRN 179
Winter 2024: CRN 190


LATE REGISTRATION FEE: Please note that if you register after the regular regulation period, you will be charged for late registration. See the McGill Student Account Fees, Fines & Charges page.

To avoid late registration fees, register for at least one course via Minerva before the normal registration period ends. If you will be attending SIS but have not yet selected courses, register for the REGN course before the start of the term to confirm you are a student in that term. You can register for additional courses any time up to the deadline for add/drops. 

MISt program - Completion of required courses

A significant number of MISt courses have one of the four required courses as prerequisites; students are strongly advised to complete the four required MISt courses in their first semester. Throughout the program, students themselves are responsible to ensure that the required courses are completed and program requirements are met. For any questions about course and program planning and requirements, students should contact their academic advisors.

Not in a SIS program?

Graduate-level students from other McGill units, external units, and SIS graduates may be eligible to apply to register for certain SIS courses, space and permission permitting. Not all courses are available to students who are not enrolled in programs at the School. For more information, please contact the SIS Administrative & Student Affairs Coordinator (see below). Please note: SIS courses are offered on campus at McGill University in Montreal; online course are not available.


For any questions about course planning and program requirements, please contact your academic advisor. PhD students: please contact your supervisor.
