The initial versions of the McGill App and AskMcGill were launched to welcome the 2014-2015 academic year. In that initial phase, the content focused on new students. In October 2014, AskMcGill was enhanced to include vital information for current students. We will continue to consult with the McGill community over the next several months in an effort to further refine the tools in line with evolving student needs. Your feedback is an integral component of this continual improvement process. Please familiarize yourself with these two resources and kindly take a few minutes to give us your feedback.
With these two additional sources of information, students are more likely to find quick answers on their own, thereby allowing staff and faculty to address more complex issues and questions.

AskMcGill, a collaborative initiative brought to you by McGill Student Life and Learning and the School of Continuing Studies, is an interactive question/response online platform that answers students' questions expressed in natural (or everyday) language, with a single, accurate and consistent reply and/or links to the McGill website when relevant.
