Courses and programs

Planning, building and modifying your course schedule

Planning and building a schedule for your first semester can seem like a daunting task. McGill offers thousands of courses, and it's understandable that you might need a little help wading through them all. Use this site to learn more about planning your course load, registering for courses, and adding and dropping them after the semester has started.

If you can't figure out what to do, even after reading through all of the information that you can find, you can always contact an academic advisor in your program, School or Faculty.  

When you have questions, seek out the answers you need. Your academic career is too important to gamble with.

Please note that this website is intended as an informal, unofficial guide to McGill courses and programs for undergraduate students. The eCalendar (a.k.a. Programs, Courses and University Regulations) publication is the only official source on this subject.
