When to see an advisor
- Did you change majors after passing a course with content similar to one in your new major?
- Is a new course being offered that sounds relevant but isn’t included on the list of complementary courses for your minor?
- Would you like to take a course at another university as part of your McGill major?
Although most students follow the published program requirements, academic advisors do sometimes permit individual students to make justifiable exceptions. If you feel that slightly modifying your program would benefit you greatly, ask an academic advisor for an “adjustment” to your program.
If your request is approved, you and your advisor must complete a Transfer Credit Student Adjustment Form [.pdf] and submit it to the Faculty Student Affairs Office for approval. Students in the Faculties of Arts or Science should submit their form to Service Point. (Engineering students should contact their Student Affairs Office for a faculty-specific form.)
