Admission Requirements – Diploma Programs

Admission Requirements – Diploma Programs

To be admitted to a 30-credit diploma program, applicants must have an undergraduate degree from an approved university and meet the language requirements (see Proof of Proficiency in English). Some programs have additional requirements that are noted within the description of the specific program. Applicants who have studied outside Canada are advised to request an evaluation of their degree, called an Évaluation comparative des études effectuées hors du Québec, from Quebec’s Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles. Further details can be found on the web at www.immigration-quebec.gouv.qc.ca/en/education/comparative-evaluation/index.html, or by calling 514-864-9191. This equivalency evaluation may be required along with an official transcript when applying for admission. Applicants should be aware that educational credentials obtained at non-Canadian institutions will also be assessed for equivalency with a McGill University degree. Consequently, a grade point conversion system is applied to programs that use different grading systems other than that utilized by McGill University. Therefore any cumulative undergraduate average or Standing that is not reported on a CGPA scale of 4.0 will have to be converted to a CGPA scale of 4.0.

Please see Career and Professional Development Programs with a Minimum CGPA Requirement for further details on applying to a program with a CGPA below the indicated required minimum.
