Credit for Statistics courses
BCom Students must take the statistics courses that are part of the BCom degree, as specified in Core and the various programs. There are many statistics courses at McGill that overlap with the statistics in our BCom degree. If students wish to receive credit from other statistics courses at McGill, they must be assessed by the BCom Office on a case-by-case basis.
