B.Sc. Freshman Program
If you need 97–120 credits (four years) to complete your degree requirements, you must register in the Science Freshman program, which is designed to provide the basic science foundation for your subsequent three-year Liberal, Major, or Honours program. For a detailed description of the Science Freshman program, you should consult Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) - Freshman Program (30 credits) and the Science Freshman Student information available on the SOUSA website, mcgill.ca/science/undergraduate/handbook.
If you have completed the Diploma of Collegial Studies, Advanced Placement exams, Advanced Levels, the International Baccalaureate, the French Baccalaureate, or McGill placement examinations, you may receive exemption and/or credit for all or part of the basic science courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Similarly, if you have completed courses at other universities or colleges, you may receive exemptions and/or credits. You should consult mcgill.ca/transfercredit/prospective for more information.
