Apply to Graduate

Apply to Graduate

Most undergraduate students and non-thesis graduate students (master's, certificates, diplomas) must use Minerva to apply to graduate (go to Student Records > Apply for Graduation for Your Primary Curriculum). It is your responsibility to inform McGill of your intention to graduate. You need a minimum residency requirement of 60 credits at McGill to qualify for a McGill undergraduate degree. For more information, see Graduation. The minimum CGPA required to graduate is 2.00, and you must be in Satisfactory Standing.

The Application for Graduation is available on Minerva when you register for your final year (e.g., U3 or U4), except if you are in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences or Faculty of Dentistry, where you are automatically flagged for graduation in your final year. For more information on how to apply on Minerva, go to mcgill.ca/graduation/applying.

Once you apply to graduate, you are authorizing the University to:

  1. include your name and image in the McGill Convocation programs, web streamed convocation broadcast, and other convocation-related communications
  2. to have your ID, name, degree and ceremony provided to the Academic Regalia provider for the purposes of Convocation preparation
  3. to have your ID, name, email, degree and ceremony provided to the Convocation Photographer for the purposes of Convocation preparation
  4. to have your name, email, degree and confirmation of graduation sent to your professional order, if you are in a professional program (e.g. Engineering OIQ, Nursing OIIQ), for licensing or accreditation purposes

If you want to opt out of your information being sent to any of the above (1, 2, 3 or 4), you must complete an Opposition Form by March 15 for Spring convocation, and September 15 for Fall convocation.
