Transfer of Credits from Host Institution
Grades received from the host institution do not appear on the McGill transcript nor are they calculated in the McGill CGPA. The McGill transcript includes a notation of participation in an exchange, the number of transfer credits granted by McGill, and where applicable, McGill course exemptions.
Students can begin the transfer of credits process once they have registered at the host school and have obtained course syllabi. For more detailed information, students should consult their faculty Student Affairs Office. The transfer credits process should be completed within the shortest delay possible after the end of the exchange term.
Before leaving the host institution, students should order two (2) copies of the official transcript for their files, and ensure that the institution sends an official version of the transcript to Service Point at McGill (mcgill.ca/servicepoint).
