Residency Requirement

Residency Requirement for Faculty of Arts Degrees

To obtain a degree, you must complete a minimum of 60 credits at McGill University toward the fulfilment of your degree requirements. At least two-thirds of all program requirements (Multi-track, Honours, Faculty) must normally be completed at McGill. In addition, some departments may require that you complete specific components of your program at McGill.

Exceptionally, and subject to departmental approval, if you are in a minor concentration and you pursue an approved exchange or study away program, you may complete up to half of the minor concentration requirements elsewhere.

The residency requirement for the Diploma in Environment is 30 credits completed at McGill.
