Distance Education Courses

  • A maximum of 6 credits of courses taught through distance education may be used as electives toward the B.A. & Sc. degree at McGill.
  • Courses taught through distance education from institutions other than McGill will be approved as transfer credits under the following conditions:
    • the course is given by a government-accredited, degree-granting institution acceptable to McGill;
    • the course counts for credit toward degrees granted at the institution giving the course;
    • prior approval for the course is obtained from the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA).
  • The combined total of regular course credits and distance education course credits may not exceed the permitted maximum number of credits per term according to the regulations for the B.A. & Sc. (see University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Registration > Course Load).
  • Courses taught through distance education may not be used to complete program requirements, except on an individual basis when serious, documented circumstances warrant it. In such cases, prior approval must be obtained from your program adviser and the Associate Dean, Student Affairs, Science.
