Certain restrictions apply. In all cases, you should consult the appropriate adviser for approval before making any changes and for faculty-specific regulations concerning program changes. Further information is also available on the Changing Programs web page.
You are not permitted to use Minerva to change your degree or to select a program in another faculty or school.
Note for Arts, Science, or B.A. & Sc. freshman programs (97 or more credits): You cannot change your freshman program on Minerva, but may change options within your freshman program where options are available. Once you have been promoted from the freshman year you will be able to change departmental programs using Minerva as outlined in the note below.
Note for Arts, Science*, or B.A. & Sc. degree (96 or fewer credits):
You may change major/major concentrations, minor/minor concentrations or faculty programs using Minerva. You may also change into, or out of, an honours program. Some restrictions apply.
* Science students are limited to choosing majors or honours programs within the Science group to which they were admitted, but may continue to choose freely from all available minor programs. To change to a major or honours program in another Science group, students must submit an Intra-Faculty Transfer application; see mcgill.ca/students/transfer-readmission.
Note for Faculty of Education (B.Ed. Secondary program): You may add, drop, or change majors using Minerva.
