Requirements for Quebec applicants

Admission requirements for September 2021
Quebec CEGEP, college and high school applicants

Admission review process

Select your diploma:

Pre-University DEC

You must have obtained, prior to the start of classes, a Diplôme d’études collégiales (DEC).

Your application is reviewed on your overall R-Score (as determined by the Ministry) as well as a core R-Score average of any prerequisite courses (calculated by McGill's Admissions Office). The courses included in the core average differ depending on the program to which you have you applied.

  • A science core average includes all 101 biology, 201 mathematics, 202 chemistry, and 203 physics.
  • An engineering core average includes all 201 mathematics, 202 chemistry and 203 physics.
  • A management core average includes all 201 mathematics courses.

McGill uses the overall R-Score (not the program R-Score) when reviewing applications.  However, applicants who have changed programs and whose performance has improved significantly after the change, should inform McGill by checking the “extenuating circumstances” box on the application and providing a personal statement about their CEGEP experience.  In exceptional cases, the McGill decision may be based on a selection of CEGEP grades.

All results are taken into consideration in determining admission, including those for failed or repeated courses.

For programs where science and/or math are prerequisites, these must normally have been completed within the last five years.

If graduating with a DEC in “Sciences, lettres, et arts" or a DEC in "Computer Science and Mathematics", you are eligible for admission to most undergraduate programs. You may be required to complete any missing portion of prerequisites at McGill in addition to, or as part of, your program requirements.

If graduating with a DEC sans mention, you must have completed all prerequisite courses for the program to which you are applying.

Technical DEC

If graduating with a three-year technical DEC, you may be eligible for admission to certain undergraduate programs.  Consult prerequisite requirements for details. 

All results are taken into consideration in determining admission, including those for failed or repeated courses.

For programs where science and/or math are prerequisites, these must normally have been completed within the last five years.

French Baccalaureate (at Collège Marie de France and Collège Stanislas in Quebec)

For most programs, your application is reviewed on your 'bulletins' (with results on 20) from Première and Terminale or, if you have already graduated, on your final ‘Bac’ results. While a diploma in “premier groupe” with “mention assez bien” is the minimum expected, most programs are more competitive and will require higher results. 

Consult the minimum grades accepted for admission last year. 

NOTE: Dentistry, Law and Medicine review applicants on their R Score.  Music reviews applicants on their percentage grades.  For more information, please consult directly with the appropriate admissions office.

All results are taken into consideration in determining admission, including those for failed or repeated courses.

To be eligible to apply to Dentistry, Dietetics, Management, Medicine, Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy, the completion of complementary coursework (‘compléments’) will be required.

Other Quebec Schools

Select your school from the list below for details on admission requirements:

- Applicants from Quebec Alexander von Humbolt German School (Abitur) will be reviewed on school transcripts.

- Applicants from Lower Canada College and Stanstead College (Grade 12 or the IB Diploma) will be reviewed on school transcripts and IB predictions (if applicable).

Students completing a Quebec Secondary V Diploma are not directly admissible to undergraduate study at McGill. Quebec high school graduates who attend one full year of university study outside Quebec may be admissible as Transfer students. Please note that courses completed at schools or institutions designed primarily to offer religious education (such as bible colleges, seminaries, or yeshivas) normally are not considered equivalent to university study.


R-Score cut-offs and prerequisite courses

As a guideline, we have listed the lowest R-Scores admitted over the last three years. These are historical values and do not represent the R-Score that will be required for future admission. R-Score cut-offs can fluctuate up or down from one year to the next.

For more information on McGill’s R-Score calculation for admission, consult the Admission review process in the Pre-application to-do list.
