Finding summer work

Students are expected to work during the summer months to save for the upcoming academic year. Work Study authorization usually includes the summer term provided you are not scheduled to graduate at the end of the current academic year.

Extending your Work Study authorization

If you are approved for the Fall and/or Winter terms and are not scheduled to graduate, you may work.study [at] mcgill.ca (email the Work Study team) to inquire about extending current Work Study authorization to include the Summer term.
