Advising for the Bachelor of Arts and Science Degree
If you need 96 or fewer credits to complete your degree requirements, you must consult an academic adviser in your proposed department of study to obtain advice and approval of your course selection (please see Departmental Programs). To facilitate program planning, you must present your transcript(s) and letter of admission. If you have not fulfilled the B.A. & Sc. Freshman program requirements, you should also seek advice from an adviser in the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA). For a detailed description of advising and registration procedures, refer to University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Undergraduate Advising, Registration, and to the website for newly admitted undergraduate students, as well as the SOUSA website, and finally your department's website.
If you need 97–120 credits to complete your degree requirements, you will normally be registered in a Freshman program until you complete your first year. You must consult an adviser in the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) to obtain advice and approval of your course selection. For a detailed description of advising and registration procedures, you should refer to www.mcgill.ca/newstudents, and to the information on the SOUSA website.
Advising for all returning students takes place in March for the upcoming academic year. For more information, refer to www.mcgill.ca/basc/students/advising.
