6.4.6 Academic Credit Transfer Agreement/Inter-University Transfer Agreement

In certain cases, credits may be granted by the School for courses taken at other universities. Approval by the Program Director is necessary and must be obtained in advance.

Students wishing to take advantage of this agreement should consult the Student Affairs Office for details, and are informed that this agreement is subject to the following conditions:

a) the other universities concerned may, at their discretion, refuse the registration of a student for any of its courses;
b) the obligation of the student to follow the curriculum laid down by McGill is not affected;
c) the student is responsible for ensuring that the McGill timetable permits these courses to be taken without conflict;
d) the universities concerned are not responsible for special arrangements in cases of examination or timetable conflicts;
e) marks earned at the host university will not appear on McGill transcripts or be included in McGill grade point averages;
f) scholarship holders should consult with the Scholarships Office concerning eligibility for continuation or renewal of their awards.
Students may take advantage of this agreement by completing an electronic form available on the Web at This form permits the student to obtain the required authorizations.
The letter grades applied by the host institution take precedence over the numerical grades if both are provided. In order to be granted transfer credits, the final grades earned at the host university must meet the minimum requirements as set by the Occupational Therapy or Physical Therapy programs. Grades earned at the host university for transfer courses are not entered on the student's McGill transcript and are not included in the calculation of the TGPA or CGPA.
For universities outside of Quebec, it is the student's responsibility to ensure that an official transcript is sent from the host institution to the Student Affairs Office. Students studying at another Quebec university on an Inter-University Transfer Agreement (IUT) will have their grade(s) sent to McGill University automatically by the host university. Transcripts not received by the appropriate date will be considered for the next graduation period only.
