Course Equivalencies

Please refer to the McGill Information and requirements for undergraduate admissions page for full information. The university advanced standing page is also useful for determining equivalencies.

If you feel that you've completed the equivalent of one or more university-level Chemistry courses, but do not have acceptable certification to that effect, you may be eligible to write admission placement exams.
