6 School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition : 6.3 Academic Information and Regulations : 6.3.4 Minimum Credit Requirement

You must complete the minimum credit requirement for your degree as specified in your letter of admission.
Normally, Quebec students who have completed the Diplôme d'études collégiales (DEC) or equivalent diploma are admitted to the first year of a program requiring the completion of a minimum of 90 credits for Nutrition, 115 credits for Dietetics, and 122 credits for the Concurrent Degrees in Food Science and Nutritional Sciences.
Students from outside Quebec who are admitted on the basis of a high school diploma enter the Freshman Major, which comprises 30 credits (see section 6.2.3 “Admission Requirements”).
You should not repeat a course at McGill that overlaps significantly in content with a course that you have taken elsewhere. Normally, transfer credits would be applied if the course taken elsewhere is deemed to be equivalent. Once admitted to the program, see your adviser for advice regarding course selection and credit transfers.
