Your McGill email
Your McGill email is your main point of contact for all things McGill (important university updates, e-bills, communicating with professors etc.). Using the Office 365 portal gives you access to your email as well as a number of cloud-based apps like file storage, a task manager, and a calendar.
McGill emails are a variation of firstname.lastname [at] mail.mcgill.ca. You can verify your email address on the Minerva Personal Menu. Read our instructions on setting up your McGill email on the First-Year website.
myCourses is McGill's learning management system and is an online platform that enables you to view your classes, check grades, and more. Instructors use myCourses to enhance classroom-based learning with online materials and to make announcements, so you'll want to check it regularly.
It Takes All of Us:
You'll also have access to the mandatory sexual violence education program It Takes All of Us on myCourses. The program strives to increase awareness of sexual violence, to ensure that our campus culture is based on respect and consent, and to help create a community free of sexual violence. Failure to complete the program by the end of your first semester will result in a registration hold for the following semester.
By this point, you’re likely already familiar with Minerva. It’s the platform that you used to register for classes, that enables you to view your weekly class schedule, and that you’ll be paying your e-Bills on. Check out the First-Year website for more about what you can do on Minerva.
Academic Integrity Tutorial:
All undergraduate students are required to complete a mandatory Academic Integrity Tutorial in order to ensure that they know—and fully understand—what’s expected of them in the classroom. You can find the Tutorial on Minerva under the Student Menu and you must complete it before the end of your first semester at McGill. Failure to complete the Tutorial will result in a registration hold for the following semester.
A one-stop portal connecting you to your McGill email account, Minerva, myCourses, library resources, myFuture (McGill's job search tool) and more!
