So I am entering my 5th year of university @ McGill and my adviser has informed me that the 5th course (elective) that I signed up for during the winter term will not count towards the total credit earned + cGPA calculation. if this is so, then is it possible to take that 5th course through online/ or through a different university (concordia) just to fulfill the full course-load requirement? If anyone else has experiences with this please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it Thanks in advance!
