SGS 101/201 Completion of these two courses are required  for all graduate students at McMaster.  Regardless of your program choice, you must register online (even full-time and co-op students, once you receive information on your cohort and learning group) and complete before the end of your first term. You run the risk of the university blocking your Student Centre, thus not allowing you to register for courses for the next term.  Do it early to avoid delays and disappointment. November 30


Keep yourself on track with these key dates and you will be well prepared for your first academic term at DeGroote!
