McMaster Intersession Learning
McMaster’s Intersession learning courses are designed to provide students with the tools to succeed in a rapidly changing world. With a focus on interdisciplinary, experiential and community-based learning, this is a unique opportunity to help students broaden their learning, develop their critical thinking skills and build relationships with their peers.
A dynamic class does not follow the regular start and end dates, drop and add dates or withdrawal dates for undergraduate students. After you enrol in the class, you will be able to check the dates by clicking on the ‘Deadlines’ for the class under ‘My Class Schedule’ in the Student Centre.
Interested in Intersession Learning? INSPIRE 1A03, 2CC3, 3EL3 are OSAP eligible for the spring/summer term.
Full-Time OSAP recipients:

- Tuition fees for INSPIRE 3EL1 are OSAP eligible if you are enrolled in a full time or part time course load without INSPIRE 3EL1
- Must be enrolled in a full-time course load for the spring, summer, and spring/summer sessions with INSPIRE 1A03.
No full-time OSAP application for the fall/winter term(s)

Students who are enrolled in INSPIRE courses and are not eligible for OSAP may be eligible to apply for the Summer Undergraduate Bursary.
You are considered full-time if you’re taking 60% or more of a full course load (or 40% if you have a permanent disability).
Where can I find my program’s full-time course load units?
- Obtain your program’s full-time course load units from the Undergraduate Calendar
- You can also use our course load calculator
How do I calculate full-time course load if I am taking courses in both Spring & Summer?
- Divide the number of units you’re enrolled in by the 100% course load for one term.
- Example: you are enrolled in 9 units, a 100% course load is 15 units: 9/15 = .6 or 60% course load
How do I calculate full-time course load if I am only taking courses in one of the spring OR summer session?
- Divide the 100% course load for one term by 2 and then divide the number of units you’re enrolled in by that number.
- Example: you are enrolled in 3 units, a 100% course load for one term is 15 units (15/2 = 7.5): 3/7.5 = .4 or 40% course load.
