At McMaster, you have the opportunity to explore new and unfamiliar topics through Personal Interest Courses (PIC). PICs were designed so you can explore interests outside of your program without affecting your Cumulative GPA.

What you need to know:

  • If you are pursuing a PIC and would rather keep the numeric grade for the class, you must indicate the course is no longer a PIC on Mosaic by Friday, March 19 (the final date in which a student can withdrawal from a course without failure by default).
  • If you choose to do this, the numeric grade will appear on your transcript.

For more information about the new PIC option, visit the Registrar’s website.

If you have any questions about the PIC option, please email us at
