Due to a problem with the registration system, students who had registration holds that are now ended cannot use the Class Schedule form to register for these courses. Instead, please use the Quick Add or Drop Course Sections form in Minerva until the situation is resolved.
Due to high volume of usage at the beginning of term, the myMcGill portal has been experiencing intermittent problems. To remedy this situation we have established a cap on the number of simultaneous connections permitted. If you try to log in when this cap is exceeded, you will be directed to the following web page: http://www.mcgill.ca/it/it-mcgill/when-mymcgill-unavailable
Some students are not seeing the full list of courses for which they are registered on the myCourses home page. System administrators are working to rectify this issue and expect it to be resolved by tomorrow morning (January 6, 2011). A status update will be posted in myCourses and on the IT Services page Announcements to alert you when the course synchronization is complete.

There is currently a problem with Minerva Reports. Technical teams are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The ICS Service Desk will be closed for the holiday break, from 6:30 pm Wednesday, December 22 to 8:00 am Monday, January 3. Prepare now by ensuring you can access all the IT systems you will need -- email, myCourses, Minerva, Libraries, etc.
