Warning: Scam email phishing for your personal information: Please delete immediately. Please note that an email asking for personal information such as McGill Username and Password, and possibly your Date of Birth, has been sent to many users. It may also threaten to delete one of your McGill accounts if you do not reply with the information. This email does NOT come from a McGill source -- it is a fraudulent attempt to gain access to your personal information. McGill never solicits any such information by email. If you receive this email, please delete it immediately. If you have already replied to this email and sent your personal information, you need to reset your McGill Password and Minerva PIN (and any other passwords that relate to your Date of Birth) as soon as possible. Instructions for changing your McGill Password and Minerva PIN can be found in the McGill IT Knowledge Base and also by clicking HELP on the Minerva Login screen.
The course evaluation period for regularly scheduled courses (lectures that end the week of April 7) will be available to students for completion on Minerva from March 17-April 12, 2008, inclusive.
Minerva and Banner are not available at this time (12:55 pm). Further updates to come.
