Cancellation of registration

If you decide not to return to McGill in September or January after you have registered, drop all your courses on Minerva or submit a written request to cancel your registration.

In your letter include your McGill student number and your signature. Enclose your McGill student ID card and forward it to the following address:

Service Point, Enrolment Services
McGill University

Please check with Service Point for the deadline to cancel your registration. If you drop all courses or your request is received by this date, your registration will be deleted from our records and no administrative charge will be assessed. After this date you may still drop all your courses on Minerva but a minimum administrative charge is assessed.

Your Record

If you withdraw from all your courses on Minerva BEFORE the deadline for University Withdrawal, you will not have a  record of study created for this term and your student record will remain inactive.  Your McGill email account will become inactive after 30 days.

If you were granted a University Withdrawal after the deadline, your record will indicate "Withdrew from the University" and the date on which your withdrawal became effective. Your McGill email account will become inactive  after 30 days.

Please note that if you withdraw in the Fall term, you are considered withdrawn from the entire academic year and your Winter term is deleted.


Should you wish to return to McGill in the future, please refer to our OASIS website for information about readmission procedures.
