McGill must receive all proofs of citizenship, requests for Quebec residency, international fee exemptions, and immigration status changes by the end of the last day of classes of a current term for them to take effect for that term. All requests received after the last day of classes will be processed but your fees will only be lowered for the following term.
McGill cannot issue you an ID card until all of your documents have been received. Your ID card is essential to use many services on campus, and to take your final exams.
If your Permanent Code is not issued by October 15 (Fall term) or February 15 (Winter term), a hold will be added to your record until McGill has received the necessary documents. This hold will prevent you from registering or dropping any courses and from obtaining your official transcript. If you are registered in one term or in a one-year program, the University may put a hold on your record earlier in the term.
If your tuition fees are reduced as a result of the document review process, McGill will waive the difference on any accumulated late payment or interest charges.
