Course Withdrawals and Refunds

Course Withdrawals and Refunds

Once registered for a course, you are responsible for the fees. If you decide not to follow the course, you must officially withdraw.

Simply not attending classes or informing the instructor does not constitute an official withdrawal.

How to Withdraw from a Course

How to Withdraw from a Course

You can withdraw from a course in one of two ways:

Revision, June 2011. Start of revision.

  • Online using Minerva (Registration menu)
  • In-person by completing a "Course Change Form" available at www.mcgill.ca/conted/studentres/forms and bringing it to the Client Services Office.

Add/Drop Period

Add/Drop Period

You can change sections, add and drop courses only during the add/drop period. You will be charged a $20 administrative fee for each course dropped. Refer to the Important Dates Supplement for specific add/drop dates. Courses dropped before and during the Late Registration and add/drop period will not show on your record.

Withdrawing from a course – Grade of W

Withdrawing from a course – Grade of W

There are two withdrawal periods for the Fall and Winter terms; one with a refund and one without a refund.

It is very important that you take note of the deadlines for obtaining a refund.

If you miss the fee refund deadline, you are responsible for all course fees. During both withdrawal periods, you may withdraw from course(s) using Minerva. You will be given a grade of "W", which does not affect your CGPA. Failure to officially withdraw will result in a grade of "J" (incomplete/failure) which counts as "0" in GPA calculations.

Official registration and withdrawal dates are published before the start of each term. Refer to the Important Dates Supplement for specific dates.
