Fees and Withdrawal from the University

Fees and Withdrawal from the University

If you decide not to attend the term(s) in which you are registered, you must officially withdraw from the University in accordance with Regulations Concerning University Withdrawal. Otherwise, you are liable for all applicable tuition and other fees.

If you use Minerva to drop your last course between September 1 (January 1 for the Winter term) and the end of the withdrawal period with full refund, you will be deemed withdrawn from the University. You are automatically charged a registration cancellation fee of $200 (or your registration deposit fee, whichever is higher) to cover administrative costs of registration.

If you stop attending classes without dropping your courses, you are liable for all applicable tuition and other fees. See Regulations Concerning University Withdrawal.

If you are considering withdrawal from the University, please review the information found on the following Student Accounts web page for further details of the financial repercussions of withdrawal: www.mcgill.ca/student-accounts/your-account/withdrawals.

Refund Procedures

Refund Procedures

You are not automatically refunded your credit balance as many students choose to keep the balance on account for use for a future term. You may, however, request your credit balance to be refunded at any time, after the course withdrawal with full refund period has passed. For directions on requesting your refund online in Minerva, see www.mcgill.ca/student-accounts/your-account/requesting-refund.
