Fall 2015 – Summer 2016
If you are considering withdrawing from the University, you are strongly encouraged to consult with your adviser and your Student Affairs Office (www.mcgill.ca/students/advising/advisordirectory) before making a final decision.
It is solely your responsibility to initiate University withdrawal by submitting a form or writing to your Student Affairs Office. Neither notification of the course instructor nor discontinuing class attendance is sufficient. The date on which you dropped or withdrew from all courses is entered on Minerva and is the official date of withdrawal, even if you had stopped attending lectures earlier.
If you decide not to attend the term(s) you are registered in, you must officially withdraw from the University within the deadlines indicated. See Withdrawal (W) deadline dates at www.mcgill.ca/importantdates. If you drop or withdraw from your last Fall or Winter course by the end of the add/drop period of that term, you are withdrawn from the University. To return to your studies, you must follow the procedures for readmission. For more information, refer to University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Registration > Readmission.
To withdraw from the University by the deadlines indicated below, you must drop or withdraw from all courses on Minerva.
If you are blocked from dropping or withdrawing from your last course on Minerva, you are required to contact your Student Affairs Office, which will supply any forms necessary to complete the University withdrawal as long as you have not missed the deadline for University withdrawal.
Any applicable fee refunds for the term of withdrawal will be according to Fees and Withdrawal from the University.
Once you withdraw, you must return your ID card to the University as stated in Identification (ID) Cards.
If you withdraw from the University in the Fall term, you are considered to be withdrawn from the entire academic year; i.e., Fall and Winter terms. If you plan on returning for the Winter term, you must follow the procedures for readmission.
