Course Changes

Course Changes: Summer

All students must use Minerva to make any changes to their course selection. You can use Minerva to add or drop courses at any time up to and including the fourth scheduled day of classes (which include lectures and laboratories). See the specific dates outlined in Key Dates, Summer 2017.

Inter-University Transfer (IUT) students wishing to drop or withdraw from their course(s) should use Minerva; cancelling the course on BCI (Bureau de coopération interuniversitaire, previously known as CREPUQ) is not sufficient. If you want to take a different course you must reapply on the BCI site at www.crepuq.qc.ca and, upon approval, register for the course using Minerva.

You are responsible for all courses in which you are registered unless you formally drop the courses online using Minerva before the deadline date. Neither notification of the course instructor nor discontinuing class attendance is sufficient. Please see Refunds for information on refunds.

Course Drop and Withdrawal

Course Drop and Withdrawal: Summer Studies

You may drop (with refund) a course on Minerva up to and including the fourth (4th) scheduled class, and withdraw (without refund) from a course from the 5th to the 9th scheduled class*. A withdrawal means that a grade of "W" will appear on your record and you will not be eligible for a fee refund. See the specific dates outlined in Key Dates, Summer 2017.

Students who do not attend classes and examinations and/or who do not formally withdraw will receive a grade of "J" on their transcripts. If, after the ninth day of class, illness or special circumstances force you to stop attending class, permission may be granted for an official withdrawal (without refund). In such cases, you must apply in writing to the Associate Dean/Director of the faculty in which you are registered. If permission is granted, a grade of "W" or "WF" will be assigned.

Note for the Faculties of Arts and Science (including B.A. & Sc.): Requests are made at the Service Point (3415 McTavish). However, it is important that you also see a Faculty adviser in Dawson Hall to talk about your options and the effects that your request may have on your studies. For more information, see www.mcgill.ca/students/advising.

If the course is cancelled due to insufficient enrolment, fees are refunded in full. There are no refunds under any circumstance if you withdraw from a course after the fourth scheduled day of classes (which include lectures and laboratories).

* Note: The add/drop and withdrawal deadlines may be different for intensive courses. Please consult the course description for details.
