Change of Plans?
Once your Minerva Study Away application is “Faculty Approved”, your McGill student record is updated to non-resident status for the equivalent McGill term(s). Any McGill courses for which you were registered are dropped and cannot be re-instated. You will not be able to register for McGill courses with a non-resident status.
If your plans have changed and you will not be studying at another university, you must cancel your application.
