Transfer-readmission

General information

Unless otherwise stipulated, McGill students who have not graduated and wish to apply to transfer into another undergraduate faculty (Inter-Faculty), change their program within their current undergraduate faculty (Intra-Faculty), or apply for readmission after a university withdrawal, can do so on the Minerva Faculty Transfers / Readmission Menu (IFT/Readmission), found under Student Records on the Student Menu.

Faculty Transfer or Readmission is not automatic or guaranteed.

Students may NOT use the Minerva Inter-Faculty Transfer application to transfer to the following faculties: Dentistry, Law, Medicine, Graduate Studies and Continuing Studies. Students wishing to apply to these faculties must complete the online admission application found at www.mcgill.ca/undergraduate-admissions/.

Once an application has been submitted in the IFT/Readmission module in Minerva, any changes or cancellation must be handled in writing to the appropriate Student Affairs office.

For Faculty-specific Inter/Intra-Faculty or Readmission guidelines or procedures, please click on the Faculty/School links in the tables below.

Notes

  • Students who were registered in the School of Continuing Studies after their last semester in an undergraduate degree program do not have access to the Minerva forms. Students whose last registered term in an undergraduate degree program is prior to September 2002 do not have access to the Minerva forms. If you are a student in either of these situations please contact Service Point.
  • The IFT/Readmission menu is to be used only if your undergraduate degree has not been granted. If you have already graduated with an undergraduate degree from McGill, and you wish to apply to a second undergraduate degree in a different Faculty, you submit a new admission application at www.mcgill.ca/undergraduate-admissions/.
  • Readmission to the Desautels Faculty of Management for the Winter Term is restricted to students who were previously enrolled in the Desautels Faculty of Management, i.e. no Inter-Faculty Transfer requests are accepted for the Winter Term.
  • A student wishing to withdraw their request for inter-faculty transfer after having accepted the offer to transfer into the new faculty to remain in their original home faculty, should advise both faculties of their new decision in writing. The original home faculty will update the student’s IFT application status on Minerva from ‘Offer Accepted’ to ‘Faculty Cancelled’ and inform the Management of Academic Records Unit, Enrolment Services of any required record changes.
