Sample Communication to Student during COVID-19

Fall 2021 Update: We are not accepting Covid-19 Consent forms for the Fall 2021 semester. Please visit the following McGill websites for more information on the return to campus: Fall 2021: for students, and FAQ for Students.

Sample Communication to international students newly admitted for Winter 2021 and Summer 2021 with award payments to Accounts Payable:

Dear [Student],

Congratulations on your admission to McGill and your award/stipend. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to process payments of some award as intended. As an award recipient, we would like to ensure that you are able to receive/benefit from your award payment(s).

Please note that as a McGill student and award recipient, you are required to register for your upcoming semester(s). In general, full-time registration is required during an award period. Recipients are also required to have updated Minerva with a valid mailing address; as well as, a Canadian bank account in order to deposit awards and/or refunds.

Due to travel restrictions related to COVID-19, it is understandable that setting up a Canadian bank account at this time could be difficult. As such, the University obtained permission from Funding Agencies to modify award payments during this exceptional time.

Please read, complete and return the Student Consent for Modifications to Award Payments during COVID-19, as soon as possible/by DATE if you wish to partake in any option.
