To defer your offer of admission to McGill you must make an official request no later than August 31 for the Fall term and December 31 for the Winter term, addressed to:
- Deferral Coordinator
- Enrolment Services
- Service Point
- 3415 McTavish Street
- Montreal, QC H3A 0C8
- Fax: 514-398-4193
- Email: deferral [at] mcgill.ca
Please note that several conditions apply for deferral. These conditions and deadlines will be communicated to you once the University receives your official request.
If you have accepted your offer of admission and registered for courses and now want to defer your admission, you must withdraw from McGill by dropping those courses via Minerva (www.mcgill.ca/minerva) by the above deadlines and before submitting a deferral request. If the University grants your request for deferral, your registration deposit will be transferred to the deferred term.
If you do not request a deferral by the above deadlines, you will have to reapply for the next available admission term. If you are a registered student and you withdraw after the deadline, you must request readmission through your faculty. For more details, see Readmission.
