All students register by Minerva, McGill's web-based registration system. For detailed information about registration, refer to the eCalendar under University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Registration; Welcome to McGill at www.mcgill.ca/newstudents; the Internships and Student Affairs website, www.mcgill.ca/edu-sao; and to the Student Records website, www.mcgill.ca/students/records.
Students who fall into Unsatisfactory Standing at the end of the academic year will have their registration cancelled and may not re-register in the Faculty. Students who can provide proof of extenuating circumstances may appeal to the Director of Internships and Student Affairs for readmission. Please refer to the eCalendar under University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Readmission and to www.mcgill.ca/edu-sao for Faculty-specific information.
Students who have an outstanding fee balance from a previous term or outstanding fines will not be permitted to register. Students with financial problems should consult the Student Aid Office, Brown Student Services Building.
Students who decide not to return to McGill must withdraw from all of their courses on Minerva or inform the Internships and Student Affairs Office in writing. For further information, refer to the eCalendar under University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Course Withdrawal and University Withdrawal.
Students in Faculty of Education programs should register for the courses as outlined in the individual program overviews and advising material available on the Internships and Student Affairs Office website at www.mcgill.ca/edu-sao/new/advising for new students, and www.mcgill.ca/edu-sao/current/advising for current students. For more information on registration, see the eCalendar under University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Registration.
Students in the B.Ed. programs who are required to be registered for Field Experience should consult Student Teaching/Field Experience for more information.
Some courses may require special permission. Students should consult the eCalendar publication and/or the Class Schedule on Minerva well in advance of the Course Change period to determine if permission is required of the instructor, the department, or the Faculty for any course they wish to take.
A number of courses have prerequisites that must be completed prior to course registration. Permission to waive a prerequisite requirement must be given in writing by an academic adviser.
There are three course withdrawal periods, published on the University website, www.mcgill.ca/importantdates, and in the eCalendar under University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Course Withdrawal. Students may, under exceptional circumstances, be granted permission to withdraw after the published deadlines. Such students should contact the Internships and Student Affairs Office for further information.
Students withdrawing from a Field Experience should refer to Student Teaching/Field Experience.
