Readmission

Readmission

To return to McGill after an absence from a Fall and/or Winter term of an academic year, you must submit an application for readmission using Minerva's Faculty Transfer/Readmission Menu. In your application, state the reasons for your absence from the University and give a summary of your activities during that period.

If you withdrew because of illness, you must provide your faculty Student Affairs Office with a medical note to support your application for readmission, stating that you are ready to resume studies.

You must be aware of McGill's time limits for the completion of degrees.

To return to a different faculty after an absence, apply for a faculty transfer using Minerva's Faculty Transfer/Readmission Menu. For more details on the faculty transfer or readmission process, see www.mcgill.ca/students/transfer-readmission.

Note for International students: International students in Computer Science, Engineering, Law, Management, or Science who apply for readmission after an absence of four consecutive terms or more will be charged the tuition rate in effect for newly admitted students in their term of readmission.
