To return to McGill after a university withdrawal from a Fall and/or Winter term of an academic year, you must apply for readmission using Minerva's Faculty Transfer/Readmission Menu. Readmission is not automatic or guaranteed. In your application, state the reasons for your absence from the University and give a summary of your activities during that period.
Newly admitted students are only eligible for readmission if they withdrew from the University after the withdrawal with refund deadline.
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.
We encourage students to complete their degrees, particularly those who are close to completion. Students who are readmitted after a period of absence are normally subject to the program and degree requirements in effect at the time of readmission. In such cases, determining the degree requirements for completion is at the discretion of the readmitting faculty.
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 and deadlines, see mcgill.ca/student-records/transfer-readmission/.
