To defer your offer of admission to McGill you must submit the designated web form no later than July 31 for the Fall term and December 31 for the Winter term. For further information, contact the deferral [at] mcgill.ca (Deferral Coordinator).
Several conditions apply for deferral and these will be communicated to you once the University receives your official request. The University is only able to approve a limited number of admissions deferral requests in any given term. You must pay your confirmation deposit before you may request an admission deferral.
If you have accepted your offer of admission and registered for courses and now want to defer your admission, you must drop all courses via 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.
