The deposit is refundable up to May 15 for international students and up to June 15 for non-Quebec Canadians and Quebec residents applying to the M.D.,C.M., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D./M.B.A. programs. For students admitted to the Med-P program, notification of acceptance of the offer must be accompanied by a deposit of CAD$300, which will be applied to the student's tuition. For Med-P applicants, the deposit is refundable up to July 15.

Candidates who accept a place on the wait list, therefore, must be reachable at all times and keep their contact information up-to-date in Minerva.
Decision by Proxy
Students may designate a delegate (“proxy”) to accept or refuse an offer on their behalf, should s/he be unavailable for a period of time. The student must submit a written statement to this effect and must include signatures from both the applicant and the proxy
