Frequently asked questions

Can I change my personal information that appears in the "Personal Information" tab?

Information on the myFuture Profile page under the Personal Information tab cannot be modified directly on the site. If something is incorrect in this tab, you may update the information in the Minerva Personal Menu. The changes will be reflected in myFuture within 24 hours.

myFuture "Academic Information" page was overwritten! What happened?

Once a semester, as part of the process of loading new students into myFuture, the Academic Information page gets refreshed with up-to-date information from Banner. While McGill students may be enrolled in multiple programs simultaneously, myFuture can only handle one academic program per student. By default, your "Primary" program shown in Banner is copied into myFuture.

If this is not your preference, you can modify your academic profile in myFuture. However, when the academic information is refreshed from Banner each semester, any changes you had previously made to your academic profile in myFuture are overwritten.
