Supporting Documents

Applicants are required to use the document upload feature on Minerva to ensure their documents are added to their file. All documents can be uploaded except for letters of reference; these need to be sent in a PDF format directly by the referees (using a professional email address) to omfsprogram.dentistry [at] mcgill.ca (Susan Young).

Do NOT mail or fax a copy of the documents that you have already uploaded to your application—doing so will slow down the review of your application.

1. Official Transcripts of all previous university education

Applicants may upload a copy of their unofficial transcript via Minerva. If offered admission, at that time, students must make arrangements with their college and/or university to send official transcripts to McGill. 

Current McGill University students are not required to send transcripts by mail. McGill's admitting office obtains these directly. All other applicants must make arrangements with their college and/or university to send official transcripts to McGill.

Official copies of transcripts can be sent to the McGill Documentation Centre:

McGill University

Student Records

3415 McTavish Street
Room MS 13
Montreal, Quebec
Canada, H3A 0C8

2. A Minimum of Three Reference Reports or Letters

  • One from the Dean of your Dental School
  • One from an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon whom you have worked with or the Residency Program Director at your school
  • One from a dental professional who is familiar with your academic ability and who have agreed to supply references

The reference letters must be sent in a PDF format directly by the referee via a professional email address to Susan Young at omfsprogram.dentistry [at] mcgill.ca.

3. CV

4. Letter of Intent


Please note that all documents submitted to McGill University in support of an application to be admitted, including, but not limited to transcripts, diplomas, letters of reference and test scores (in paper or electronic format), become the property of McGill University and will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution.

PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR McGILL I.D. NUMBER WHICH WAS ASSIGNED TO YOU ON ALL SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS.
