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 marie.vigouroux [at] mcgill.ca (this email address). 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. Important: Official transcripts sent to McGill University become the property of the University and will not be returned or forwarded to other institutions.
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:
3415 McTavish Street
Room MS 13
Canada, H3A 0C8
2. A Minimum of Three Reference Reports or Letters
- One from the Dean of your Dental School
- One from Director of the Orthodontic Division of your Dental School
- One from a dental professional, preferably a person involved in active research, 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 marie.vigouroux [at] mcgill.ca (this email address).
4. Letter of Intent
All applicants are required to submit a Letter of Intent to assist the Program Director develop a fuller understanding of the applicant and the personal characteristics, experiences and goals that make the applicant suitable for this program. Candidates are invited to discuss any information about themselves that might assist the Committee in this task.
PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR McGILL I.D. NUMBER WHICH WAS ASSIGNED TO YOU ON ALL SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS.
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.
