Frequently Asked Questions
Newly Admitted Students- Required Documents
Proof of Citizenship: Incoming students must submit to Service Point all documents to confirm their citizenship. Failure to do this will result in your account being charged international student fees by default: https://mcgill.ca/legaldocuments/.
Official Transcripts and Proof of Graduation: Incoming students are required to submit to Enrollment Services official transcripts. Students must ensure that their transcripts read that the degree has been completed (this is considered proof of graduation). If the transcript does not state that the degree has been conferred, students must submit a diploma. A degree completed within Quebec should send internally/electronically. If the degree has been completed outside of Quebec, students can send their sealed envelope to Enrollment Services (address listed in the offer letter). If the said university does not provide an English transcript, a translated and notarized transcript should be provided to the university.
Academic Tutorial: All incoming students must complete the Academic Tutorial (Minerva- Student Tab-Academic Tutorial). Failure to complete this will result in a hold put on the student’s account.
