Congratulations and Welcome!
You have been offered admission to one of Canada’s leading research-intensive universities. Our graduates are acknowledged world-wide for their excellence in research, business and community service, and McGill is committed to providing you with the services and guidance you need to reach your goals. Accept your offer, register with us, and get ready to succeed!
I’ve just been admitted into McGill University, what should I do now?
- Accept your offer of admission on-line using your uApply account, and pay the confirmation deposit where applicable.
- Arrange for an official copy of your complete university academic record to be submitted directly by each institution you have attended. These official transcripts must be addressed to:
Management of Academic Records
3415 McTavish Street
Canada, H3A 0C8
Note: Due to disruptions in mailing and courier services caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the best delivery method for the time being is electronic. Many institutions are readily providing electronic copies of official transcripts and proofs of degree. These can be sent to officialschooldocs [at] mcgill.ca. If your institution is unable to provide electronic copies, printed copies of official transcripts can be submitted once mailing services resume, or once you arrive on campus this Fall.
- Check the second page of your offer of admission letter and ensure that you do not have any outstanding conditions. Please take the necessary steps to address all outstanding conditions as early as possible.
- Submit legal documents that could affect your tuition status.
- Use MINERVA to update your address, telephone number, and personal information.
- Review the steps to a successful registration, and then use MINERVA to register.
