Estimated Minimum Academic Requirements

Competition for entrance scholarships is intense at McGill. 

The table below provides estimated scholarship minima by admit type for the upcoming fall term, for consideration only. Depending on available scholarship funds and the number of applicants, the minima may be lower or higher. This table is for reference purposes only.

You are not guaranteed a scholarship even if you meet the standards listed.

Scholarship decisions are made during the admission process and are based on academic information available at that time. There is no reconsideration of additional or final results.
