Required 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 PDF format directly by the referees (using a professional email address) to omfsprogram.dentistry [at] mcgill.ca. 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.
