Q: When will I receive my Teaching Certification?

A: Your Brevet will be sent to the mailing address which you have indicated on both Minerva and on your application. It should arrive in late summer/early fall from MELS for May/June graduates.

Q: I need to have some documents for a job interview. How do I do this?

A: If your potential employer requires a letter of attestation in lieu of your Brevet please use Minerva to print a "Proof of Graduation" letter.  If this does not meet their needs, please email sao [dot] education [at] mcgill [dot] ca with the details of your request.  Please note that letters will only be provided if specifically required by an employer; most local employers will accept your official transcript and understand that there is normally a delay to receive your Brevet.  If you are missing your copies of your student teaching assessment forms please contact the student teaching placement coordinator for your program.
