We encourage all First Nations, Inuit and Métis applicants to identify themselves on their application form and to submit a personal statement, as well as letters of recommendation and a résumé. This will allow admissions decision-makers to use McGill's Aboriginal admission evaluation process, and take the educational experiences particular to members of an Aboriginal community into consideration.
Self-identification and provision of supporting documents is entirely optional for Aboriginal applicants, and can in no way negatively impact the admission decision. McGill recognizes that Aboriginal applicants, their communities and connections between the two are extremely varied. For some, Aboriginal identity and community connection runs deep, for others it is less significant. If you consider yourself as First Nations, Inuit or Métis, we hope that you will self-identify on your McGill application.
