How/where to send your legal documents

Send in all your documents after you have been accepted to McGill and before you arrive on campus. Do not send us originals. Please email, or mail a clear and legible copy (for faxes, please read below). Write your McGill ID on the documents so that we can match them to your record.

You may submit your legal documents by any of the following means:

All students

Note: faxes are not recommended, as your documents may not come through in legible fashion, and you may have to re-send. Email attachment is the preferred means of sending us your documents.
