If you are new to McGill, you must create an account using the McGill web-based application system (the "Web-App" system) to build and submit your application to the University.  A step-by-step guide is found here.  If you require assistance, use the Help function found at the top right of each page or contact Enrolment Services at 514-398-7878.

If you already have a Minerva account, log into the Minerva system and use the Applicant menu to create your application.  Ensure that your contact information is up-to-date before completing the application.

Application Confirmation:  A confirmation of your application, including a 9-digit McGill identification (ID) number, will be sent via e-mail after the Web-App system runs its cycle (after 9 p.m.).  This means that applications submitted after 9 p.m. will not be processed until the next cycle.  This McGill ID number will grant you access to the University's Minerva system, required for the subsequent steps of your application.  To learn more about McGill's Minerva system, you can review the information at Minerva for Guests or read the IT knowledge base article.


N.B. ► Although the language of instruction is English at McGill University, applicants may submit an application in French or English.
