Interested in applying to McGill?

At McGill University we are committed to increasing the admission and retention rates of Indigenous students. The Indigenous Community Outreach Associates focus on recruiting prospective students from Indigenous communities across Canada and encouraging them to apply to McGill and pursue higher education. With McGill’s Indigenous Admissions Protocol, Indigenous students can submit additional documentation that would be considered as part of their application to McGill. Prospective First Nations, Inuit, or Métis students should identify themselves as such when filling out their application, which allows them to take advantage.

Residence

The First Peoples' House also serves as a residence for Indigenous Undergraduate and Graduate students.

Admissions

McGill welcomes applications from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. Find admissions information here. 

Tuition

Tuition differs depending on which province you are a resident. We've broken it down for you here. 

Financial Aid

Indigenous-specific financial aid is available in addition to regular financial aid available to all students. 

Indigenous Programs

Indigenous students are eligible to all programs, but McGill offers Indigenous-specific programs too.
