Newly Admitted Students

I have received an offer of admission

Congratulations on receiving an offer! The Admissions Committee looks forward to you joining us at McGill.

What should I do now?

Once you receive your offer of admission, read your admission letter and the information on McGill's Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website carefully. You will also receive an electronic package from the Faculty of Law.

Accepting our offer

To officially accept an offer of admission from McGill, you must pay the confirmation deposit via your uApply account.

Legal documents

You will need to provide legal documents that affect your tuition and registration status. If McGill does not have proof of residency documents, you will be charged international student tuition fees. Please consult the Legal Documents page.

I've accepted the offer of admission! What's next?

1. Plan your arrival at McGill, and in Montreal

All incoming graduate students must attend a group advising session prior to the start of the fall semester. While you must be at McGill during orientation week, you may wish to arrive earlier in order to settle into your new home and city.

Prior to your departure for Montreal, international students are strongly encouraged to consult the Pre-Arrival Guide.

2. Register as a McGill student

You must register for your courses through McGill's online registration system (Minerva) prior to your arrival at McGill. You will receive additional information from the Faculty of Law via email in June.

3. Enjoy Orientation activities

Orientation activities, primarily planned the week prior to the start of classes, allow you to meet your colleagues and to explore your new academic home. Visit our Orientation page for additional details.

For any questions, please contact us at [at] We look forward to meeting you in September!
