Where and how to submit your legal documents


  • Only standard non-encrypted PDF file formats can be accepted. DO NOT SEND ORIGINALS BY POSTAL MAIL.
  • Resolution no less than 300 dpi. Maximum file size is 3MB per image.
  • Documents must be machine-scanned, digital photographs cannot be accepted.
  • DO NOT crop, annotate, encrypt, secure or otherwise digitally alter your scans. No annotations should be added on or around the image. Specifically for passport submissions: all edges of the passport booklet should be visible in the scan. For example, do not crop out the opposite page facing the photo page.
  • Files shared online cannot be accepted.
  • The file name should be short with NO special characters (for example, French accents such as the circonflexe "ê", etc). We suggest naming the file according to document type and McGill ID number (e.g. birth certificate 260xxxxxx).
  • Indicate your name and McGill ID number in your submission.


Tips when scanning your documents:

  • Review your scan before forwarding to us to ensure the scan is clear and not cut off.
  • When using a uPrint machine on campus, email to yourself first, review, then forward. Follow these links for scanning and emailing instructions for the campus uPrint machines.
