Academic Records from Institutions of Higher-Learning (e.g., transcripts)

Academic records from every post-secondary institution (including exchange or study-abroad sessions) are required as part of the supporting documents of your application.  Unofficial copies can be uploaded via your Minerva account (see below).  Official copies need only to be sent if requested. The list of institutions that appear on your checklist are populated by the name of institutions in your application (step 1).  Be sure to indicate all institutions attended.

Please note that unofficial copies of transcripts must include the following information:
University name
Name and type of program
Student's name
Grades, credits, semesters/terms for each course

Additional policies

  • The Admissions Office reserves the right to require official academic records at any time during the admissions process, and refuse admission, or rescind any offer of admission made if discrepancies between unofficial and official record(s) are found. Official transcripts sent to McGill University become the property of the University and will not be returned or forwarded to other institutions.
  • Transcripts written in a language other than English or French must be accompanied by a certified translation.
  • If requested, official copies of transcripts should be sent to: Office of Admissions, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, McGill University 1010 Sherbrooke St. W., Suite 1210 Montreal, QC, CANADA  H3A 2R7

How to upload your (unofficial) transcripts

Once an application has been received (i.e., step 1 has been completed), upload a clear copy of each of your transcripts via your Minerva account. Please note the exceptions below. These transcripts are considered unofficial but will be used for the preliminary review of your application. For more detailed uploading instructions and technical information consult the Guidelines regarding uploading unofficial transcripts at Uploading your documents or see the Frequently asked questions for document upload procedures
