2024 Admissions

Complete your application forms and pay the application fee

If you are a new applicant to McGill, you must create an account using the McGill web-based application system (the Online application system) to build and submit your application to the University.

Please view the "How to Apply" video for helpful information on completing and submitting your application :


DEADLINE November 1 for MDCM (university level applicants), March 1 for Med-P Qualifying Year (CEGEP level applicants).

Some important notes before using the system:

Apply online

  • Applicants must apply to the medicine program(s) using McGill University's online application system. A non-refundable application fee is required to complete the application. This fee can be paid by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express).
  • Candidates wishing to apply to a second undergraduate program at McGill (with the exception of law and dentistry) must complete the Minerva application and pay the associated application fee. The Minerva application continues to allow applicants to select two programs for the price of one. Candidates who wish to apply to the medicine program and one undergraduate program only will be able to request an application fee refund after they have applied and paid the fees. Candidates wishing to request a refund should email the Undergraduate Medical Admissions Office with proof of payment for both application fees.
  • You can stop and save your progress at any time. The application will only be processed once you have submitted and paid the application fee.

Submit your supporting documents

  • Submit your supporting documents online. Provide your complete academic history. Include all Universities, CEGEPS, degree-granting colleges and/or University-level schools you attended. You must upload unofficial copies of your transcripts from each Post-secondary institution you have attended, as well as other documents stipulated based on your applicant category in the Applicant Portal. A list of the required documents will be accessible on the online application system. Additional supporting documents submitted by mail or email will not be included in your application.
  • Once you have submitted your application an acknowledgement will be sent to the email address you have included in your application. You will be able to track your application via the online application system.
  • You will receive your confirmation e-mail and McGill ID number 24 hours after you submit your application. Thus, there is a delay before receiving your McGill ID number. If you are a university-level applicant for the MDCM program, you will need to include your McGill ID on your Academic Workbook checklist item before uploading it to the portal.

Submit your test scores

Verify the status of the application in the Applicant Portal

  • Applicants can monitor the status of their application on the Applicant Portal, and log in using the email and password they used to create their application. As the supporting documents are received and recorded, candidates should consult the admissions checklist to see which documents (if any) are missing, incomplete, or illegible. Candidates should consult the Applicant Portal regularly as new items might be requested to complete their file. It is important to respond to requests for further documentation in a timely manner.
  • Candidates are responsible for monitoring the status of their application on the Applicant Portal. **Documents submitted after the application deadline will not be considered.
  • A status of "Provide supporting documents" means that the application is incomplete.  If the application remains incomplete after the deadline for submission of supporting documents, the application will be cancelled. We will not cancel applications that are missing only Casper scores after the deadline (and you have passed the Casper test prior to the application deadline). Candidates will have an application status of "Items outstanding" until we receive their score, after which their file will be reviewed.
  • An "In Review" status means that a candidate’s file is complete and/or under review. The "In Review" status will remain until a final decision is rendered.
  • During peak periods (i.e., close to the deadlines), we receive a high volume of documents. At those times, there may be a delay of up to 3 business days between when a document is received and when it is verified on the Applicant Portal. Taking this delay into consideration, candidates should only contact the Undergraduate Medical Admissions Office  if their file remains incomplete 3 business days past the deadline.


For any additional questions, please refer to the FAQ page and you may contact us at: admissions.med [at] mcgill.ca prior to submitting your application, or through the Get Help button at the bottom of the Applicant Portal after you submit your application.
