Transcript Information

It is very important to upload official transcripts (including transfer credits) to the Research Portal. This includes McGill transcripts for new students even though no grades are posted. If you upload the wrong documents or if there is a missing or unofficial transcript, your file will be automatically disqualified.  An official transcript is one that comes directly from the institution by mail (not printed from your computer or from your student file).
