Official Transcripts

McGill students and alumni or former students who were registered or graduated from McGill as of 1972 or later can request an Official Transcript in PDF format (eTranscript) to send to educational institutions, employers, funding agencies, immigration authorities, or any third party. 

Official eTranscripts are digitally signed and certified PDF documents that can be delivered electronically worldwide in as little as 15 minutes from when you place your order!

Effective May 2024, McGill students and graduates have 24/7 access to view and/or pay a fee to securely share their official documents such as their eTranscript, letters or forms with other colleges or universities, government, employers or third parties in their digital wallet via MyCreds™. Documents issued through MyCreds™ are tamper-evident and cryptographically signed, making them authentic and official.

MyCreds™ is a National Network, shared service and platform that provides students and graduates access to a secure, online, password protected learner credential wallet owned by the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC). This Network will replace McGill’s previous official electronic transcript provider, the National Student Clearinghouse.

McGill students and alumni will continue to use Minerva to request their electronic official transcripts and the document will be issued to them in the new MyCreds™ platform for sharing. Now, students and alumni can also submit requests for forms and custom letters, that must be processed by Enrolment Services, to be added to their MyCreds™ digital wallet and shared with any third party.
