Employers, employment agencies, academic institutions, and others requiring confirmation of issuance of a student's McGill University credential and graduation date must submit their request through AuraData.
Please Note: Auradata can only confirm degrees granted in 1979 and after – if the student graduated prior to 1979, other verification documents are available to them such as a transcript or a copy of their diploma. Additionally, Major information (e.g. Economics) is only available in the AuraData system for students who graduated in 2003 and later.
AuraData, a Canadian company specializing in secure online degree verification, is now providing these services to McGill University. Subscribers to AuraData are able to confirm the post-secondary education claims of prospective employees efficiently online, 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Confidentiality is a primary concern of McGill University and of AuraData. A signed authorization from the McGill graduate is required by AuraData before any information is released to a third party.
The AuraData system will only confirm:
- Issuance of a McGill University credential (e.g. BA, PhD, etc)
- The date on which the credential was conferred to the student. Note that this date will be listed as one of the following:
- October 1st – for graduates who complete their degree requirements during the Summer term, McGill Senate confirms graduation in October, with the actual ceremony taking place in November.
- February 1st - for graduates who complete their degree requirements during the Fall term, McGill Senate confirms graduation in February, with the actual ceremony taking place in June.
- May 1st - for graduates who complete their degree requirements during the Winter term, McGill Senate confirms graduation in May, with the actual ceremony taking place in June
