During the period in which McGill has committed to offering remote instruction, the Scholarships and Student Aid Office is pleased to offer virtual services.

Important Updates for Students Applying for In-Course Financial Aid: Fall 2021

Our 2021-2022 In-Course Aid Application opens in Minerva on August 1st. In an effort to expedite aid, we are performing more online decisions without appointments. Please note a few significant changes to our process so that we may best serve you and all students with financial need on a timely basis
1. You must submit your In-Course Financial Aid application prior to requesting an appointment.
2. Make sure you elaborate on any extenuating financial circumstances or immediate concerns in the Special Circumstances field on your application.
3. ‘Go back to your app’ frequently! Important instructions and/or online decisions will be added to your application within 2 weeks of submission. From the Financial Aid/Awards menu, under Apply for McGill Financial Aid, click on the “View Status” hyperlink.
4. If you’ve had an appointment with a Financial Aid Counselor during your current degree, we ask you to wait to see if you receive an online decision or are instructed to schedule an appointment. Receiving an online decision means you do not need to make an appointment, however, if you still wish to schedule one (and if not urgent), please Contact Us as of October.
5. If you have never had an appointment with a Financial Aid Counselor during your current degree, or you have urgent need, you may Contact Us to schedule an appointment as soon as you have submitted your application.
