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

Student Services is here for you!

McGill offers a wide variety of services to support student success and well-being.

Government aid

Quebec, Canada, and United States government aid recipients: register for your required number of full-time McGill credits before mid-August to avoid funding delays and optimize your aid!


Federal, provincial and territorial governments offer aid for students with assessed financial need in the form of loans, grants and bursaries.

Canadian students, including those from Quebec, apply directly to their province or territory of residence, while US students can apply for funding offered by their federal government and/or by a number of alternative loan providers. Please note that the Scholarships and Student Aid Office does not administer government aid for International students (non-US) – all related inquiries should be made directly with domestic aid agencies.

It can take 6–8 weeks for government aid applications to be processed. It is recommended that those wishing to apply, do so by June 30 (June 1 for US students) to ensure that their aid arrives in time to pay their fees.

Students experiencing delays in government aid funding should consider applying for a Tuition Payment Deferral.
