Important Information for Students Intending to Enter Canada from Abroad
International students with a valid study permit or study permit approval letter can now travel to Canada as long as they are registered at a designated learning institution (DLI) with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan. McGill is one of the institutions on the list of DLIs with an approved COVID-19 readiness plan. Students travelling to Canada will need to have a self-quarantine plan to ensure that they can self-isolate for 14 days after arrival.
|Important notice for parents:
It is important for parents to understand that when students accept their offer to live in residences, they are making a commitment for a lease under Quebec law for the full academic year. There will be withdrawal penalties for those who choose to terminate their contract. For more information visit Cancellation Policies.
McGill’s Student Housing and Hospitality Services is here to make your student’s university living experience a safe and memorable one. As a parent or family member, the support you provide will help your student succeed in their new home away from home. Here, we’ve compiled key information that will help you to guide your student throughout this transition.
As soon as your student has accepted his/her offer of admission to McGill, we suggest taking the time to familiarize yourself with the step by step guide for newly admitted students. You’ll find information about university orientation, important dates, course registration, life outside of class and much more!
