Official documents to submit

All documents submitted must be official, meaning that they must be original documents or true copies certified by an authorized person. Documents will not be considered official if the “certified copy” endorsement is reproduced in a photocopy.

Original diplomas will be returned to you if you live in Canada or the United States.

If you wish to recover any other original documents you have sent, please enclose a preaddressed return envelope with prepaid postage affixed with your submission.

If not, the original documents submitted with the application will remain the property of Université de Montréal. They will be kept for one year. You may recover them by submitting a request to the Registrar's Office.

Time limits

Please note that it is important to send us your documents within 10 business days of your application submission.

Failure to do so may result in the cancellation of your application.

Documents to submit

Most departments ask applicants to graduate studies to provide letters of recommendation to support their applications. Depending on the program, additional documents may be requested to assess your file. Please consult the description page of the program that interests you to find out which documents you must submit with your application.

Centre étudiant "À faire" section

After you submit your application, you will find a list of documents to submit in the "À faire" section of your file in the Centre étudiant. Please note that this list will be updated only once your application has been processed. If you have already submitted the documents listed there and they continue to appear in your file, simply disregard the list.

DOCUMENTS THAT SUPPORT IDENTITY

Quebecers

If you were born in Quebec and have a Quebec diploma of collegial studies (DEC) or if you are studying or have studied at Université de Montréal, you are not required to provide a copy of your birth certificate. You may be asked to submit it at a later date, however.

If you do not have the original document, please attach a copy to the application and send us the original document as soon as possible.

Birth certificates and official documents that contain the applicant's family name, all given names, date of birth, sex, and place of birth (city, country), as well as the family and given names of the applicant's parents are accepted.

Canadians outside Quebec and international applicants

A copy of the applicant's birth certificate (official document) containing the applicant's family name, all given names, date of birth, sex, and place of birth (city, country), as well as the family and given names of the applicant's parents must be submitted.

If you do not have the original document, please attach a copy to the application and send us the original document as soon as possible.

If you were born in a country other than Canada and have acquired Canadian citizenship, you must provide copies of the front and back of your certificate of Canadian citizenship.

If you have acquired permanent resident status, you must provide copies of the front and back of your permanent resident card or of the IMM1000 or IMM5292 form, signed and dated. To prove your status as a Quebec resident, you must submit your Québec Selection Certificate (CSQ) or an official letter from the Quebec Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion attesting that you have been issued a CSQ.

If you have not been issued one, please consult the Attestation of Québec Resident Status form to determine which documents you must submit.

The steps to obtain a Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) and a study permit can be consulted on UdeM's Foreign Students Office website.

If you are a French citizen, you must provide a copy of your passport or a French identity card (front and back) to qualify for an exemption from increased tuition under the agreement between France and Quebec, if applicable.

TRANSCRIPTS AND DEGREES OR DIPLOMAS

Studies in Quebec

If you have a Quebec diploma of collegial studies (DEC), you are not required to provide your college transcript because we will obtain the information directly from the MELS.

If you have attended university, to support your application, you must provide a copy of the official final transcript of your grades in all your university studies, including uncompleted programs, university exchange programs or courses, and distance education, as well as any document attesting to the issuing of a degree or diploma.

If you have attended the École Polytechnique or HEC Montréal, you must submit a transcript, as described above. If you have no official documents, please submit a photocopy of your most recent transcripts and ask the institutions concerned to forward the official documents to us.

If you have studied at Université de Montréal, you must provide your transcript (unofficial copy which you may print from your Centre étudiant file).

Studies outside Quebec

Please attach a copy of the official transcript of grades from your last years of secondary school and all other subsequent years of study at university or elsewhere. These transcripts must provide a detailed report of your grades from each of those years. You must also submit a copy of any degrees or diplomas you have obtained and, if applicable, a copy of your grades on your graduating exams or competitions.

International students

Upon arrival in Montréal, all foreign students must finalize their file at UdeM's Foreign students office by providing the entry documents required to study; failure to do so will result in their registration in the current session being cancelled permanently. For more details about the deregistration rules, consult the Foreign students office (Bureau des étudiants internationaux) website.
