Pursuing university studies involves submitting an admission application. Many people may find this important step to be stressful, especially if this is their first experience or contact with the university. This page makes sure you cover all the bases when applying.

Preparing your applications file

Be sure to follow these steps before accessing the application:

  1. Choose the right program
  2. Verify eligibility conditions
  3. Respect official deadlines
  4. Submit supporting documents
  5. Plan for interviews and tests

Starting your admission application

Once you have completed the previous steps, all you need to do now is to submit your application online! 

  1. Use the Programs and courses menu or the search bar to find and review the program description for the study program that matches your interests.
    • Select the appropriate session, and if necessary, the area of study or option for the program that matches your interests.

    • Click on Add to your application. You will see a small number displayed at the top of the page, indicating that the program has been added to the application.

    • Click on Apply now to display your program choice and the associated fees.

  2. Sign in, either by creating a visitor account (if this is your first UdM admission application) or by using your umontreal account.
  3. Complete the sections about your profile, your previous studies, and provide any other information required.
  4. Go to the payment section to pay any application fees (if required) and submit your application.
Did you know?

You can submit several applications for the same study session (up to a maximum of 10 program choices per session, for all study levels). Be sure to use the same account and choose the same session to avoid paying the base fee again per session.

Completing an application

Since your application is automatically saved, you can stop at any time and continue later by signing into your account. 

Is this your first time applying? Keep in mind that you will need to upload documents through the Student Centre (Centre étudiant) once you have submitted your application and paid your fees.
