Complying with the verification of original documents

When applying for admission, some candidates submit the required documents by uploading them to their Student Centre. The University reserves the right to request the original of an uploaded admissions document, at any time, for verification. You may be randomly asked for verification. In such a case, please refer to this page for the next steps to take.

What do I do when I have been asked for verification in my Student Centre?

As stated in your Student Centre, you must provide the original or a certified copy of the required document(s) by the stated deadline.

  1. Choose the means of transmission
    Choose the means of transmission that suits you best: by mail or registered mail, in person or by electronic transmission between universities in Québec.

  2. Complete the identification form
    You must attach this identification form so we can link your paper documents to your admissions application .

  3. Provide a reply envelope for the return of the documents, if desired

    If you would like to have the original documents returned to you, please send a self-addressed, stamped reply envelope with them. Otherwise, the original documents will remain the property of the Université de Montréal and will be kept on file for one year. You can submit a request for their return to the Office of the Registrar.

  4. Monitor your Student Centre
    Once the documents have been received and verification is completed, the task assigned in your Student Centre will disappear from the to-do list.
