Concordia University

Follow the steps below to prepare an application to Concordia. Once you’ve decided which program you want to apply to and have reviewed all admission requirements, including language proficiency and international requirements, you are ready to move onto the next step. 

This guide will lead you through the online application process.

Please note:

  • You may save your application at any point, allowing you to partially complete the process (if necessary) and return to it later. 
  • Be sure to have a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) or Interac card ready for the application fee ($100 CAD) and a valid email address for correspondence.
Application assessment period

When your application is complete and you’ve added all supporting documents to your file, we start to consider your application. You will receive a response anywhere from 48 hours for Cegep students to eight weeks or more for international students. Because the admissions process varies for each student and program, we cannot give specific dates for a decision. See more details about the application assessment period.

If you apply for admission to a semester in the distant future (for example, to start a year from the time you apply), we will defer our decision until we receive the grades for any courses that you have not yet completed.

If we require further supporting documents, we’ll contact you to request that you upload electronic copies online. Sign into and go to My Student Centre. Find the “To Do List” on the right hand side of the screen. Click Upload Document. Choose the type of document you’d like to upload. (You don’t need to upload all the documents listed in the drop-down list, only the documents required to support your application.)

File types that can be uploaded include:

  • Adobe Acrobat document (*.pdf)
  • Image files (*.bmp, *.gif, *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.tif)
  • Microsoft Word document (*.doc, *.docx)
  • Rich Text File (*.rtf)
  • Text File (*.txt)

Files can be up to 5 MB each.

Once you submit the required document, we will review your file again and remove that item from your “To Do List”.

  • You won’t be able to see the documents you’ve already uploaded – you will only be able to see the documents you still need to upload.
  • Please do not upload a document more than once.
  • Once you submit the required document, your “To Do List” will be updated once we have reviewed your file. Please note that it may take up to 10 working days to update your file.

Letters of acceptance

If you can see through My Student Centre that you have been admitted, congratulations! Your official offer letter will follow. If you’re wondering where your letter is, please don’t worry: due to system changes, we are experiencing some delays. Your offer should arrive by email before too long. We communicate admission decisions to you by email or regular post – not over the phone. Please double check your email junk folder if you have not received any emails from Concordia.
