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. 

To apply for admission you need to log in to This how-to 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 ready (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) for the application fee and a valid email address for correspondence. 

Once you've applied, you may check the status of your application while you wait for a letter of acceptance.

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 Application assessment period for more details.

If you apply for admission to a semester in the distant future (i.e. 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 completed yet.

Check your application status online

You can keep tabs on your application status online through MyConcordia portal.

  • Visit the MyConcordia portal  
  • Find the tab Application Center in the left-hand column. You can verify your status and see what documents the university has received.
Letters of acceptance

We communicate all admission decisions with you by email and regular post – not over the phone. Please double check your email junk folder if you have not received any emails from Concordia. Once you’ve received your letter of acceptance, you should visit our new students' site and prepare for first year.
