Transfer students

Minimum admission requirements when applying from other institutions

If you’re interested in transferring to Concordia from another university, we consider your transfer application on the basis of both your university studies and your previous studies. When you transfer from another accredited university to Concordia, we will consider placing you at an appropriate level within the undergraduate program of your choice.

Transfer credit

Academic credit may be awarded for university-level courses that are equivalent to Concordia courses and appropriate to the program you are applying to.

  • In order for us to make an evaluation of transfer credit, we must receive a formal application and all necessary supporting documents first
Conditions for transfer credit

There are, however, some special conditions attached to the granting of transfer credits. The number of credits awarded depends on the character, quality and quantity of the work completed.

  • A minimum of 45 credits, and in some cases 60 credits, must be taken at Concordia University.

For more information on transferring from other post-secondary institutions refer to the Undergraduate Calendar.

Already a Concordia student? — Internal degree transfer

Are you a Concordia student currently enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree and wish to apply for a transfer into a different Bachelor’s degree?  (e.g. from a Bachelor of Commerce to Bachelor of Fine Arts or from Bachelor of Arts  to a Bachelor of Engineering). If you wish to apply to transfer from one degree to another, view How to apply for a Degree Transfer.

NOTE: If you are currently in a Certificate or are Independent student who wishes to apply to enter a Bachelor’s program you must apply for admission.
