If you are a student from another Quebec university who wishes to take courses at Concordia, you must complete a web-based Inter-University Exchange Authorization form on the CREPUQ website. Once you complete the CREPUQ form, your application will be handled online.
Provide your name, date of birth, first language, email address and other details. Please ensure that all information is accurate and matches all your official supporting documents. If you had to modify the spelling of your name when you created your Netname account, please correct your name here.
For the questions about languages, if you are bilingual or multilingual, please choose the options that seem most appropriate to you. Your answers will not affect your application for admission in any way.
The email address you provide will be the one we use to communicate with you throughout the admissions process.
Indicate where you’re currently attending university and which field you’re interested in at Concordia.
You may specify a mailing address different from your home address.
You can change your contact information at a later date through MyConcordia.ca.
MyConcordia is the university’s main site for students to carry out key tasks related to their academic life, like checking course schedules and paying tuition. For future students, it’s also the place where you can check on the status of your application for admission. You’ll be able to log into MyConcordia once you’ve submitted your application.
Release of Information: Privacy rules prevent us from talking to anyone but you about your application, unless you authorize a specific person on your application. Once you are admitted, this person will no longer have access to your file.
Once you click the “submit” button, you will receive a confirmation email with an attached PDF copy of your application within 24 hours. This email will include an eight-digit student ID number that you will use throughout your studies should you be accepted at Concordia.
When your application is complete and you’ve added all supporting documents to your file, we start to consider your application. Because the admissions process varies for each student and program, we cannot give specific dates for a decision. Read more 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 completed yet.
