Students aged 55 and older who wish to attend undergraduate courses primarily in the Faculty of Arts and Science, for personal interest only, may register to audit the course equivalent of six credits per academic year. Though not required to write class assignments or final examinations, they participate in every other aspect of the courses.
Concordia University is committed to lifelong learning and community service, in recognition of which seniors at Concordia can study for credit in a program or as Independent students. Since the creation of the Senior Non-Credit Program in 1983, they may also choose to audit courses as Independent students on a non-credit basis at a significantly reduced fee.

Awards and Scholarships
Seniors wishing to pursue an undergraduate program or take courses as Independent students for credit, may do so at the regular tuition fees. Some assistance is possible for those 55 and over through the William Schiff Scholarship. This $500 award is made available by money raised by senior students themselves for seniors enrolled in a program. In addition, Concordia's Senior community funds two bursaries annually for students freshly graduated from CEGEP.
Details of these awards may be obtained at the Financial Aid Office, GM-220, 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West.
