Transfer Students

Applicants who have completed courses in other colleges or universities may be granted transfer credits towards their program at Concordia University. These transfer credits will normally be awarded as general credits and as such may not be equivalent to specific first‑year courses at Concordia.
Applicants to a second undergraduate degree must complete a minimum of 60 credits, other than those credited towards the first degree, at least 36 of which must be taken in the new field of specialization (Section 16.2.2 Residence Requirements under Section 16.2 Curriculum Regulations). Students transferring credits towards a first degree must complete a minimum of 45 credits at Concordia (see Section 16.2.2 Residence Requirements under Section 16.2 Curriculum Regulations).
Students must complete all program and degree requirements, as well as the Faculty of Fine Arts residence requirements (see
Section 81.20.2 Residence Requirements).

Mature Entry

General admission requirements to the 108‑credit program (Mature Entry) are listed in Section 14 Mature Entry. Students admitted into the Faculty of Fine Arts through the Mature Entry plan are required to complete 18 credits in addition to the 90 credits normally required for the BFA degree.

Extended Credit Program

Definition of the Extended Credit Program (ECP) is listed in Section 13.2 Definitions. Students admitted to an Extended Credit Program in Fine Arts are required to complete an additional 30 credits for the degree. Transfer credits awarded for Ontario Academic Courses (OACs) must be applied towards the ECP portion of a student’s degree program.
