Normally, to start an undergraduate degree program at Concordia, you must have completed a two-year pre-university program or a three-year professional DEC (Diplôme d'études collégiales). The CRC you'll needvaries by academic program.
We know that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present many challenges, so we have extended the deadline to complete your DEC until summer 2021. That means Cegep students can start their program at Concordia with up to three missing “components,” which can include any combination of a course, the language exit test or the comprehensive assessment.
If you're offered admission to Concordia for fall 2020, you'll be starting university while completing your DEC through your Cegep. Keep in mind that Concordia offers significant support to new students in the form of learning counselling and peer mentors. Also, many programs offer a flexible schedule.
Students only completing a Quebec Secondary V Diploma are not directly admissible to undergraduate study. Learn more about admission to our Mature Entry Program.
