Change of concentration or internal degree transfer

Current students may wish to add a program (i.e., add a Minor) or change their concentration (Specialization to Major) of their program. Or, students may wish to change degrees (BA to a BSc, BSc to a BEd, BA to a BComm) via the internal degree transfer process.  

Change of concentration: 2 options

1) If you wish to change your program concentration (for example, Major to Specialization), you must make an appointment with your department advisor. If approved, your department will complete the change of concentration on your behalf.

Requirements:

  • Acceptable Standing (assessment and cumulative GPAs 2.00 or above)
  • Have at least Concordia 24 credits on record
  • All credits/courses on record continue to count towards the program and degree

2) If you wish to add another program,  drop a program (must have at least a Major) or change your program altogether (for example, adding another Major, dropping a Minor from another department or going from program X to program Y), you must make an appointment with the department advisor of the program you wish to enter. If approved, that department will complete the change of concentration on your behalf.

Requirements:

  • Acceptable Standing (assessment and cumulative GPAs 2.00 or above)
  • Have at least 24 Concordia credits on record
  • All credits/courses on record continue to count towards the program and degree

Students who wish to change their concentration to the Honours concentration, must make an appointment with the Honours advisor in their department. Admission to an Honours programs has additional requirements. For more information, please consult the Faculty's Honours regulations in the Undergraduate Calendar.

Internal Degree transfer

Students who wish to change degrees (BA to a BSc, for example) must go to the degree transfer requirements page for more information. The internal degree transfer process is similar to the admission process you went through when you applied to the University. An Admission Officer will send you their decision via email.

Requirements:

  • Acceptable Standing (assessment and cumulative GPAs 2.00 or above)
  • Some degrees require profile courses (for example, changing from a BA to a BSc requires at least 50 per cent of the science profile, except for HKAP, which requires at least 70 per cent of the science profile completed)
  • BA to BSc transfers must have at least one completed course from each of the four disciplines of the science profile completed
  • Some programs may require a higher GPA or additional requirements
  • Have at least 24 Concordia credits on record
  • Credited courses with grades of C- or higher will transfer into the new degree/program
