Like many universities in Quebec and in the rest of Canada, Concordia will move courses online so we can support students finishing their semester on time.

Concordia is aiming to move courses online by March 23.

Here is some important information to help achieve this:

DISC deadline

  • The DISC deadline for both undergraduate and graduate students has been extended until April 15.
  • The process for discontinuing a course has not changed.
  • Tuition fees are 50% reimbursable and will be refunded at a later date.
  • Students who want to re-register for course(s) that were dropped in the past week may do so by contacting Dina Carosielli:

Assignments and in-class instruction

  • No assignments or exams are required of students until March 30.
  • We do not foresee that there will be in-class instruction for the rest of the semester.


  • In light of the situation and along with other universities, no exams, including finals, will be done in person. 
  • We are currently evaluating how to accommodate this change and expect to make a decision by Friday, March 20.
  • This will be communicated as soon as possible.
