John Molson Course Registration


In order to ensure that you successfully complete all program requirements, we highly recommend that you use the Program Planning Worksheets to map out your course selections for the next several terms, keeping in mind that certain basic prerequisite courses must be completed before other more advanced courses.

Contact your John Molson academic advisor for advice related to your university program and your course selections each term.

Taking courses at other educational institutions

John Molson students are permitted to take courses at other educational institutions for credit toward their program of study if they have achieved a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.70 in their program of study, and subject to the following:

  • Students can transfer a maximum of 15 credits into their program.
  • At least 50% of the credits required for a specific Major or Minor must be completed at Concordia University.
  • The course COMM 315 (Business Law and Ethics) should not be taken at an institution outside the province of Quebec, due to the nature of this course.

You must complete a BCI student request and wait for both the John Molson Undergraduate Programs Office and Concordia’s Enrolment Services to approve it before it passes to your host university for review. Please make every effort to apply as early as possible for BCI transfers.

Upon completion of the course, credits and grades attained at the host university are transferred to your Concordia academic record. This is an automatic process.

A student who wishes to take courses at Canadian educational institutions outside Quebec must submit a Student Request Form to the John Molson Undergraduate Programs Office (MB 4.201). The request must include the following details:

  • Course code and title
  • Course description
  • Course outline
  • Credit value of each course
  • Term dates

Complete requests are normally processed within two weeks from the date of submission. Courses taken without prior permission will not be transferred.

You must successfully complete the pre-approved course(s) to be awarded transfer credit; however, the grade(s) are not recorded on your student record or transcript. The university does not guarantee the number of credits that will be transferred to your John Molson program prior to successful completion of the courses. In all cases, you must request an official transcript be sent from your host university to Concordia’s Office of the Registrar for credit verification.

John Molson students are also eligible to take courses at universities all over the world as part of our Concordia Student Exchange Program or as a Visiting International Fee-Paying exchange student.
