Concordia School of Graduate Studies Admissions Statement

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world in a few short weeks. Swift and radical adaptation is needed to survive and thrive beyond these uncertain times on individual and institutional levels. While every aspect of life has been altered for us all, it is our students (both current and future) who have faced the most severe challenges. In response, Concordia and many fellow academic institutions have adapted, offering flexible grading options in recognition of the disruptions to coursework as well as daily life.

Concordia’s School of Graduate Studies recognizes the necessity of this adaptation, and fully supports expanded admissions policies to allow for a more holistic interpretation of candidacy. Applications will be reviewed within the context of the pandemic, and applicants are encouraged to illustrate their individual circumstances in their personal statements.

The world has changed and the need for innovative researchers and thinkers has never been greater. It is our duty and our pride to welcome those who would undertake the challenge.
