In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, requests that were previously made in-person at the Birks Student Service Centre can now be made online. In very specific cases, an in-person appointment can be reserved. Below you will find key information and steps to follow to make these requests.
You can call 514-848-2424 x 2668 Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST with any questions. Otherwise you can email email@example.com.
In-person appointments can only be scheduled via the MyConcordia portal. MyConcordia.ca > Student Services > Birks Appointment Booking
You must have a valid netname. If you encounter any difficulties with your netname and/or password, please contact our service desk.
The STM uses the Concordia ID card photo in order to produce the OPUS card. Please ensure that your ID card is created before submitting an OPUS request.
After 24 hours, the OPUS card can be ordered online and the STM will send it by mail.
To be eligible, a student must have a provincial (Quebec) home address saved in their MyConcordia Student Centre and be registered full-time in the current term (at least 12 credits). Note that wait-listed courses do not count towards enrolment.
To request an OPUS card:
From MyConcordia click on Student Services, Online OPUS Card Requests
Follow the instructions and make a payment of $15 to the STM via the OPUS platform
Students may also print an OPUS attestation letter (per the attestation letter instructions but by choosing OPUS letter) and then present themselves at Berri-UQAM metro with this letter in-hand. Note than an appointment may be required with the STM.
Official transcripts are available by mail and by courier (additional fees applicable if courier is chosen). In-person pick-up is not possible due to restricted access to campus.
Transcripts destined to other universities in Quebec will be sent electronically.
Official transcripts can be sent electronically to institutions outside of Quebec if the institution’s e-mail address is included in the request. Please verify with the institution that it will be accepted in this format. (Please note: One email address per request).
An appointment can be made in order to discuss your Quebec Residency situation or to present a sworn statement to a Commissioner of oaths.
Appointments can be booked via your MyConcordia portal under Student Services (Birks Appointment Booking)
If you would like a sworn statement to be witnessed for AFE purposes, please communicate with the Financial Aid and Awards Office to ensure you are preparing the proper documents before scheduling a Birks appointment.
Please see our diplomas website for more information and for the necessary forms. You can submit your request and provide a sworn statement at Birks by appointment. There is a $100 fee for a replacement diploma.
