Requirements for Canadian Students
High school applicants must present five appropriate Grade 12 subjects with a minimum overall average of 60% for Arts and Science programs and a 65% average for the Management program. Concordia also admits students who are transferring from other post-secondary institutions, returning to school after several years away, or entering the Open Studies program. Applicants with bachelor degrees who are interested in Concordia’s after-degree programs in Education, Environmental Health, or Career Development, or in the Master of Information Systems Security Management program, should consult the admission requirements specific to each of these programs. Complete admission requirements for all of Concordia’s programs are available online.

For undergraduate admission, applicants educated in the United States of America must present a Grade 12 diploma and the appropriate course equivalents to the Alberta Education Grade 12 matriculation subject required for their chosen faculty. Applicants to degree programs in Arts and Science must present a minimum admission average of 60% (65% for Management) or equivalent with a passing grade in each subject used for admission.
Applicants educated in a country that follows the British Education System must present a combination of five courses from the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and the General Certificate of Education - Advanced Level (GCE - Advanced) subjects. Those applicants using the GCSE for admission must present a minimum grade of C in each subject.

Applicants with bachelor degrees who are interested in Concordia's after-degrees programs in elementary education, environmental health, or career development, or in the master's program in Information Systems Security Management, should consult the admission requirements specific to each of these programs. Complete admission information is available at www.concordia.ab.ca.
Procedure for Canadian Students
Applicants are invited to apply online. An application for admission is complete when the Admissions and Financial Aid Office has received all of the following: the application form, completed in full; official transcripts of all secondary and post-secondary studies (though applicants to Concordia’s after-degree programs are not required to present secondary transcripts); original supporting documents required for admission to specialized programs (e.g., Confidential Assessment Forms for the Education program, etc.); demonstrated fulfillment of the English Language Requirement; and any other documentation that may be requested by the Admissions and Financial Aid Office.
Concordia grants admission to the Faculties of Arts and Science on a 'first-qualified, first-admitted' basis. However, admission to the Bachelor of Management and after-degree programs is competitive. Due to limited enrolment, students are encouraged to apply early and to submit all transcripts and supporting documents as soon as they become available. Students studying at other institutions at the time of application are encouraged to forward interim transcripts to Concordia.
