Admission Requirements

To be considered for the Open Studies program, you must demonstrate:

  • Fulfilment of Concordia University of Edmonton’s English language requirement. However, the Admissions and Registrar’s Offices may request other documentation for admission and registration purposes.
  • Completion of prerequisite courses for any courses in which you are seeking to enrol.

Official documents and transcripts are normally required only to demonstrate the fulfilment of these criteria.

Students who have been required to withdraw from a post-secondary institution in the past 12 months are not eligible for admission to Open Studies. Students who have been required to withdraw more than once may be considered only through an appeal.​

  1. remained in satisfactory standing;
  2. removed any Grade 12 deficiencies that existed at the time of admission;
  3. not been required to withdraw from any post-secondary institution in the past 12 months. Students who have been required to withdraw more than once will be considered only through an appeal;
  4. provided official transcripts from all other post-secondary institutions attended;
  5. paid all outstanding fees and fines owing to Concordia University of Edmonton.

Admissions determines if students may be readmitted on Academic Probation.
