3.2.5 Transfer Student Admission 2020/2021

3.2.5 Transfer Student Admission

Transfer students must have completed a minimum of 24 transferable credits (normally, eight semester courses) from a recognized post-secondary institution (university, college or technical institute). Applicants with fewer than 24 transferable credits must normally present the normal high school qualifications or a combination of high school and post-secondary course work.

A transferable course is defined as a course that Concordia University of Edmonton accepts for credit toward a Concordia University of Edmonton degree program. For more complete information on transfer credit, see section 3.1.2.

The Admission Grade Point Average (AGPA) is calculated using the most recently attempted 24 credits; all grades used in calculating the AGPA are adjusted according to Concordia University of Edmonton’s grade conversion scale. Normally, courses completed in the spring and summer sessions immediately preceding the semester of entry are not calculated in the AGPA.

Applicants who have been required to withdraw from a post-secondary institution are not eligible to apply to Concordia University of Edmonton for 12 months after the date they were required to withdraw.

Applicants to Arts or Science degree programs who present an AGPA of less than 2.0 or who have completed the 12-month waiting period after being required to withdraw may be considered for admission. If admitted, applicants are placed on academic probation and may be required to reduce their course load. Applicants who are not successful in gaining admission to a degree program may consider applying to Open Studies to improve their AGPA.

Applicants who have been required to withdraw more than once in their academic careers may be considered for admission only through an appeal. The letter of appeal must be submitted with their application for admission and contain the reason for their previous unsatisfactory performance, their accomplishments since they were required to withdraw, and the strategies they have developed to ensure success if they re-enter university studies.
