Concordia University of Edmonton

Concordia University of Edmonton

CUE is a university of action and passion, small enough that every student is essential but large enough to make real differences when we tackle global challenges. We are a students’ university. We offer more than 50 post secondary program majors and minors in the fields of Arts, Science, Education, and Management. We also offer two after-degree programs, three masters degrees, a doctoral program, graduate and undergraduate certificates and diplomas, and continuing education programs. Our ultimate goal has not changed since 1921: to be more than students and professors, to create a community of active citizens, to inspire good and honourable people who have found a university where they belong.

Admission Requirements

Open Studies is a great way for you to fit university studies into your life. Take courses for professional development, to explore an interest or to apply credits towards a future degree.

Open Studies allows students to register in undergraduate university-level courses without first being admitted to a degree program. To be considered for the Open Studies program, applicants must demonstrate:

  1. fulfilment of Concordia University of Edmonton’s English language requirement and
  2. completion of prerequisite courses.

Official documents and transcripts are normally required only to demonstrate the fulfilment of these criteria. However, the Admissions and Registrar’s Offices may request other documentation for admission and registration purposes.

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.

Registration information for Open Studies students is indicated in section 4.1.3.

Application Deadline

Open Studies applications are assessed on an ongoing basis. All application files must be complete at least two weeks before the start of each session.
