Course requirements for admission

CEGEP students
Admission is based on applicants’ overall Math and Physics (if applicable) CRC indicated above and completion of the following classes as part of their DEC.

  • For all BCompSc programs (except the Computer Systems Option):
    MATH 103 or 201-NYA and 203 or 201-NYB and 105 or 201-NYC

Students completing a three-year technical DEC in a related field may also be eligible for admission without the specified profile provided they achieve a minimum overall CRC as indicated above and preferably a minimum of 24 in math and physics course(s) required for their CEGEP program. Students may be eligible for exemptions/transfer credits based on course equivalencies.

IB applicants
Math HL preferred but SL is acceptable. SL grade requirement may vary. Science HL or SL acceptable.

University transfers and mature students
Applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements are encouraged to apply and may still be considered for admission, provided they have completed the majority of the prerequisite courses. Transfer credits may be considered on a course-by-course basis.

Prerequisites for university transfer applicants
The following courses are required in addition to the program and may be completed at another post-secondary institution prior to admission or at Concordia.

  • For all BCompSc programs (except the Computer Systems Option):
    Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra

You must meet Concordia’s minimum admission requirements.

Honours option available in all Computer Science programs. Students may apply to the Honours program once they have completed 30 credits and have maintained a GPA of 3.00

Physics is not required for entry to Computer Science Programs, except for Computer Systems.

Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
