Please note that space in engineering courses is limited and priority for enrollment will be given to Concordia students. The Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science will not allow visiting students to register in any engineering courses without written permission from the student's home university.

Please note that the following courses are NOT open to visiting students:
BLDG 490, and CIVI 490;

Also note that undergraduate visiting students are not eligible to take graduate level courses.

Visiting students wishing to take courses offered in faculties or departments other than Engineering and Computer Science should contact the faculty or department offering the course directly.

Approval as to whether or not the courses can be taken will depend on receipt of the above items and whether or not there is sufficient space in the courses in question. Priority is to Concordia Students requiring the courses for their current program of study. For this reason it is important that all requests be submitted at least 4-6 weeks prior to the beginning of term.

Please note that submission of a Visiting Student form directly to the Office of the Registrar without prior Faculty approval does not guarantee that you will be allowed to take courses in the Faculty.
