Specific admission requirements vary with programs.
Concordia considers applications from home-schooled and home educated applicants. All applicants are assessed on an individual basis and are treated on their own merits. We appreciate the uniqueness of the home school environment and provide the following admission routes as a guideline for your benefit but also understand that your situation may be different so please do not hesitate to contact us regarding your admission circumstances.

The portfolio should also contain one of the following:
- A brief essay (1000-2500 words) describing the value of your home-schooling experience
- An entrance video production with supporting written storyboard.
An interview may also be requested.
To strengthen your application we encourage you to provide a confidential letter of recommendation from an impartial source, such as a home education coordinator, indicating your academic readiness for a university-level program of studies and method of homeschooling followed.
