Concordia University Same Day Acceptance Events
Eliminate the stress of the college application process with Same-Day Acceptance Events at Concordia University (CUI). These virtual events offer a fast and convenient way to gather information about your program of interest and potentially even gain acceptance in under one hour.
What are Same-Day Acceptance Events?
These virtual events, also known as "fast track admissions," are becoming a popular option for graduate program admission at various colleges and universities. Instead of waiting weeks or months to hear about acceptance, you can complete your application, be evaluated and receive an offer of admission in under an hour. At CUI, these events are currently available for our Master’s in Coaching and Athletic Administration graduate program, with more programs expected to follow in the future. Transfer students can also benefit from these 15-minute virtual events, which provide an overview of the admissions process and financial aid options.
Benefits of Attending a Same-Day Acceptance Event
Attending a Same-Day Acceptance Event can offer several benefits, including:
- Quick acceptance decisions, allowing you to start planning for your future sooner
- Convenient virtual format, accessible to international and out-of-state students
- An opportunity to meet representatives from graduate programs and academic staff from your department
- A better understanding of financial aid options available at CUI
- In some cases, the ability to have application requirements waived, such as recommendation letters or essays, and a waiver of the application fee
How Does a Same-Day Acceptance Event Work?
These virtual events typically last 3 hours and offer a comprehensive overview of the admissions process. You will register for a 15-minute time slot where an admissions representative will assist you in completing your application, and additional faculty members will be on hand to answer questions. You'll get a feel for your professional and academic goals and what life might be like as a student at CUI. Depending on the program, you may also be required to complete a writing sample focused on your educational goals.
Tips on how to prepare for a Same-Day Acceptance Event
Before scheduling a time slot, verify that your program offers these events and familiarize yourself with the specific requirements. Be prepared to bring a copy of your resume, unofficial transcripts, and the name and contact information for one professional reference. Keep in mind that acceptance at these events is conditional, so additional steps may be required, such as submitting official transcripts and more references.
