How to Add, Change or Delete a Concentration

Some Ryerson programs have one or more Concentrations available for students. Consult the Undergraduate Calendar for details about whether or not you can pursue a concentration.

In order to be evaluated for and graduate with a Concentration, you must formally declare that you are pursuing it. You can do this at any time, and you can change or remove a concentration at any time before you have applied to graduate and your application has begun to be reviewed.

You can add one Concentration at a time using Self Service. If you wish to add a second concentration, please contact Curriculum Advising at gradinfo@ryerson.ca.

You can access the Change Concentration menu option through the Academics tile on your student home page.
