The CSU’s mission is to serve students, defend their rights, and act as their highest representative body at Concordia. Two things are essential: that we are beholden to our membership, and that our funds are used responsibly.

Description of the Role: The University Retroactive Withdrawal Committee reviews and renders final decisions on late Did Not Enter (DNE) and Discontinue requests submitted by students, which are forwarded by the Faculty Student Request Committees. The committee is therefore responsible for making decisions about tuition fee refunds for students in exceptional circumstances. We’re looking for undergraduate students to sit on the committee alongside administrators to properly represent the student perspective. Meetings are monthly and require the member to review files in preparation.

Eligibility: The position is open to all undergraduate students. Once meeting dates and times are determined, attendance by committee members is mandatory.

Equitable Appointing: The Concordia Student Union welcomes the contributions that individuals from traditionally marginalized communities, as outlined under the prohibited grounds for discrimination in the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, bring to our organization. Marginalized communities include racialized people and visible minorities; Indigenous people; women; 2SLGBTQIA+ people; ethnic minorities; language minorities; and people with disabilities. Applicants shall feel free to self-identify in their cover letter or application if they are a member of a marginalized community. Candidates may also feel free to include the phrase “I would like to be considered for employment equity” to be considered for employment equity without disclosing which group they are a part of.

How to Apply: Please email your cover letter and CV to with “University Retroactive Withdrawal Committee — 2021” as the email subject line.

Learn More: For any questions, feel free to message for clarifications.
