Transfer to Concordia College.
It's the right choice.

Admission Overview

Concordia College welcomes applications from transfer students and reviews admission applications on the basis of previous academic record, recommendations, and an essay. Transfer applications are reviewed on a rolling basis until the first week of classes if space is available.

A flexible core curriculum allows us to accept 90 credits from a regionally accredited institution. However credits that do not satisfy programmatic requirements may not be accepted.

You must earn a grade of “C” or better for credits to be transferable from an accredited institution (for most programs, see specific program details linked below) . At least 30 credits must be completed at our College to earn a degree from Concordia. Transfer students with international academic credentials must have their documents translated and attested by their school or by an approved translation agency, such as WES, to be accepted by Concordia College.
