Admission to Concordia College is based upon a wide range of criteria, including the applicant’s overall curriculum, grades, rank-in-class, recommendations, test scores*, personal statement, interview, and general contributions to school, church, and community.

There are additional requirements for our Fellows and Concordia Connection program.

In order to be considered for (First-Year) admission, students should submit the following:

  • Non-refundable application fees: $60 application fee for domestic students, $100 application fee for international students
  • An application for admission 
  • An official high school transcript
  • SAT or ACT scores (Concordia test score codes: CEEB code for SAT  2096 and ACT College Code 2722) if not selecting Test Optional
  • School report form (part of the application)
  • A written personal statement

* Concordia joins a growing list of over 870 colleges and universities that have adopted test-optional polices in order to offer a more holistic admission process. Concordia no longer requires first-year students to submit their standardized test scores as a part of their application. There are exceptions for certain students/programs where scores are required, so please be sure to review our Test Optional FAQs below.
