About Us

Concordia is an excellent choice to further your education and offers a unique educational experience among Christian liberal arts universities.

Academic Value

  • Quality of Programs- Through experiential learning, we provide you critical thinking and communication skills as well as subject knowledge to be successful in whatever career path you choose.

  • Learning Environment- With an average class size of 18 and a campus designed to inspire your creativity and intellect, you can't help but be engaged in your education.

  • Faculty Investment- Our professors know more than your name; they know your strengths, goals, and interests. They will not only teach you, but they will prepare and mentor you for success in life.

Personal Value

  • Formation- Many schools offer a great education. Concordia offers you personal formation as well as an education. We want to help you become the person God is calling you to be!

  • Involvement- Concordia is a place that you can make a difference, where you can be engaged both in the community and here on campus while pursuing your passions.

  • Connections- Relationships are key for success and happiness in life. At Concordia, you will be able to build lifelong friendships, inspiring mentorships, and professional networks.

Financial Value

  • Affordability- We strive to make private education affordable. Over 80% of freshmen receive financial aid and do not pay the full cost of attendance. In fact, the average aid package for freshmen is $17,540 per year.

  • Return on Investment- College graduates earn an average of $30,000 per year more than non-graduates so a college education is definitely a worthwhile investment. Concordia makes it an even better one, since out of 452 colleges in Texas, Concordia ranks 38th on greatest lifetime return on investment!

Application Deadlines

Concordia recommends that students apply for admission during the fall of their senior year. This ensures you will be accepted prior to starting the financial aid process. While you can apply for both admission and financial aid at the same time, we cannot award your financial aid until you have been accepted to Concordia. The sooner you apply for admission, the more prepared you will be to receive financial aid, housing, and course registration.

August 1, 2017: Admission Deadline. Application and all required documents must be received by the Office of Admissions. Applications completed after this date will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
