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 our team will be for you becoming a Tornado!
