Concordia Connect 3+1

The Concordia Connect 3+1 Partnership between Concordia University Texas and Austin Community College will help students complete their transition from an AAS degree to a BAAS degree, simply and affordably.


How It Works

Participating students will complete an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree at ACC and a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) degree taught by visiting Concordia professors. This gives students the opportunity to pursue a four-year degree from a private institution while remaining at ACC.

  •   Year 1 and 2: Complete AAS degree at ACC (60 credits)

  •   Year 3: Become a Concordia student and complete general studies course at ACC to fill the Concordia Core Curriculum (27 credits)

  • Concordia Common Experience - ACC Equivalent Courses (Year 3)

    General education and liberal arts courses to become Texas core complete - 27 semester credit hours.

Accessible, Affordable, Attainable

Students pay ACC tuition while they complete their AAS and become Concordia Core Complete. Students then pay Concordia tuition for the final year of the program. Students are eligible for financial aid for the entirety of their time in school.

  •   Flexibility: Classes in the final year of the program will be offered in an accelerated format with options for daytime, nighttime and weekends

  •   Dual Resources: Students have access to facilities, faculty, tutoring, advising, libraries and other resources from both institutions

  •   Outcome-Driven: The combination of skills learned at ACC and CTX will put students on the right path toward life-changing experiences that will lead to meaningful work

"As a transfer student, I appreciate Concordia’s smaller class sizes and authentic care for the student. Professors check in and make sure you understand the material, and their office doors are almost always open. The difference at Concordia is that here I feel like I am appreciated and cared for far more than I could have imagined, not just by friends or family, but by the university."
