3. Seamless Admissions Process

Concordia's admissions process is streamlined; you work with one admissions counselor to get everything done, from your initial transfer application to financial aid and registration.

The application process is simple. Transfer students with 12 or more college-level credit hours completed must have a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA (students who fall below the requirement may be evaluated for provisional admission). Apply online and send your official transcript(s) to the Admissions office; no essay is required.

2. Up to 90 Transferable Credits

Concordia will accept up to 90 eligible college-level credit hours. The Registrar will evaluate your transcript to determine which credits can transfer.

In general, there are three factors that make a course's credits eligible:

  • Course is non-remedial or non-developmental
  • Course is completed at regionally accredited institution
  • Earned grade of C (2.0) or better
