For purposes of admission to Concordia University, international students are defined solely on their citizenship/residency status. If a student does not hold citizenship or permanent residency in the United States and will require an F-1 student visa to attend Concordia, the student is classified as an international student.
Concordia University defines an international student to be a non-U.S. citizen or non-U.S. Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder). Exceptions apply if you are currently in the U.S. in one of the following statuses: Refugee, Asylum, Parolee or Confidential Entrant.
