Transfer to Concordia


Thanks to new agreements with area community colleges, we’re now able to directly transfer most associate degrees. If you don’t quite have your associate degree, we’ll find ways to make the credits you have count. We value your hard work and academic history and want you to graduate with your bachelor’s degree as quickly and easily as possible.

What’s more, we’ve added new scholarships just for transfer students, making it even more affordable to get your bachelor’s degree from a private, liberal arts university. And just for coming to campus, you’ll receive a $250 Visit Scholarship when you enroll. How’s that for easy! Bring us your unofficial transcripts and let’s get started!
