I transferred to Concordia my sophomore year and it was the best decision I could have made. The smaller, more welcoming feel of the college made me realize that this was the place I wanted to be. I felt super supported in my decision to transfer and the college seemed like they genuinely valued me going here.

Send Concordia your official or unofficial transcripts to determine how your credits will transfer. Upon request, Concordia can also provide a degree audit to calculate how many semesters it will take to complete your degree. If you are interested in seeing how your credits may transfer before you complete your application, contact a transfer representative. Credit will be used to fulfill core and major requirements whenever possible. Learn more about transferring credit to Concordia College.
