Will my credits transfer?
Concordia reviews transfer students’ course credits on a course-by-course basis. Most credits will transfer from accredited institutions.
The transfer notebook will show you how classes have transferred in the past.
Once you are accepted for admission, the Registrar's Office will complete an official Transcript Review.
Our transfer coordinator will then help you determine how classes you are currently taking, or have taken, will fit into Concordia’s Core Curriculum and major requirements.
Additionally, you may try using Transferology, an online tool, to help you determine if your credits will transfer.
I am at a community college; what classes should I take this semester that transfer to Concordia?
Use the transfer guides to choose classes at your community college that have historically transferred very well to Concordia.
Is Concordia affordable for me?
Nearly 100 percent of Concordia students receive financial aid and find Concordia one of the most affordable private colleges in Minnesota.
Many scholarships are available for you as a transfer student. Academic transfer student scholarships are based on your college GPA. Simply apply for admission; no separate scholarship application is needed.
Do I need to reapply for student loans if I already have them?
Yes. Loans are not transferable between colleges, so you need to cancel the loans at your current school and reapply at Concordia.
Where exactly is Fargo-Moorhead? What is there for me to do?
Fargo-Moorhead is about a 235-mile drive along Interstate 94 from the Twin Cities. Located on the border of North Dakota and Minnesota, Fargo-Moorhead is home to almost 30,000 college students and 224,000 community members – with more than 350 restaurants, hundreds of brand-name retail stores, 33 movie screens, concerts by the biggest names in music and minor league professional sports teams.
How will I get to know other students?
All Concordia incoming transfer students participate in Orientation prior to the start of classes each fall. You'll be part of an Orientation Club with other transfer students for these days, full of fun activities designed to help you meet new people and adjust to campus life.
What are the options for campus living?
Living on campus will help you quickly become part of the college community, making it easier to meet new people and get involved in campus activities and events. For this reason, all first-year and sophomore Concordia students are required to reside on campus unless they live in the immediate area with their parents.
Juniors and seniors also have great options for apartment-style living on campus, yet others choose to live off campus. It's a great way to get used to living on your own – juggling the responsibilities of budgeting your housing, food and utility expenses and relating to a landlord.
