A typical visit will include a campus tour, a visit with an admission representative, and a visit with a faculty member in the department of your choice. Additional appointments such as visits with athletic coaches or music ensemble conductors can be requested as well in the visit registration.
Depending on your visit requests, you should plan to be on campus anywhere between 2 and 4 hours.
If you need to leave campus by a specific time, please make note of that in your visit registration so we can schedule your day accordingly.

Some questions may be:
What scholarships are available to me?
Can you tell me about the study abroad options?
How do I go about selecting a major?
What should I be doing to prepare me for college?
I’ve taken college level and/or AP courses in high school; how will these transfer to Concordia?
In order for you to have to best visit possible, please register for a visit as far in advance as possible.
If you walk in, the admission representative, faculty, or staff member you’re interested in meeting may not be available.
Absolutely! Our faculty love connecting with prospective students. When you register for a visit during the academic year, you’ll select a department and we’ll do everything we can so you can meet with a faculty member from that department.
However, due to faculty being away from campus to conduct research or lead study away programs, one-on-one faculty visits are not available between May and August.
