During the summer months, tour times are at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

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.
