  • Official transcript: After you submit your application online, you should submit copies of your academic records to the Office of Admission. You may be responsible for completing any official transcript request forms and to pay any fees your school may require.
  • Test scores: We accept either the ACT (Concordia code 2104) or SAT (Concordia code 6113). If you take a test more than once, we will use the best sub-scores among your tests to calculate a composite "super score." When considering scholarship eligibility, the highest "super score" will be used.

How to Submit Your Documents

  • Concordia Portal: If you can upload your additional documents on the Portal Dashboard. Log back in to your account and you'll be directed to the document uploader. 
  • Common App: If you applied using the Common App, log in to your account and follow the directions to submit required documents.  You must also download the International Student Financial Aid Certification form and Proof of Funding documents and send them to intl@cord.edu.  Concordia's International Team will then add those document to your account.

If you are not able to upload all your required documents via the application portal or Common App, you may send additional material to intl@cord.edu.
