Students transferring in to Concordia with Associate of Arts (A.A.) degrees or those who have completed the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) will have completed general education requirements that fulfill the majority of Concordia’s Core Curriculum requirements.

More Details

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 your transcripts are submitted, you may request a transfer credit evaluation. 

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.

If you're planning on completing an Associate of Arts degree (AA) or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC), your courses will transfer to complete most of Concordia's Core Curriculum. However, it's a good idea to connect with us to make sure you're taking the best classes to prepare for your major.

If you aren't completing an AA or MnTC, use the transfer guides to choose classes at your community college that have historically transferred very well to Concordia. Start a conversation with our transfer representative to get a transfer plan made just for you.

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 - automatic and competitive. Academic transfer student scholarships are based on your college GPA. Simply apply for admission to get started.

Transfer Scholarships

Yes. Loans are not transferable between colleges, so you need to cancel the loans at your current school and reapply at Concordia. If seeking federal and state aid, you can easily add Concordia College to your FAFSA and re-submit. 

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.

All Concordia incoming transfer students participate in Orientation prior to the start of classes each semester. 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.

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, we recommend all new students to live on campus. At Concordia, all freshmen and sophomore students are required to live on campus. However, transfer students do have the opportunity to apply for a housing exemption. 

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.
