We have all the resources you'll need to dive right into life at Concordia. From scholarship applications to course registration, learn more about your next steps as you join the Cobber community.

1. Apply for Scholarships

Concordia offers several scholarship opportunities for incoming transfer students — including the Transfer Excellence Scholarship, which is awarded upon admission. 


Tip: Watch for scholarship deadlines and apply early so your scholarships get factored into your official financial aid offer.

2. Financial Aid

We will build you a personalized financial aid package based on initial scholarships and your FAFSA. Visit fafsa.gov and use code 002346.


Plan to complete any scholarship applications prior to getting your Financial Aid award to maximize your aid offer. 

3. CobberAssurance Program

The CobberAssurance Program highlights Concordia’s commitment to helping its students, even after graduation. Offered to qualified* incoming students, the program helps Concordia graduates repay their loans after graduation.

6. Register for Classes

After you complete the above steps, you'll be able to submit a short form and can set up a time for advising and course registration with our Registrar's Office. Once the Pre-Registration Form is submitted, the Registrar's Office will reach out to you via email to set up a time to help you register via phone or video call. 


Deposited students are eligible to sign up for advising and registration when their registration window opens.


You should plan to have access to a computer during your registration appointment.

7. Language Placement Inventory

If you plan to study the same language at Concordia as you did in high school or college, this allows us to place you in the appropriate class level. 

Plan to do this prior to your advising and registration appointment with our Registrar's Office.

8. Sign up for Housing

Get to know more about our housing policies and options. Fill out our housing application to select your preferred residence hall.


Traditionally, all first- and second-year students are required to live in a residence hall on campus. Transfer students can plan to submit a housing exemption request should they wish to live off campus. Housing applications can be submitted via MyHousing.

9. Complete Sexual Assault Prevention Training

This video-based program will provide crucial information about Consent, Bystander Intervention, Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Stalking, and much more. This online training will help you better understand how important these issues are and what you can do to help make our campus safer.


If you've completed similar training at your transfer school, you may be able to be exempt if you can provide proof of completion. Ask your admission rep, Holly, for more information.

12. Health Forms

Immunization forms are mandatory and were mailed to your home address and are also available for download, as are required student-athlete forms.


Note: In January 2022, COVID-19 vaccines were added to the list of required vaccinations for all students.

13. Purchase Your Textbooks

After you've registered for your courses, stop by the Cobber Bookstore and purchase or rent your textbooks for the semester. Can't make it to campus? Order online and pick up your books when you get here.

15. Transfer Student Orientation

Kick off your Cobber life at New Student Orientation planned specifically with transfer students in mind. During Orientation, new transfer students will become familiar with campus, academic life, student activities, and college procedures.
