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

Accepted Fall 2021 transfer students are eligible to apply for additional scholarships via the Supplemental Scholarship Application.


Tip: 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. Go to fafsa.gov and use code 002346.


Plan to complete your Scholarship form prior to submitting your FAFSA to maximize your aid offer. 

3. CobberAssurance Program

Qualified Fall 2021 students will be invited to participate in the CobberAssurance Loan Repayment Assistance Program to address the concern of repaying student loans after graduation. The CobberAssurance program covers all Federal Direct, Private Alternative Student Loans, and Parent PLUS loans taken out while at Concordia. Transfer students must have at least two years remaining to qualify. 

5. 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. 


Registration for Fall 2021 opened in April.


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

6. 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.

7. 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. For 2021-22, transfer students can plan to submit a housing exemption request should they wish to live off campus. Housing applications and exemptions can be submitted via MyHousing.

8. Complete Not Anymore Training

This video-based program will provide crucial information about Consent, Bystander Intervention, Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Stalking, and much more. Not Anymore 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 a similar training at your transfer school, you may be able to be exempt. Ask your admission rep, Holly, for more information.

9. Submit Final Transcripts

If you submitted any unofficial transcripts for admission, be sure to send updated official transcripts once final grades are posted to Concordia so your in-progress credits can be transferred.

11. 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.

12. Purchase Your Textbooks

After you've registered for classes, 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.

14. 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.


Save the Date: Fall 2021 Transfer Student Orientation will take place Aug. 24-25. Classes begin Thursday, Aug. 26.
