Transfer Guarantee

If you have completed an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree from a community college in the United States or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) if attending a community college in Minnesota, admission is guaranteed for transfer students at Concordia — given you have met all eligibility criteria and there is available capacity within the intended major.* To receive guaranteed admission you will need to:

  • Complete the free application process
  • Meet cumulative GPA requirement of 2.75
  • Have official transcripts sent from all previous postsecondary institutions
  • A.A. degree or MnTC (for Minnesota students) must be noted on your final official transcript


Benefits of the Transfer Admission Guarantee:

  • Assures you of admission early in your college journey and enables detailed course planning for your major
  • The MnTC is accepted as a whole to meet most general education requirements**
  • All 60 credits are accepted if each course meets the transfer credit policy, including a standard letter grade of C- or better in each course

For transfer students who meet the specified criteria, the guarantee offers a chance to get ahead. Please visit our transfer student admission and Cobber Completion Plan pages for additional information on the transfer process.

The deadline to apply for Spring is Dec. 15. The Fall application deadline is Aug. 1.
