Concord Admissions

Welcome to Concord. The Admissions staff will occasionally be working remotely. During this period, you may reach us at our regularly published phone extensions and email addresses, and we will be available during regular business hours. Return calls, not made from the office, are being made through a third-party application.  If you are expecting a return call from our office, it may also come from a Mount Hope, WV number that appears as (681) 422-xxxx. Thank you for your patience and please be safe.

We are available for scheduled tours of campus. You must make a reservation in advance. Click the "Visit CU" link below to make a reservation, and to understand the rules we will ask you to follow to keep everyone safe while on campus.  We cannot wait to CU on campus soon!

Jade Gravely '18

Beckley, WV

When it came to choosing a college, Jade knew exactly what she wanted. She sought after a school that had a strong academic reputation, was financially reasonable, and she wanted a school where she wouldn't just be a name and face to professors, but a person they truly cared about. Jade found all of that and more at Concord University. From being a voice for her peers on the Student Government Association to her involvement in Greek life, Jade found herself very involved in extracurricular activities at Concord. She credits the academic and extracurricular opportunities she was offered at Concord, that allowed her to come to realize her passion for the legal field. Four years later Jade graduated without any student debt, left Concord with a lifetime of memories, and now continues her journey in law school. It Starts With You.

“I will forever be thankful for what Concord University brought me- a 4 year degree without any student debt, acceptance into a great graduate school, and a lifetime of memories.”

Dr. Joan Pendergast

Chair, Department of Social Work and Title IX Coordinator

When Dr. Pendergast was finishing her Ph.D. in Social Work Education at the University of South Carolina, she dreamed of teaching at a school like Concord. “I have wanted to live in the mountains for as long as I can remember,” she says. In 2007, she accepted a tenure-track position at CU and has found a home here. “The campus community is welcoming and accepting,” she says. Before completing her doctoral degree, Dr. Pendergast was a practicing social worker, valuable experience she shares with her students. “When I speak with students about social work, I explain that this is the best job and worst job you can have,” she says. “It’s very rewarding to see how people can change their lives, and it can be discouraging when these changes do not come.” Dr. Pendergast is dedicated to preparing her students for the realities they’ll face after graduation, and says she enjoys “being a small part of their journey.”

Shawn Hatcher

Princeton, W.Va.

Shawn is a second generation Mountain Lion, but that is only one detail that finalized his decision to choose CU after graduating from Pikeview High School in 2017. The university also had the program of study he wanted, and its location meant Shawn could commute to save money. He is a Business Administration major with concentrations in management and finance. When Shawn isn’t in class, you’ll find him working in the business office as a work-study in the Accounts Payable office. Shawn says the real life experiences that professors share and the work experience he has received at Concord has prepared him for the kind of job he wants when he graduates, one similar to the job he currently does at CU. Education aside, Shawn says his favorite part about Concord is the people. “It felt like home from the time I stepped on the campus in 2017,” Shawn says. “Most of everyone is relaxed and will help out if you are in need.”
