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!

Featured Stories

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.”

Taylor Carter

Lewisburg, W.Va.

Concord’s education department was what initially drew Taylor Carter to the university, but like many freshmen, that major changed once she started taking classes. Taylor says she realized teaching wasn’t for her, but she really loved the geography classes she was taking. Now, Taylor is a Political Science and Geography double major. Her interest in politics lead to her involvement in SGA, and she is currently the president of that organization. Taylor is also in Pi Sigma Alpha, the political science honor society, and Phi Alpha Delta, Concord’s pre-law fraternity. Concord’s small size was another factor in Taylor’s decision to come to Athens. During her time here, she says a smaller campus allowed her to explore a number of ways to get involved and feel known. “Once you find your niche at Concord, you’ll never want to leave,” Taylor says.
