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!

Steven Kennedy '18

Jolo, WV

After high school, Steven joined the military, and though he traveled to many different places in his career he was never able to find a place that he would call Home. His decision to leave the military lead him to look into other options, and that was college. After several visits to different campuses, he decided that Concord University would be the place he truly called home. He took advantage of the opportunities that were presented to him, and according to him one of the best was the opportunity to work with, and give back to, fellow student veterans and veterans in the community. Steven is now a graduate of Concord and pursuing his dream expanding his own small business. It Starts With You.

“Staying involved in as many things as possible at Concord gave me a sense of belonging.”
