Transfer Students

Welcome to the Concord University’s transfer student page. We understand that each student has a unique transfer situation. Our goal is to work with you on an individual basis to help ensure a smooth transition to our community. Please use this page as a reference and starting point, but do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you have.

A transfer student is defined as an applicant who has attempted coursework at a previous college or university after graduating from high school. Concord University welcomes the submission of applications from all transfer students, and we look forward to working with all students on an individual basis.

Concord University offers the kind of flexible education that provides students with a strong foundation from which to build their futures. With abundant research opportunities and a high level of interaction between faculty and students, it’s no wonder that our students go on to achieve amazing things. We hope to C U at CU soon!
