Application Deadlines

Concordia recommends that students apply for admission during the fall of their senior year. This ensures you will be accepted prior to starting the financial aid process. While you can apply for both admission and financial aid at the same time, we cannot award your financial aid until you have been accepted to Concordia. The sooner you apply for admission, the better off you will be when it comes to financial aid, as well as housing, and course registration.
August 1, 2015: Admission Deadline. Application and all required documents must be received by the Office of Admissions. Applications completed after this date will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
