Transferring credits and credit by exam

Issues and policies for transferring credits

  • Credits earned at other accredited institutions will be considered for transfer into Concordia University. Not all credits transferred will necessarily reduce course work needed to meet program requirements. Only Concordia University, Nebraska, course work will be used to determine cumulative grade-point averages.
  • No more than 70 hours of credits from two-year colleges may be applied toward completion of a four-year program of study.
  • Students seeking a bachelor's degree must complete a minimum of 30 hours in residence, at least 15 of which must be in their major.
  • Only courses with a grade of C- or above will be accepted for transfer credit

College Level Advanced Placement (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), or Military Credits are reviewed and considered for equivalent placement at Concordia.
