English Pathway Program

Concordia University, Nebraska has developed a pathway program to help intermediate English learners admissible to Concordia based on academic evidence, but who haven't met English proficiency standards for full admission. As you enter the university with conditional acceptance, you will receive English language support. You will be enrolled in developmental English classes along with other undergraduate courses.

Program Overview

  • After one semester of study in the pathway program, you will have earned from five to nine credits toward a degree.
  • After two semesters in the pathway program, you will have earned 14 credits toward your degree.

This is a great way to start university courses and receive the English language support you need.

Once you've completed the pathway program, you can begin undergraduate study with 14 credits earned—a full semester of credit!
