FAQs

Please refer to our list of questions and answers to help ensure a smooth transition onto campus. If you have additional questions not answered here, please contact your admissions counselor.

When will I receive my move-in time?

Your specific move-in time will be sent to you by the end of July 2018.

Can I arrive EARLIER than my assigned move-in time?

No.  The move-in times are coordinated to ensure maximum efficiency and ease for all students and families arriving on campus.

Can I arrive LATER than my assigned move-in time?

Yes, but all new students must arrive on campus by 2 p.m. on Thursday, August 30, 2018.

How does the move-in process work?

Please arrive on campus at your assigned move-in time.  Drive directly to your residence hall where a CSP Welcome Crew will be waiting to help you unload your vehicle.

Once all of your items have been placed in your residence hall, please park your vehicle and proceed to the Welcome Center at Graebner Memorial Chapel to finalize your arrival.

When can I buy my books?

Books are available to be purchased now at the CSP Bookstore and can be purchased throughout Welcome Weekend.*

What are Concordia’s technology requirements?

Students enrolling at Concordia must have access to a laptop that meets Concordia University’s technology requirements. An acceptable device is one that is capable of running a supported operating system (View the hardware and software requirements). Most laptops sold within the last two years will meet these requirements.

Concordia is one of the first universities to partner with Microsoft to license Microsoft Office for all students. This software will be available at no cost to students and the license allows installation on up to five devices owned by the student.
