Additional Transfer Information

  • Concordia University, St. Paul, is known for its generous transfer policies. In addition to accepting Associate of Arts (AA) degrees and/or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) for CSP’s general education program (with the exception of the Theology requirement), we also accept a wide range of courses that transfer directly into specific major programs. See the Transfer Agreements section below for more details.

    Please keep the following degree requirements in mind as you plan your transfer to CSP:

    • An overall GPA of 2.0 or higher and major GPA of 2.0 or higher is required. (Unless the course applies toward the major, all transfer credit is accepted with a grade of Pass ‘P’ and does not impact your CSP GPA.) *Students enrolled in a program at an Oregon location must have a grade of a C or better in a course in order to be eligible for transfer credits.
    • Complete 120 total credits, 30 of which must be completed at CSP. A maximum of 90 credits will be accepted in transfer.
    • A minimum of half of the major credit requirements must be successfully completed at CSP. Prerequisite course credits are separate from the major and do not factor into the major credit total that must be completed at CSP.
    • Students must provide official college transcripts from all colleges attended. All application documents submitted to Concordia University, St. Paul by the applicant or on the applicant’s behalf become property of Concordia University, St. Paul and cannot be released back to the applicant or to any other institution.

    This information is current as of the 2020-2021 Academic Calendar. Course requirements are subject to change. Please contact the Concordia University Office of Admissions for the most up to date information.

  • Transfer Guides

    Transfer Guides are more generalized in nature than articulation agreements. Transfer Guides list the community college courses that transfer directly into a specific major at Concordia, without listing the requirements for the entire AS or AAS degree program.

    Articulation Agreements

    Articulation agreements are formal agreements between two colleges or universities that document the transfer policies for a specific degree program. These agreements allow students graduating with associate’s degrees in technical, career, or liberal arts field to transfer directly into one of Concordia’s bachelor’s degree programs.

  • Interested in transferring with fewer obstacles while saving time and money and most importantly – your credits? Ask an academic advisor at your current institution about Interstate Passport, which offers:

    • An early milestone of completion on the way to a credential
    • Assurance that lower-division general education learning will be recognized upon transfer to another Network-member institution
    • The potential for faster time to degree, lower cost, less debt, and maximization of previously earned credits

    Students who transfer into CSP with a Passport from another member institution will not have to repeat or take additional courses to satisfy lower-division general education requirements.
