2. Submit Your Enrollment Deposit (First-Year Students)

Admitted first-year students are required to submit a $200 enrollment deposit to reserve their place in the entering class as well as start the class registration process. The deposit is applied to your first semester tuition at Concordia and is not a separate fee.

The deposit is non-refundable after May 1, 2019 for Fall 2019 enrollment; December 1, 2019 for Spring 2020 enrollment.

3. Attend Admitted Student Day - Registration Now Open!

You will have the opportunity to finalize your class registration*, meet and mingle with faculty, staff, and students and learn about all the resources available to you at Concordia.  Attending this event is mandatory for enrollment.

*Note: The $200 enrollment deposit is required to start the class registration process for first-year students.  If you have questions about payment, please contact your admissions counselor.

4. Review Housing Information - On or Off Campus

Students Living On Campus

To be placed in an on campus residence hall, please complete and submit the housing application.  First-year students must also submit the $200 enrollment deposit in order to be granted a housing assignment.  The housing application will not be processed without payment.

The first round of housing assignments will be emailed in June. Applications received after the first round of assignments will be assigned as they are received.
