Welcome, Concordia students

We’re ready to help you transfer to Willamette University and achieve your educational goals.

We were surprised and saddened by the news of Concordia University's closure. We realize this is a difficult time for you, and our hearts go out to the entire Concordia community.

We just want you to know that we’re ready to help you map out a plan for completing your degree. Our staff will give you clear and timely information about how your credits will transfer to Willamette, and we’ll make sure your transition to our community is as seamless as possible.

Take some time to review the resources below, and feel free to contact Cady Campbell at or 503-375-5363 if you have any questions. View information for Concordia MBA students.


How to apply

  • Submit the Common Application, official transcripts from all prior institutions attended, and a College Report from Concordia.
  • For Concordia students, Willamette is waiving the application fee, high school transcript, and letters of recommendation.

Steps for financial aid

  • Concordia students are automatically considered for merit aid when they apply.
  • 99 percent of students receive financial aid with the typical scholarship amount ranging from $11,000 to $25,000 per year.
  • Concordia students should submit a FAFSA for need-based aid. Willamette’s FAFSA school code is 003227.

Transfer credit

  • Willamette will accept all courses taken by Concordia students for their general education requirements.
  • If you’ve completed Concordia’s general education requirements, you’ve automatically satisfied the general education requirements at Willamette.
  • If you’ve completed the first year of study toward a BA or BS, you will have satisfied most of Willamette’s general education requirements. You'll still have to complete the equivalent of the BA “intercultural understanding” requirement if you haven't already done so, along with a social science elective.
