Preparing students to be ready for anything
At Concordia College, we believe the best college experience will do more than prepare students with lifelong career advantages. A Concordia education develops global competence, character, and compassion, inspiring students to serve the world’s greatest needs.
Because Concordia is dedicated to making education accessible to all students, we reduced tuition costs by more than $15,000 from 2020–2021. Nearly 100% of students receive some sort of financial support, and Concordia will continue to offer substantial aid in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study, and loans to help keep college costs down.
A strong foundation in the liberal arts runs through the entire curriculum. All students complete two integrative learning (PEAK) experiences where the focus is on active learning that occurs outside of the traditional classroom. Some PEAK options include student leadership roles, nontraditional semester-long courses, global learning opportunities, or intensive week-long experiences.
At the heart of the Concordia experience, Cobbers are committed to BREWing (BREW = Becoming Responsibly Engaged in the World) each day, from their studies to life beyond campus. Every course challenges students to discover connections between the subject matter and the impact it has on themselves and the world. With more than 50 short- and long-term study away options, Concordia makes it easy for students to explore beyond the borders of the campus and local community. Upon graduation, students have a strong sense of how they can use their talents to lead a world of change in their first jobs and throughout their lives.
Highly ranked as a place to build a résumé and launch a career, Fargo-Moorhead, Minnesota, attracts students from around the country and world. The community’s low unemployment rate means local employers like Microsoft, Intelligent InSites, RDO Equipment, John Deere, and Sanford Health are consistently hiring our recent graduates.
