Liberal Studies Transfer Students
Welcome to your new University home!
We are glad that you have chosen Concordia as the place you will finish your degree and teaching credential.
Most of the information you need regarding admissions, coursework, and our program will be found under the Elementary teachers webpage. However, as transfer students into the Liberal Studies major, you most likely have questions about transferring units.
There are two separate unit transfer tasks. The first is transferring units to CUI for general credit, and the second is transferring units for your Liberal Studies major. The first task is done by the Registrar’s office. The second is done with your academic advisor in conjunction with the School of Education.
The Liberal studies major is a state-approved major for elementary teachers. This major has been designed to best prepare students for passage of the CSET examination. It is for this reason that classes transferred to CUI for credit in the Liberal Studies major must follow more strict guidelines than general credit transfer classes. We will guide you through this process once you complete the admissions process.
When picking coursework to complete at another university or college for transferring into the Liberal Studies major, it is important that those classes hold to the academic rigor and content material equivalent to the courses at CUI. Once you are accepted to the University the transferring of credits process will happen and your plan for completion of your degree will be created.
If you are planning to take credits outside CUI before joining our program, check with academic counselors at your college to check for alignments with our program. Questions about transferability of particular classes can also be done by contacting the director of undergraduate teacher education programs at [email protected] or call xt. 1355.
