Transfer Made Easy

Transferring to Concordia University Irvine is an easy process! We waive the application fee for veterans and dependents using VA Educational Benefits.

Concordia University Irvine is not an impacted campus! We admit on a rolling basis and have staff dedicated solely to making sure your transfer process is easy. Once your application file for admission is complete, meaning that we have your application, official high school and all college transcripts, we will make a decision within days. Give us a call!

Veterans who are using the Ch. 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill®, have 36 months of active duty time, and qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Program, are eligible for unlimited scholarships at an unlimited dollar amount—meaning you can attend a private university and have your tuition and mandatory fees fully covered!
