(Fargo, ND) -- Concordia College is one of 12 private colleges and universities in Minnesota now offering a Transfer Admission Guarantee to community college students who meet certain eligibility requirements.  

"So each institution has maybe their own admission requirements. At Concordia we accept a 2.75 GPA for guaranteed admission, and this aligns really well for us with the kinds of credentials students who transfer to the college usually bring, said Concordia College Provost Dr. Susan Larson.

Larson says students who wish to transfer must first complete AA degrees. Under the program, all 60 credits earned will count toward their bachelor's degrees. Minimum GPA requirements vary among the 12 participating colleges and universities. The colleges and universities participating in the program are listed below.

Augsburg University
Bethany Lutheran College
Bethel University
College of Saint Benedict
The College of St. Scholastica
Concordia College, Moorhead
Concordia University, St. Paul
Hamline University
Saint John’s University
Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota
