Through its Correspondence Study Program, the College of Graduate and Innovative Programs offers distance education instruction for undergraduate credit. The courses are prepared and taught by members of the Concordia faculty, and are considered resident credits. Typically, courses are divided into a number of lessons, each requiring a written report or its equivalent. Testing also may be a part of the course.
Correspondence courses provide flexibility to students who are not able to participate in a traditional classroom setting but want to continue to learn. Individuals who are Concordia University Chicago students must have an
advisor’s approval before registering for a Correspondence course.
Current students are expected to complete their course at the end of the semester in which they enroll. If the course is not completed, at the end of the semester the student will receive a grade of Incomplete and will have the
following semester to finish the course requirements. For undergraduate degree-seeking students, Correspondence courses may qualify for financial aid. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for additional information.
Guest students receive one year in which to complete their course. One six month extension is available if needed. Guest students may register any time of the year.
