Admission & Financial Aid
Undergraduate students choose Concordia University Chicago because CUC meets their goals for:
Practical preparation for a satisfying career
Hands-on experiences that qualify them for the best graduate programs
Critical thinking and communication skills that last a lifetime
But it’s not just about the destination—they also choose CUC so they can be inspired during their collegiate career and beyond. Read what our students are saying about CUC...
I've grown a lot personally in my time at CUC. I've learned how to use the leadership skills that I didn't know I had and how to advocate for myself, and I've come to realize that there's always someone there to help.
Before I came here, if you had told me I would be Jump Start orientation leader, FRE peer mentor and undergraduate student ambassador, I would never have believed it. I have really developed and come into my own at CUC.
I chose Concordia–Chicago because I felt more at home here. During my senior year in high school, I came to campus for an individual visit. Going into the visit, I was hoping that CUC would be the right place for me—that visit confirmed my hopes.
I'm able to take my hands-on learning back to the classroom to discuss topics with other students and the deaconess director, and we're able to learn from each other.
As an FRE mentor, I have the opportunity to be a leader, helping freshmen adjust to college. I'm really excited to be in the position to help other students in that way.
Being at CUC has helped me see that faith is not just about a belief—it’s a lifestyle. At CUC, you see faith in action all the time. Having all of these spiritual life opportunities helps me stay strong in faith and in serving others.
