Following news of the Concordia Portland campus closure, we have been working diligently to provide resources and support to Portland students as they consider transition options and plan for their next educational steps. To streamline information, we are offering two interactive video sessions to answer questions about our graduate education programs.

If you’re a Portland student who is interested in Concordia University Wisconsin or Ann Arbor’s graduate education programs, you can get all of your questions answered in these sessions. During each one, you’ll get a chance to hear from the following individuals:

  • Dr. Michael Uden, vice provost of enrollment and engagement
  • Gretchen Jameson, senior vice president of university affairs
  • Dr. Steven Witt, program director and professor of graduate education

They’ll be addressing some of the common questions we’ve been getting from Portland students, including:

  • When to start the enrollment process
  • Whether or not you should remain in your current Portland course and other next step suggestions
  • How many credits you can transfer into our graduate education programs and Ed.D. doctoral program
  • What you should consider regarding your financial aid needs
  • What program completion timelines are possible, should you decide to transfer
  • How best to explore transfer program options and get to know CUW and CUAA better

If you have other questions or concerns, you’ll get the opportunity to ask those in real-time and dialogue directly with the facilitators.

We currently have two video sessions scheduled via Zoom. If you’re interested in attending, bookmark this page and use the links below to join the session at its scheduled time.
