The Accounting Office has two weeks to process refunds for students after Concordia University Texas receives the funds.

18 Important Information About Concordia University Texas Concordia University Texas is an award-winning institute of higher education dedicated to providing a quality liberal arts education with Christian values to develop and nurture leaders for a changing world. Concordia University Texas is owned by The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and is a member of the highly respected Concordia University System in which more than 31,000 students are enrolled nationwide. Our graduate faculty throughout Texas demonstrates commitment to the mission of the university. With classes currently meeting in the Austin, Dallas-Ft. Worth, and San Antonio areas, our delivery model features small classes led on-site by an instructor with a doctorate from a fully-accredited institution. Admissions Information In order to be admitted to Concordia University Texas M.Ed. program, students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale of all undergraduate work completed, or have completed 12 hours of graduate coursework with a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. For the Initial Teaching Certification program, students must have a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA to be admitted. If the cumulative GPA is below 2.5, the University can look at just the last 60 credit hours earned. If those are 2.5 or higher, a student can be admitted. If your GPA does not meet the minimum requirements, you will be required to submit an essay to be reviewed by the Graduate Education Committee. For essay details, please call the Graduate Information Office at (800) All documents on page 2 must be submitted in order to be considered for admission, including official sealed transcripts showing a baccalaureate degree and any graduate level coursework, three graduate recommendation forms, and a copy of your current valid teaching certificate (copy of certificate not required for Initial Teacher Certification or Sports Administration programs). Admission to the university does not guarantee a seat in a cohort. Transferring Credits The College of Education will accept up to 6 graduate credit hours in transfer from accredited colleges or universities toward a graduate degree. Any course used toward a degree must have been completed prior to beginning M.Ed. course work at Concordia University Texas and have been taken in the last three years to be considered. Cohort & Tuition Information Tuition is $540 per credit hour for the academic year for face-to-face programs, and $540 per credit hour for the online programs. Although most of our off-campus programs are scheduled to meet one night per week at the same time and location (two nights a week for the initial certification program), we reserve the right to change meeting times and/or locations due to any extenuating circumstances. These programs are dependent on a minimum enrollment of 12 and class size is limited to 22 students (18 for online programs). Accreditation & Quality Concordia University Texas is a nonprofit university that is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award Associate s, Bachelor s, and Master s degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia , or call (404) for questions about the accreditation of Concordia University Texas. Concordia University Texas is also accredited by The State Board for Educator Certification, a branch of the Texas Education Agency.
