*Though Concordia may accept some of PCC's 100/200 level courses in lieu of their junior or senior level counterparts, students will need to fulfill the minimum number of 300/400 level credits required for graduation at Concordia.

Additional Recommended Courses

HST 201, 202, 203; GEO 105, 106, 107; PS 201, 202. PCC offers courses that fulfill only some of the core requirements at Concordia (see above and see page 3). Where equivalent courses are not available, it is expected that students will wait and take those requirements at Concordia.


All Education majors at Concordia must satisfy requirements for two licensure levels. The combinations include Early Childhood and Elementary, or Elementary and Middle School, or Middle School and High School. Additional courses may be needed to satisfy educational endorsements in specialty areas.

Students pursuing a middle school licensure must choose from the following endorsements Biology, Business, Chemistry, Health, Language Arts, Marketing, Mathematics (basic or advanced), Physical Education, Social Studies, or Art.

Some of the endorsement requirements may be taken at PCC as part of an Associate's degree. Contact Concordia's Transfer Advisor for more information. In addition to the departmental requirements listed above, students also must complete coursework for university admission, general education requirements, (if not completing an AAOT), and BA requirements. Meet with a PCC Academic Advisor to develop an effective transfer plan that will meet your individual needs.


PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
