Additional Notes: 

Concordia offers three emphasis options:¬† Addiction Studies, Child and Family Development, and Graduate School Preparation. Visit the Psychology Department’s website at:

Graduates of PCC’s two-year Alcohol and Drug Counseling degree may transfer course work to Concordia University for the Addiction Studies option.¬†Students who have taken courses in this discipline at PCC (or who plan to), should contact Concordia’s transfer advisor for more information.

The Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer Degree is the preferred degree for students transferring from Portland Community College to Concordia University for the B.A. Psychology major.

In addition to the departmental requirements listed above, students planning to transfer to Concordia also must complete coursework for university admission and lower division general education requirements (if not completing an AAOT). Requirements for Bachelor's of Arts degrees and Bachelor's of Science degrees are built right into the curriculum for each major. The religion/theology studies requirements can be deferred to one's junior year. 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.
