International Student Services:
International students must be enrolled full time every fall and spring semester (MBA students must contact their Graduate Program Specialist regarding summer enrollment compliance). Undergraduate students must take a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester to be considered full-time status. Graduate students must take a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester to be considered full-time status (at least one course must be taken the first 8 weeks and one course the second 8 weeks). Only one designated online class may be taken each semester.
International students are not allowed to drop below full-time status unless the students receive permission and a signature from a Designated School Official. Please schedule an appointment at International Student Services for more information.
All official transcript requests are processed by the National Student Clearinghouse. The transcript can be sent electronically by email or in a paper format by USPS mail. If a student selects the paper format and would like to pick it up on campus, please contact the Office of the Registrar as soon as the order is placed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A transcript order is defined as a request for an official transcript to each destination/address; each separate destination/address constitutes a separate order. Each transcript is $8.00 per copy and is available as an electronic transcript or hard-copy transcript. All non-financial obligations to CUC must be cleared in order to prompt the release of CUC transcripts and diplomas.
Paper Transcript(s): An official transcript is usually printed on special watermarked paper. It includes the registrar’s signature and/or the institution’s seal, and should arrive packaged in a sealed envelope from the institution. Paper transcript(s) delivered to Concordia University Chicago by hand or mail will be accepted as long as the envelope containing the transcript(s) remains sealed. If the envelope has been opened, tampered with, damages, or compromised in any way the transcript(s) will be considered unofficial.
E-transcript(s) (electronic): An e-transcript is official when sent directly to Concordia University Chicago from the originating institution. E-transcript(s) forwarded to Concordia University Chicago from the applicant/student, whether it be the PDF of the document(s) or a link to the download service, will be considered unofficial.
All non-financial obligations to CUC must be cleared in order to prompt the release of CUC transcripts and diplomas.
Received Documents: The Office of the Registrar does not release received documents such as transcripts, test scores, etc., that have become the property of Concordia University Chicago. Since Concordia-Chicago is not the official, legal custodian of record for any documents that did not originate at the institution, the office does not have the appropriate authority to release them. Therefore, please contact the originating institution or organization that produced the original records in order to obtain such documents.
