Admission & Financial Aid
Undergraduate students choose Concordia University Chicago because CUC meets their goals for:
Practical preparation for a satisfying career
Hands-on experiences that qualify them for the best graduate programs
Critical thinking and communication skills that last a lifetime
But it’s not just about the destination—they also choose CUC so they can be inspired during their collegiate career and beyond. Read what our students are saying about CUC...
One of the reasons I chose CUC is because it's close to Chicago, where the networking and career opportunities are huge.
Making tie blankets and distributing them to the homeless in downtown Chicago had a big impact on me. It definitely changed my perspective about a lot of things, and it reinforced what I had learned in class to go out and experience it for myself.
Besides there being small classes, what I find really comforting at CUC is that the professors know my name, they know me personally, and they care about me as an individual.
As a CUC student, Chicago is an incredible resource, and the fact that it's so accessible is great. I love how we have this awesome campus community, but Chicago is right in our backyard.
Music is really special to me and keeps me sane. As a member of the Wind Symphony, we get to tour the country, and it's amazing being able to go with this awesome group of people and perform.
