Concordia College Admissions Overview Despite its acceptance rate of 24%, Concordia College in Alabama is not a fairly selective school, due mostly to its small size. Students with average grades have a good chance of being admitted. To apply, students will need to send in a completed application form (which can be found online) and high school transcripts. Scores from either the SAT or ACT are optional. A campus visit is not required, but is strongly encouraged for interested students. For more information, be sure to check out the school's website, and feel free to contact the admissions office with any questions.
