Concordia Connect 3+1

A Co-Enrollment Path to an Affordable Bachelor's Degree

The Concordia Connect 3+1 program between Concordia University Texas and Austin Community College will help students complete their transition from an associate’s degree to a bachelor’s degree, simply and affordably.

How it works

Participating students will complete an AAS degree at ACC and a BAAS degree taught by visiting Concordia professors. This gives students the opportunity to pursue a four-year degree from a private institution and never have to leave their familiar ACC campuses. During the first three years of study, students pay ACC’s rate of tuition and switch to Concordia’s rate of tuition only during the final year. Classes in the final year of the program will be offered in an accelerated format with options for daytime, nighttime, and weekends.

  • Year 1 and 2: Complete AAS degree at ACC (60 credits)
  • Year 3: Become a Concordia student and complete general education courses at ACC to fill the Texas Core Curriculum (27 credits)
  • Year 4: Finish final year at an ACC campus, but with Concordia instructors and courses (37 credits)

Private college education at ¼ the price

Students pay ACC tuition for the first three years of the program and pay Concordia’s tuition the final year. Financial aid and payment plans are offered all four years of the program.

Easy Admission Process: Completion of an AAS degree from ACC grants automatic admission to CTX for the final two years. No Application Fee!
