Accreditation and Mission

Concordia University’s online degree programs, including the Doctorate of Education degrees and Master of Education degrees, are accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

Affiliated with the Concordia University System, including 10 campuses located throughout the United States, Concordia University Portland was founded more than 100 years ago and is regionally accredited by the NWCCU.

Concordia University Mission

Concordia is a Christian university preparing leaders for the transformation of society.

As an accredited university, Concordia University pursues online learning with the same passion and commitment to excellence that has marked its 100-year history.

Concordia University’s accredited online courses are rich in learner-to-instructor and learner-to-learner interactivity. We balance our accredited courses to offer learners maximized flexibility in terms of coursework completion, while encouraging the rigor that characterizes a quality, accredited (and often condensed) academic experience. Online degree program courses are seldom easier or less time-consuming than face-to-face courses.

Online students form a diverse learning community that requires regular participation and nurturing to maximize the learning potential. The progress is really what you make of it. If you are looking for a correspondence course, where you can work in isolation outside of a structured schedule, Concordia University’s online courses are not a good fit for you. If, however, you are seeking a stimulating and intellectually challenging environment, from a university with regional accreditation, made up of motivated learners, who bring their flexibility to work together to achieve their learning objectives, our Online Learning Center is the right place for you!
