Summer School Options
Summer School financial aid is part of the preceding school year meaning that summer financial aid is based off of the school year that just finished.
There is no institutional grant or scholarship available in the summer. If you are a MN State Grant recipient the Financial Aid Office will automatically check to see if you have any remaining MN Grant eligibility for summer.
Loans are often the primary source of funding for Summer School. In order to be eligible for federal loan programs including the Federal Parent PLUS Loan, a student must be registered for at least ½ time (6 credits or greater) during summer and have a valid FAFSA on file with Concordia. If a student has used all of their federal loan eligibility for the academic year (Fall/Spring) they would not have any federal loan eligibility in the student's name only even if they are enrolled ½ time or greater. Private student loans which typically require a credit-worthy co-signer can be used for summer school costs.
If a student is enrolled less than ½ time (under 6 credits) the only option is a private student loan.
Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you would like to discuss options for summer school.
List of Lenders
Concordia College maintains a list of private loan lenders as a service to students. Students are free to select a private loan program that is not on this list. If a student chooses to borrow from a private loan program, the choice of a lender or loan program is entirely the choice of the student.
There are no institutional grants or scholarships available for summer. Students may apply for Grants or Loans depending on need.More about Loans More About Grants
