The application for financial aid at Concordia begins with the FAFSA. The FAFSA is available in December of each year, and we recommend completing the FAFSA as soon as it's available. Make sure to select the correct academic year when completing the FAFSA as more than one academic year will be available to choose.
Nearly 100% of our students receive financial aid annually. But first you need to apply for it.
Check out the steps to apply for financial aid below.
You must be enrolled as a full-time student (at least 12 credits or 15 credits if receiving a Minnesota Grant) to receive the financial aid that has been awarded to you.
If your family resources become strained or substantially worse, visit with the Financial Aid Office about your options. You may choose to appeal your financial aid.
There are no institutional grants or scholarships available for a master's program. Eligibility for loan programs will be based on the FAFSA.
There are no institutional grants or scholarships or federal aid available for the Accelerated Nursing program. Some private loans require that you complete a FAFSA.
International students are not eligible for federal financial aid awards and should not file a FAFSA. Concordia does offer International Student Scholarships based on academic ability and financial need.
Your financial aid award starts with the Excellence Scholarship (determined by your high school GPA or ACT/SAT scores) – but it doesn't end there.

It's not just great aid that makes Concordia an excellent value. Our Four Years, For Real means we're committed to making sure our students graduate in four years (unlike many regional universities where degree completion can take five or even six years).
