Undergraduate Cost and Financial Aid
Yes, we’re a private university. However, through scholarships and other financial aid, our students pay close to, or in some cases, less than students at larger public universities. Each of our full-time undergraduate students receives financial aid, which isn’t typical at public institutions.
At Concordia, you’ll get a private education at a similar cost to larger public universities. Not to mention perks like free parking (and plenty of parking spots) as well as free admission to athletic events.

Your Private Education with Value(s)
Making Every Dollar Count
At Concordia, your investment goes directly to your academic experience, instead of housing and fees. You'll learn from professors, not assistants, who are experts in their fields and will equip you with the skills and knowledge you'll need to be successful in your vocation.
Here, you'll have countless opportunities to make an impact on campus and in the community. You'll have experiences outside of the classroom that can be hard to find at larger institutions.
Here, your professors are your biggest fans, cheering you on both inside and outside of the classroom. They know you as a person, not a student ID number, leading to meaningful relationships during your time on campus and beyond.

Tuition & Indirect Costs
The cost of attendance reflects the amount of money a typical student is projected to need for school-related expenses during the academic year based on where they live and degree program.
Making College Affordable

Not only will a completed FAFSA streamline the college financial aid process and earn you federal aid in the form of grants and loans, it also helps Concordia figure out how much you can earn in financial aid and scholarships from us.
