  • The federal government requires each school to develop its own standard allowances for living expenses (which includes books and supplies, room, board, transportation and personal expenses) as a means to award financial aid in a consistent manner for all students.
  • We have provided this tool as a means for you and your family to investigate the different costs that may be associated with attending Concordia University. Due to your personal choices, Concordia’s standard allowance for some expenses may not match your actual costs. In order to maximize your financial aid, it is important to make wise decisions regarding living arrangements and choice of lifestyle, since Concordia is unable to award more financial aid in an academic year than the determined standard allowances.
