A CALL WE'D LOVE
TO CHAT APPLY
There’s something very special about the education professionals we admit into Concordia’s programs. They’re not in this just for a salary boost or promotion, but rather for the greater good. Our students can envision how their newfound skills will greatly benefit their community and are motivated by an innate responsibility to serve future generations. So when it comes to finances, we work hard to make sure nothing stops them, because we believe in their value.
MEd and EdD applicants: Complete your application for admission, statement of intent, and transcript request form within 72 hours of your interview with your enrollment specialist for the January 8, 2018 or January 8, 2018, start dates for any of Concordia’s online Graduate Education degree programs.
The Priority Scholarship can be combined with the Back to School Scholarship for a total value of $3,000 toward the MEd and $6,000 toward the EdD. It is also stackable with other scholarships. Please check with your enrollment specialist for more details.
The maximum available scholarship amount for a student who is a veteran or the spouse of a veteran is $5,000 toward the MEd and $10,000 toward the EdD. Military veterans or their spouses can elect to stack the Military Scholarship with the Seasonal to School Scholarship, thereby maximizing their available scholarship amount.
The Priority Scholarship is being offered for the January 8th, MEd start date and the January 8th, EdD start date. Concordia reserves the right to extend the scholarship to later start dates but cannot guarantee availability beyond September at this time.
All Concordia scholarships are prorated over the duration of your program. If a student elects to withdraw from the program prior to completion, they will not be able to realize the full value of the scholarship.
Every student who is accepted into a qualifying degree program is entitled to the Seasonal Scholarship: $2,000 for MEd students and $5,000 for EdD students. Please contact an enrollment specialist at (888) 986-8148 for more information.
Active-duty or veteran military service members and their spouses can receive:
Active-duty applicants will need to show a current pay stub; veterans will need to verify honorable or general discharge status.

Here are the details on the free textbooks offer currently available for the January 8th MEd and January 8th EdD cohorts.
Yes! Our free textbooks offer is an investment in you. Concordia has agreed to assume the costs of textbooks, e-books, and other required materials and their shipping costs for all MEd students who start on January 8 and EdD students who start on January 8.
No. The free textbook offer applies to required reading materials only. Students who wish to purchase copies of suggested and/or supplemental resources will still need to do so at their own expense.
Prior to the start of the first course, registered and enrolled students will be sent an email with a voucher amount necessary to cover the required materials in the first two courses. Once they log in to the online bookstore, select the appropriate books, and confirm their shipping address, the books and/or e-books will be on the way.
If there is an option for the student to pick between textbooks or e-books, the voucher amount will be enough to cover the e-book version. Choosing textbooks when given an option may require the student to pay an additional amount out of pocket.
There will be additional vouchers sent throughout the program to provide the credit to order required books and e-books for future courses.
Any remaining balance on a voucher will expire and not roll over to the next term. Students will receive new vouchers for future courses.
Students are able to select their shipping method; however, ground shipping is the method included in your voucher. Students can choose an alternate method of shipping at their own expense.
Complete all of your application materials, be admitted, and enroll to start on January 8, for MEd or January 8, for EdD.
No. The free textbook offer is for new students who are enrolling for the first time at Concordia University-Portland and are starting their program on January 8 (EdD) or January 8 (MEd).
Yes, ground shipping is covered within the amount of your voucher. International shipping costs are covered if necessary.
E-book access is controlled with a license from the publisher. In most cases, the license is good for 180 or 365 days after delivery, depending on the publisher. Access to the materials will expire at the end of the licensing period. Concordia University cannot extend the license on the student’s behalf, and the student will need to purchase access to the materials for themselves if they need or want to extend it.
Students who withdraw from the program forfeit the opportunity to continue receiving free textbooks. Students on a leave of absence will be unable to order new books until they return from leave and re-enter their program.
Concordia reserves the right to extend the promotion to later start dates, but cannot guarantee availability beyond these start dates at this time.
My Enrollment Specialist was extremely helpful and one of the reasons why I signed up; she helped me figure out it was a good fit for me.
If financial aid is of interest, you must first file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your financial aid eligibility. Complete the financial aid process along with your program application to have payment arrangements in place by the start of classes.
Be sure to use Concordia University-Portland’s FAFSA school code: 003191.
Once your FAFSA is submitted and processed, the U.S. Department of Education will send you a Student Aid Report (SAR). This report will include your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which Concordia will use to determine your financial aid eligibility.
If you have been accepted to the relevant online degree program and have decided to file the FAFSA with Concordia as a recipient, you will be notified of exactly how much aid you are eligible for (including federal, state, and institutional funds) in your personalized financial aid package.
For any questions, please contact the Financial Aid office at (888) 244-5140.
