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.

Financial Aid

You can start your financial aid application process as soon as you apply

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.

NEXT STEPS
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.
