There’s a growing movement in education. A call for educators who want to advance the classroom, who want to face change with knowledge, and who want to meet urgency with innovation. It’s a movement that needs you.
As one of the largest and most respected forces in learning today, Concordia University-Portland is leading the charge. We believe a Master of Education or Doctorate of Education degree is key to such advancement, so we’ve committed to its affordability.January 8, 2018

The Priority Scholarship is being offered for the January 8, 2018 MEd start date and the January 8, 2018 EdD start date. Concordia Portland reserves the right to extend the promotion, but cannot guarantee availability beyond these start dates at this time.
How will the grant be awarded?
All Concordia scholarships are pro-rated 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.
INTRODUCING OUR FREE TEXTBOOKS PROMOTION
Yes! Our Free Textbooks offer is an investment in you. Concordia Portland 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, 2018 and all EdD students who start on January 8, 2018.
Will “suggested” or “non-required” supplemental reading materials also be free?
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.
How will it work?
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 2 courses. Once they login 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.
How do I qualify for free textbooks?
Complete all of your application materials, be admitted to the Master of Education or Doctorate of Education degree program and enroll to start on January 8, 2018 for MEd or January 8, 2018 for EdD.
I have already started my degree at Concordia University-Portland. Do I get free textbooks now?
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, 2018 (MEd) or January 8, 2018 (EdD).
Are shipping costs covered?
Yes, ground shipping is covered within the amount of your voucher. International shipping costs are covered if necessary.
Can I keep the E-books?
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.
What if I withdraw from the program?
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.
Will this promotion apply to later start dates?
The Free Textbooks promotion is being offered for the January 8, 2018 (MEd) and January 8, 2018 (EdD) start dates. Concordia Portland reserves the right to extend the promotion, but cannot guarantee availability beyond these start dates at this time.
