Concordias Financial Aid Office makes paying for college a smooth and affordable experience. 100% of eligible students receive some sort of financial aid, with over 95% of CU freshmen receiving gift aid (grants and scholarships) averaging nearly $11,000 per student.
In the meantime, feel free to e-mail our office with any questions or give us a call at 503-280-8514 (local) or 1-800-321-9371 (long distance). Were more than happy to help answer any questions you may have.
How do I get my hands on this money?
We will send you a financial aid package, detailing the types and amounts of aid we can offer, after the following requirements are met. (For more information see Applying for Aid.)
- You have been accepted to the University. Your application file must be complete and include all transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, and application fees before you are considered for acceptance.
- You must also file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can submit the FAFSA online at fafsa.ed.gov. The form can also be obtained at any high school or college, including Concordia. Send the results to Concordia University, Portland (Title IV School Code 003191). Once submitted and processed, a Student Aid Report (SAR) will be sent to you. This will include your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) an amount the government expects that you and your family can reasonably contribute toward your education. Concordia uses this figure to determine financial aid eligibility.
Once youve been accepted and filed the FAFSA with CU as a recipient, well let you know exactly how much aid you have qualified for (including federal, state, and University monies) in your personalized financial aid package.
