So you want to be a Cardinal?

Welcome! We’re glad to have you.

Financial Aid

It's never too early to start thinking about financial aid

Our financial aid application process begins October 1. Visit fafsa.gov with your PRIOR year taxes and our school code, 002247, to complete your FAFSA. Financial Aid packages are released to accepted students in December. If you’re accepted after December, your package will be released following the aforementioned steps.

Tuition Deposit

Reserve your spot now

Our deposit deadline for the fall semester is May 1. A $200 tuition deposit must be made to reserve your spot. You’ll also gain access to our student portal—your one-stop shop for email, financial aid, housing applications, and more. Tuition deposits submitted after May 1 are nonrefundable.

Housing Application

Get priority housing selection

Housing requests begin in January. After we receive your tuition deposit, you’ll be able to apply for housing. Log into your student portal, pay your $300 non-refundable housing deposit, and complete the application. In it, you’ll be able to select a meal plan and connect with roommates. Students who complete the housing application by February 15 will have priority housing selection.

Orientation

Uncommon Orientation

Your Uncommon Orientation begins when you deposit and become a Cardinal. We will walk alongside you to learn more about your career and vocation goals, and to assist you in the process of exploring those areas with purpose and intentionality. Your orientation will be an ongoing experience that allows you to learn more about campus resources, registering for classes, and ensuring you feel prepared for the start of your academic journey at Concordia.

Admitted Student Day

Connect with us

This is your chance to experience life at Concordia, so join us for a unique virtual experience aimed at helping you connect with faculty, staff, and—of course—your fellow Cardinals! You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about your future housing options and hear more about life on campus such as campus ministry, student clubs, organizations, and more..
