  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Concordia is a school that lets you be you. They really try to make sure that you are going to graduate and find work after. They also have many extra-curriculars and leadership opportunities.
Destiny from Tacoma, WA
A great university! Really friendly atmosphere here, teachers are more than willing to help the student. Known mostly for its top nursing program, but has many other programs, such as music, business, and so on.
