Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Apply for all the scholarships you can get! Even though this is a private school, with scholarships you can receive, it will come out cheaper or less expensive than other schools! It's true when they say that over 90% of Concordia students are getting some sort of aid.
Jennifer from Beaverton, OR
Concordia is a great school and though it is expensive in my opinion it is well worth at least MOST of the money. The only thing i have room to complain about is the meal plan (The cafeteria is open only a few hours a day and around the end of the year blocks [method of paying for food] tend to get tight), other than that the rooms are still the largest i have seen out of all the colleges I have visited, the events are fun and ALWAYS going on, sporting events are free to students and fun to go to (we have very good teams and athletes), Classes are personal and easy to work with, the staff is amazing and every other aspect of the College Experience is well represented!
Timothy from San Jose, CA
It is a private university, therefore not that cheap, but you do get a great education.
Edward from Vancouver, WA
It may be slightly expensive to attend, but with scholarships, and financial aid it can very easily be paid off, there are even available scholarships for the campus that may be available.
