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

3.75 Average Rating
Honestly, Concordia is not any more expensive than any other University. Of course college in general is expensive. If you wanted a really cheap college a two year program at a technical college would be the way to go. If you want to attend a University however, Concordia is really priced out the same. It seems like it's more expensive by the face cover price but Concordia gives you their own scholarships and grants which makes it even out to other University's. Sometimes it's even cheaper!
Miranda from Kingsford, MI
I could have gone somewhere cheaper, but I am happy with my academic program and with the amount of financial aid I am receiving. I also feel that getting a degree from Concordia will put me in a better position to find a job I am happy with than if I had gone to a public, less expensive school.
Elizabeth from Whitefish Bay, WI
Concordia's educational programs are very worth the money that you pay. Because it is a private university it is a bit more costly but it is VERY worth it. The small class sizes and the atmosphere of the school is very welcoming. Also, because of this, in contrast to a public school, you are not just a number to your professors here, they know you by name and build relationships with you as their students.
Samantha from Hartford, WI
Because it is a private university, it is expensive. (All universities are.) Overall, I think the quality of education given and the location of the campus makes it all worth it. The majority of dorms are in great condition and there are plans to build even better ones. There are scholarships available which makes things easier too!
Hannah from Eden Prairie, MN
For a private school education, I am paying a lot less than I did for public school out of state. If you live in WI, definitly look CUW up. They have more majors that I liked, than other schools, and they also have majors that partner with sister schools. I am an art major and half of my curriculum I learn at Concordia, and the other half I get to go to an ART SCHOOL! Great bang for your buck because many art schools are very expensive.
Sherron from Milwaukee, WI
Very expensive and it is rather hard to pay the tuition, but once you do it's a great time to spend learning, and thinking
Timothy from Sterling Heights, MI
I think Concordia is worth what I pay for it because I know they will always be there to provide me with resources for job searches and the environment of the school is great.
Taylor from Waupaca, WI
Though the college seems more expensive, when you consider the grants and scholarships you will receive WHY WOULDN'T YOU ATTEND???!!!!! A little bit extra money to spend on college will pay off when you are getting a better education and furthering your faith in a nurturing environment.
