Financial Aid

Helping students and their families afford the college education of their choice is a top priority for us at Concordia. Thanks to generous financial aid packages, your cost to attend CUW could be close to what you'd pay to attend one of Wisconsin's public universities. Think about this:

  • 98% of CUW undergraduate students receive financial aid
  • The average financial aid award package is almost $21,000
  • The average needs-based scholarship and grant award is $13,500
  • You've got more resources available to you than you think.

We'll help you put together a financial aid package that fits your needs.

Types of Financial Aid Available

Financial aid is available from many sources based on financial need, field of study, academic record, underrepresented minorities, or your area of residence.

  • CUW scholarships and grants
  • Outside scholarships
  • Federal work-study opportunities
  • Student loans
  • Local businesses and civic organizations
  • Faith-based organizations
  • Your local school district
  • Your employer (or your parents' employer)

Don't worry. We'll help you through the process step by step.

Quick Financial Aid Tips

A few quick tips as you get started:

  • Be proactive
  • Apply to every scholarship you qualify for
