FINANCIAL AID FOR ADULT UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE INCOMING STUDENTS

financial aid for adult undergraduate & graduate students

More than 90% of Concordia University Undergraduate and more than 75% of our Graduate students receive some sort of financial assistance each year. To get started, begin by submitting the Federal Student Aid Form (FAFSA). Find out more about the FAFSA and ways to finance your degree below.

  • To apply for financial aid at CSP, complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and choose Concordia St. Paul using the code 002347.

    Prefer a mobile app?
    The FAFSA form is on the myStudentAid app, available on the App Store (iOS) or on Google Play (Android)

  • There are a number of criteria that qualify you for a CSP Scholarship, including working at a partner company, graduating from a partner school, or attending a LCMS church. Check out our Scholarships page to see the full list!

    The Concordia St. Paul Scholarship is non-stackable and must be applied at the start of classes. All programs may not qualify for scholarships, please contact your Admissions Counselor for more information. 

  • The Net Price Calculator is a great way for prospective students to find out what going back to school is going to cost. Use this tool to determine your out-of-pocket cost, as well as any scholarships that you may be eligible for.

    Find additional tuition information on our Tuition & Financial Aid website.

  • Find your financial aid award information by logging into Blackboard and clicking under Student Tools > Financial Aid Award. Once logged in, click on the appropriate aid year and view your award.

    VERIFICATION

    Selected for Verification? Verification is the process used to ensure that information submitted on your FAFSA is accurate and complete. If selected, refer to our Tuition & Aid Resources page under the Verification heading and follow the instructions that you will receive in your CSP email.

    Please contact our Verification team at 651-641-8776 or [email protected] with any questions.

  • You’re ready to accept your award! Fantastic, now head to Blackboard and under Student Tools click on Financial Aid Award. Once logged in, find the aid year and accept your award.

    You won’t have aid disbursed in your account until about two weeks after you start classes, but as long as you have accepted the aid and are checking your CSP email for any other notifications from CSP’s Financial Aid department you are ready to go. Congratulations!
