How to Apply for Financial Aid
More than 99 percent of our students receive financial aid, with an average of $21,000 per year. But first you need to apply for it. It's easy. Here's how:1. Gather your tools. Social Security numbers for you and anyone else whose financial information you are submitting; your driver's license number; records of untaxed benefits received; federal income tax returns for you and your parents or stepparents (if you are a dependent); W-2 forms
2. Get your FAFSA PIN. The PIN allows you to electronically sign your Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
3. Submit your FAFSA online. Remember to designate Concordia College (code 002346) as your school of choice. FAFSA On The Web Worksheet
4. Keep a copy of both your and your parents’ Federal Income Tax Returns.
5. Submit to the Office of Financial Aid any requested information and/or documents that have been requested.
6. Review your information and check the status of your application in C-Port. Read more information about C-Port here.
7. Report any external scholarships in C-Port.
8. Contact the Financial Aid Office at (218) 299-3010 or (800) 699-9897 if your circumstances change or are unusual.
We'll let you know your financial aid award as we receive the FAFSA information, starting in March.
Other Helpful Information
Half of your awarded financial aid will be credited to your account each semester. Work study earnings will be paid directly to you.
If your family resources become strained, contact the Financial Aid Office about supplemental loan programs. If your financial situation is substantially worse, you may choose to appeal your financial aid.
Concordia retains the right to revise the aid package if other resources or external financial aid become available or the financial information originally submitted is incorrect. The college will also increase the aid package if unusual circumstances merit the change and if funds are still available.
