Financial Aid

Financial Aid Available

Obtaining a quality education today represents not only an investment of time and energy, but a substantial financial commitment as well. While the responsibility for financing university costs belongs to students and their families, the university will assist in meeting this financial obligation. Concordia University Irvine helps its students discover every possible source of aid. Every effort is made to identify the student’s needs and to create a financial aid package to meet those needs.

Federal Aid: Federal Direct Loans, Federal Work Study, Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Direct PLUS Loans for Parents and Graduate Students

  • State Aid such as Cal Grant

  • Institutional Aid: Academic Scholarships (Trustee, Dean, Provost, Regents, Transfer, Honors, Presidential Honors), Athletic Scholarships, Christ College Grant, Church Vocation Scholarship, Department Awards (Forensics, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts), Eagle's Award, First Generation Grant, Friends of Concordia Grant, Lutheran Student Award
