Payment of tuition is due prior to the first day of classes.
You may view your University charges and credits online at MyRecords. After you login, from the Main Menu select "My Student Bill" to view and pay your account.
Payments made by your employer or other sponsor:
If your bill is being paid by your employer or an outside agency that requires University billing, please provide documentation indicating address and authorized amount to be billed and return this documentation with the remittance portion of your bill by the due date. In addition, you must complete and mail the Tuition Assistance Form. If your sponsor is not paying all of your charges, you are responsible for payment of the difference by the due date. If payment is not received for your share of the charges by the due date, a late penalty will be assessed.
Financial Aid and Scholarship Recipients:
If your financial aid and/or scholarship(s) do not cover your semester charges it is your responsibility to seek payment options for the amount of tuition remaining. Payment Plans are available for an additional fee. If you have submitted your Federal Aid application (FAFSA), submitted your Concordia Financial Aid application and received acceptance into a post-baccalaureate or graduate program, please contact Ken Dillinger at 949-854-8002 ext. 1121 for information on your Financial Aid eligibility. You may be responsible for full or partial class payment depending on your aid package.
Federal Stafford Loans:
A Loan Entrance Interview and Master Promissory Note must be completed in order for your loan to disburse. For further questions, please contact our financial aid office at 949-854-8002 ext. 1136.
Your Student Bill:
Your student bill is generated and mailed once you register for classes. You may also view your semester charges through Banner Web. Payments MUST be received by the due date, whether you receive a Student Bill or not. You may choose to pay for each class at a time; however, a financial hold will be placed on your account until your semester tuition is paid in full. It is the sole responsibility of the student to adhere to payment deadlines of his /her tuition. If you make changes resulting in increased costs (after the payment deadline), you are required to make full payment of the difference when the changes are made. Tuition fees are assessed when the student registers.
Your tuition is due prior to the first day of class to avoid late fees.
Please Note: You are not eligible for financial aid unless you are accepted into a post-baccalaureate or graduate program. Further, you are not eligible to receive financial aid for any courses taken prior to admission to the graduate program. Students accepted after the first day of class will be eligible to receive financial aid for all future classes beginning with the second course.
Proceeds originating from student aid in excess of your account charges may be requested. Please contact the Bursar's Office for refund information. All financial aid requirements and documentation must be completed and approved before your refund is disbursed. For further information, call (949) 854-8002 ext 1114 or 1134 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
