Effective July 1, 2016, Concordia University will no longer be accepting credit/debit cards as a form of payment for any student account related charges, including tuition, fees, and housing, food plans if applicable.
The University conducted a thorough analysis of the cost which will be incurred if credit/debit card payments continue to be accepted. Concordia University determined that the acceptance of credit/debit cards as a form of payment for student account related charges should be eliminated to ensure that continuing cost increases do not impact funding available for University programs that benefit our students.
Students have a number of payment options, including electronic checks, cash, check by mail, wire transfer, payment plans, and international fund transfers. Students who previously used credit/debit card payments for long-term financing of educational costs are encouraged to work with the Bursar’s Office staff to determine if more cost-effective financing options are available.
As this important policy change goes into effect, The Bursar’s office staff is available to assist you. Students are encouraged to work with our staff if they need assistance with education financing related questions.
