Step-by-Step Financial Aid
The following steps will help guide you through Concordia's financial aid process. If at any point you have questions or need personalized assistance, please contact us.
Create a FSA ID. The student, and one parent if a dependent student, need to create an FSA ID online. Your FSA ID remains the same from year to year, so keep it in a safe place and never share it with anyone.
Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To apply for need-based aid, federal grants, work-study, and loans, please complete the FAFSA. To have your information sent to Concordia University Irvine, make sure to include Concordia's school code - 013885.
Please note the FAFSA is a free application. Click here for facts on Financial Aid Consultants and Scholarship Services.
Read all communications received from the Financial Aid Office and provide any requested documentation at your earliest convenience. The first communication will first go by U.S. Mail. All subsequent requests are sent via email. Once you receive notification you have an Eagles email, please activate it immediately.
