Concordia University Academic Scholarships for New Students

All scholarship amounts are based on full-time undergraduate status for the entire academic year to qualify and maintain Concordia University institutional scholarship opportunity. A student needs to maintain the required 2.5 cumulative GPA (Regents, Provost, Dean, Trustee, Transfer Academic) or 3.3 cumulative GPA (Honors) or 3.5 cumulative GPA (Presidential Honors) by the end of each semester for the academic scholarship to be automatically renewed. Concordia University's institutional aid must go towards institutional charges, such as tuition, fees, university housing, and meal plans. It does not cover university class fees, fines, etc. Academic and Athletic Scholarships and Department Awards, including need-based aid, are known as Concordia institutional aid.
