Planning for Post-Secondary

Paying for University

Start planning as early as possible! If you’re like most university students, you’ll use more than one source of money to pay for school. Most students use a mix of savings, family support, summer employment and part-time earnings, scholarships, student loans, and grants.  With good planning and solid financial habits, you can minimize the amount of money you borrow.

Estimating University Costs 2016-2017

Beginning in mid-August you will be able to view your Statement of Account through your Online Services.  Should you need a print out of your fee statement, you can contact Student Accounts.  

When and how do I pay my tuition?

Fees are due the first day of class and can be paid in-person at the Student Accounts Office during normal office hours or online.  Fees can also be paid through most major banks and Credit Unions by setting up Concordia University of Edmonton as the payee and using your Student ID number as your account number.  Billing is updated 24 hours after any course changes. Should you have any questions, please contact studentaccounts@concordia.ab.ca.

When and how do I apply for student loan funding?

The Alberta Government student loan application for 2016-2017 is now available.  Students who want assistance completing an Alberta student loan application may wish to participate in one of Concordia's Free Hands-On Sessions.  Financial Aid advisors will be available to answer all your questions.  Click here to register for a session.
