All fees, whether paid by a person or organization, shall be paid in United States dollars. Should payment be received in any foreign currency, the amount received and credited to the account of the student will be the net amount after any loss or gain due to the exchange return between the currency and U.S. dollars, in addition to any cost or service charge to effect the exchange conversion.

Tuition

The tuition fee for each graduate and professional program is established each academic year. Fees are to be paid online at my.cuw.edu or to the Business Office before the class begins.

Payment Information

The University requires full payment of each semester’s charges before or at the beginning of the semester’s classes. Notification from the Financial Aid Office of grants, scholarships, or a Guaranteed Student Loan will be accepted in lieu of payment by cash. Only one half of such aid will be credited to the student’s account for each semester. Failing to observe this schedule or to make other satisfactory arrangements with the Business Office will result in the student’s forfeiting the right to begin or continue work at Concordia.

If students must rely on others for financial resources, they are held responsible for seeing to it that financial sponsors observe the payment schedule.

All fee payments should be addressed to Concordia University Wisconsin, 12800 N. Lake Shore Drive, Mequon, Wisconsin 53097. ATTN: Business Office.

Study Abroad Grant

Students who meet all eligibility requirements can be awarded up to $1,000. Eligibility requirements and application instructions can be found in the Study Abroad Handbook at www.cuw.edu.
