First-Time Freshman Cost & Financial Aid

We understand that the financial aspect of college is a big part of your decision-making process, and our goal is to give you the information you need as early as possible.

We continually strive to make the value of your education far outweigh the necessary costs of the investment. Concordia was recently recognized in The Economist as a top college in central Texas for return on investment with an 8.6% annualized rate of return.

  • Scholarships

    Concordia University Texas offers several levels of merit-based institutional scholarships. These scholarships award academic merit, which means they are based on your GPA and test scores. There is no separate scholarship application to complete. Your application to the university is your application for merit scholarships!

    These merit scholarships are determined at the time of acceptance and are renewable each year up to 4 years dependent on your GPA at Concordia.

    To find out if you've been awarded one of our scholarships, please contact your Admissions Counselor at 512-313-4CTX or at
