Paying for Nursing School and Financial Aid

Pursuing a nursing degree warrants serious financial consideration, but ultimately, it’s a sound career investment. Time is money, and that’s where our ABSN track comes in. At Concordia University Texas, you can earn a quality, accredited nursing degree in as few as 16 months.

Students in second-degree programs may not qualify for federal, state, or university grants/scholarships. However, you might be eligible for a federal or private loan, or a third-party scholarship.

Federal Student Aid

As your first step, Student Financial Services recommends you complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at www.studentaid.gov. Concordia University Texas’ FAFSA school code is 003557.

Once you submit your FAFSA (online submissions usually take 24-48 hours to arrive at the school electronically) and have been admitted into the ABSN track, you will receive a financial aid award packet that will inform you of any grants and/or loans you qualify for that are funded by the state and/or federal government. Student Financial Services will be there to guide you in the financial aid process.

Private Loans

Federal student aid may not cover the total cost of attendance for our ABSN track. So, it’s a good idea to research private lenders, such as banks or credit unions. It’s best to borrow from an institution with low-interest rates and good terms. Keep in mind, you may need a co-signer on a private loan.

Third-Party Scholarships

Third-party scholarships may be available to help offset your nursing school costs. You can begin your scholarship search by visiting these sites:
