Concordia University Texas understands that continuing your college education is a substantial investment in your future and we are prepared to provide you with specific information to help you accomplish this goal.
Concordia University Texas focuses on assisting all eligible students in finding options that will allow them to finance their college education. Financial Aid options may include scholarships and grants, federal loans, and other payment options.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
When a student submits the FAFSA, it is sent to the Federal Student Aid’s Central Processing System (CPS). While at the CPS, the student’s FAFSA goes through a series of edits to check for inconsistencies in the application. In addition, the CPS initiates several database matches with:
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Department of Homeland Security (formerly Immigration and Naturalization Service)
- National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)
- Selective Service System
- U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
If a discrepancy arises as the CPS processes the student’s application and performs data matches, the student’s FAFSA is flagged and the student may not be eligible for federal student aid until s/he resolves the discrepancy. It is important that the student understands that some discrepancies will prevent the CPS from calculating the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
