    10. Should you wish to give someone else permission to make inquiries regarding your financial aid file, or any other information concerning your status at Concordia, you and your proxy must take the appropriate steps to ensure a notarized proxy authorization form and identification documents are submitted to the Financial Aid & Awards Office, or present yourself with your proxy at our office to complete the authorized proxy form in front of an authorized Financial Aid Advisor.

Please see our website for more information regarding US student privacy protection and to download the new proxy authorization.
