Concordia’s Tuition Assistance program is designed to provide financial aid to students who have met the Admissions criteria and whose families are not financially able to afford the full cost of tuition. It has been and remains a goal of Concordia and its Board of Directors to ensure that financial need does not stand in the way of a high quality, Christian education for students who desire it.
Concordia’s Tuition Assistance program is supported and funded through the generous donations and gifts of Alumni, Parents, Friends of Concordia, Faculty/Staff, Congregations, Businesses/Corporations and Foundations.
- Tuition Assistance is need-based and mission-driven. Awards are not merit-based. Awards are determined solely on a family’s ability to pay.
- Tuition Assistance results in reduced tuition – it does not reduce other fees and expenses. It is not a loan or scholarship, and it does not need to be paid back.
- The Tuition Assistance process is handled independently from the Admissions process.
- The Tuition Assistance application process uses a third party assessment partner (FAST) to objectively evaluate each family’s financial situation and ability to pay.
- To be eligible for consideration by the Tuition Assistance Committee:
- A student must have initiated the Admissions process and submitted an application to attend Concordia.
- The Tuition Assistance application must be verified by FAST, including all required financial information and supporting documentation on file.
