Concordia College to cover full tuition for new students in financial need nationwide

(Fargo, ND) -- Concordia College administrators have announced the Concordia Promise, a new program beginning in Fall 2024 that will cover full tuition for any newly-admitted student from across the country whose family has an Adjusted Gross Income below $90,000.

It is renewable for up to four years, with no additional forms to fill out beyond the Concordia College application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

“Reducing the financial burden of education through the Concordia Promise will allow our students to better focus on their mission, their dedication, and their potential to influence the affairs of the world,” said Dr. Colin Irvine, president of Concordia College. “This is a game changer for families in our region and across the country who may have thought a private college education was out of their reach.”

The Concordia Promise includes 100% of standard full-time tuition through a combination of federal and state gift aid and existing Concordia scholarships.

Housing, food, fees, and other additional costs are not included.

“The Concordia Promise is our commitment to make a transformative Concordia education accessible for students from any state, minimizing debt and helping students begin their career or graduate program quickly. This is especially powerful when backed by our four-year graduation guarantee,” said Dr. Susan Larson, provost and dean of the college.
