We recognize how the world has been upended by the pandemic. Families all across Houston, the United States, and the world have been faced with business closings, layoffs, furloughs, salary reductions, and limited hours. Many have been stretched in ways they couldn’t have imagined. Last school year, 10% of our students needed tuition assistance due to a variety of reasons in order to attend Concordia. This year, we have already reached a record high in tuition assistance applications, so we anticipate a record high in percent of Concordia students receiving some assistance.
