Concordia University has recently unveiled the Concordia Promise, an exciting initiative to support a variety of opportunities for advanced learning and higher education.
The Concordia Promise is a scholarship that offers affordable Dual Credit courses for students attending Christian high schools. The Concordia Promise scholarship reduces the cost of tuition from $200 per credit to $50 per credit.*
CONCORDIA PROMISE PLUS
The Concordia Promise Plus is a scholarship in the amount paid for Concordia University Dual Credit courses (up to $50 per credit). The scholarship applies to CU tuition after enrollment at CU for an undergraduate degree. Any student taking Concordia University Dual Credit courses while attending a Christian high school is eligible for the Concordia Promise Plus, if the student chooses to attend Concordia University for an undergraduate degree.
ADDITIONAL VALUE FOR PARTNER HIGH SCHOOLS, TEACHERS, AND FAMILIES
Beyond enhancing curricular offerings and providing Christian scholarship funds, the Concordia Promise offers partner high schools additional benefits. Concordia Promise Partner Schools can receive an assortment of supplemental programs such as consulting services from Concordia University, professional development opportunities, participation in leadership summits for qualified high school students, and access to Concordia University’s free non-credit online courses focused upon the needs of high school students, teachers, parents, and administrators. Future courses include a free course for teachers in Christian schools on blended learning, a course for high school students on financial literacy, a course for high school students and families focused on “Is College Worth It?” and a course of career explorations to help high school students begin to explore college majors.
DUAL CREDIT COURSES
Concordia University currently offers a variety of fully online Dual Credit courses to help enhance high schools’ offerings of honors-level courses. High schools may also work with Concordia University to arrange face-to-face Dual Credit courses that take place directly on the high school campus. The Concordia Promise provides scholarships to make the Dual Credit courses more affordable for students.
