Incoming Concord University class largest in ten years

The incoming class of 2027 at Concord University is set to be the biggest in years, as the the incoming class of students for the fall 2023 semester is the largest since 2013.

472 freshman have enrolled, and another 141 students are transferring in from another institution.

“It’s exciting to see the increase in our student numbers as an indication of growth post-COVID. Our campus is thriving with eager students, dedicated faculty and staff who are all engaged in creating an exceptional learning environment,” President Kendra Boggess said.

The students are coming from 32 counties in West Virginia… plus 16 states and 17 countries.

“We haven’t seen this significant of an enrollment increase for incoming students in a long time.  It’s kind of unexpected to be up when enrollment seems to be declining around us.  We feel very fortunate to be in this position,” Tammy Brown, chief enrollment management officer, said.

Ninety-six percent of the incoming students are receiving some kind of financial aid.
