    In the case of/As to/As for/Concerning students,

    In the case of/As to/As for/Concerning students, tickets to the science museum are free.



    Do all of the underlined words work with the above wording and mean about the same? Thanks.

    "As for students....." and "Concerning students....." are roughly equivalent

    "In the case of students...." is awkward and I would not use it.

    "As to students".... does not sound right to me; the preposition "to" is usually used when referring to objects not people.
