The definition of a "good school" is different for different people. Admissions criteria, acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how selective an institution is, but they don't say much about the quality of the education or the student experience. However, there are a few good ways to get a better sense how satisfied students are and how well a school supports its student body.
Let's take a closer look at to get a clearer idea of what Concordia offers and if it might be a good fit for you.

Retention is the number of students that stay enrolled at a school over time. This is a way to get a sense of how satisfied students are with their school experience, and if they have the support necessary to succeed in college.

An endowment is the total value of a school's investments, donations, and assets.

As of 2019, the total market value of the school endowment was $6.4 million. The average college endowment was $905 million in 2021. The school spends $6,410 for each full-time student enrolled.
Cost is another important factor when choose a college. Some colleges may have high tuition, but do a better job at meeting students' financial need. Concordia meets 71% of the demonstrated financial need for undergraduates. First-year students that attend Concordia full-time are awarded $22,976 a year in financial aid, on average.
