There is no one way to define a "good" college or university. 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 each of these factors to get a better sense of what C-SC offers and if it might be a good fit for you.

Job placement statistics for recent graduates can give you a sense of the return on investment a school offers. Within six months of graduating, 96% of graduates receive at least one full-time job offer.
An endowment is the total value of a school's investments, donations, and assets. Endowment is not necessarily an indicator of the quality of a school, but it can give you a sense of how much money a college can afford to invest in expanding programs, improving facilities, and support students. As of 2021, the total market value of the school endowment was $30 million. The average college endowment was $905 million in 2021. The school spends $5,124 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.
