Concordia Graduation Commitment

At Concordia, we believe in serving you as an individual, an approach reflected in the Concordia Graduation Commitment. We work with you to create an individualized graduation plan that best fits your needs now and in the future.

Our Commitment to You

Through the Concordia Graduation Commitment, Concordia promises that you will be ready to graduate on a timeline you help set. For most students, that’s four years.

More importantly, you will be ready for the world. Concordia provides you with opportunities to develop real-world skills to succeed in your vocations, to serve God and to make an impact on others. By remaining faithful to our strong academic standards as a Lutheran Christian university, Concordia makes sure you meet all of the requirements to graduate on time without sacrificing a high-quality education.

If you meet with your academic advisor, follow your graduation plan, go to class, study hard and complete all your program requirements, you will graduate on time. If you don’t, Concordia will cover the cost of additional courses you need, or we’ll provide acceptable course substitutions.

Graduating On Time

For most of Concordia’s programs, we consider graduation in four years to be “on time.” A few programs require more than four years, however. Your academic advisor will work with you to help you plan a course of study that best suits your needs. You may even be able to graduate in fewer than four years if you come to Concordia with college credit or if you are able to take courses during the summer.

Changing Your Program

Life happens. We know that some students who come to Concordia will discover new passions and, as a result, change their program of study. Some students add a double major or a minor or need to take fewer credit hours in a particular semester. When something comes up to alter your plan, Concordia will work with you to create a new on-time graduation plan that will best serve your needs.

Your plan is a partnership between you and Concordia. Your job is to bring your passion and goals, and our job is to help you find the program of study that helps you fulfill your passions and a plan of completion that gets you there on time.
