Sarah James, BBA '20

I enrolled in Concordia University’s Adult Degree Program in 2015 when I was 35 years old. Over the course of the next five years, I was able to take evening, daytime, and online courses to complete my degree. Over the course of those same five years, I worked full time, got married, and had a baby. Were it not for the flexibility to take the type of class that most suited my needs at the time, I may not have been able to finish. As it was, not only did I finish, but I managed to maintain a 4.0 GPA, too!

You can get a degree anywhere. At Concordia, I got that and so much more. Students are not just numbers here. The instructors were top notch across the board. In addition to being subject experts, they were invested in my learning and my success. I’m so grateful for the time I spent at Concordia. As a non-traditional student, especially, the support I felt was invaluable.
