ABOVE AVERAGE

Concorde Career College-Kansas City graduation rate is above the national average.

58% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Concorde Career College-Kansas City completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Concorde Career College-Kansas City

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

Graduated in "09" was offered employment at my externship site yet could not accept employment due to a Government freeze in the state of Ks. Concorde will tell you one thing and give you another, The hard work you put in should be accompanied by the team work from your counselor that is suppose to Assist in locatiing employment. My only complaint is that if your Counselors spends more time dating their boyfriends and leaving on lunches instead of balancing their roles..something is bound to fail. Mr. G should be in admissions and not in Counseling he simply did not have the attitude or drive for his position! They also leave you to figure eveything out ex. Refresher Courses should be made common knowledge not figured out...They were paid and so the student should be Fully informed on Everything!

My sister first attended Concorde for the Dental Assisting program, she was placed with an extern site and hired on before completion. After seeing and hearing the experience my sister had, I enrolled in the Medical Assisting program and had a great experience left feeling prepared and capable. I was hired on 2 weeks into my extern, and worked there till I came back and enrolled in the nursing program. After 18 months in the nursing program with some bumps in the road I feel well trained and ready for my boards. I graduated last week with several job offers, the only advice I can give anyone looking to go to Concorde is, that you should be ready to study, have no life and work hard. Your training to work in the healthcare industry, if you don't put 110% into it you won't get much out of either program I studied at Concorde.

Really poor communication, poor disclosures. If you're reading this and considering this school do some good research because they will only tell you half truths. I just spent 28k on a college that's not regionally accredited and non of the credits will transfer to another school in the area. I can't even get a call back to get my records. I just got pushed from one person to another but no one would return my call after reaching countless voicemails. I will never recommend this school to anyone. If I had done more research and just went to a community college I would have the same career, less debt and a chance of continuing my education.

Went for the dental assisting last year; actually dental hygiene, but was pushed into the dental assisting program.... Only to find out after I'm enrolld that they didn't have an instructor. We switched between other instructors and the person over the dental program (won't call any names) for about 3-4 months, then they hired an instructor, but had her stretched over other classes. We barely saw her and when we did it was bc she was in trouble over hear-say. This was the biggest waste of money and time. I didn't learn much bc of the inconsistency in instructors and what we were suppose to be doing. Oh, I forgot to mention we didn't get hands on with anything bc nothing was ever ordered in abundance, so being mid morning all the resources/hands-on tools were always gone/used up. I would never recommend this school to anyone. I wish I would have gone somewhere else.Singed, So disgusted.

I graduated from the Respiratory Therapy program at Concorde 12 years ago. I've had a great career! I've worked in different parts of the United States and have gotten hired at essentially every job I've ever applied for. I think when it comes to school as it does life....you get out what you put in.
