How it works

Enrol

Kings staff will be on campus to support you throughout.

Start at Concordia College
Transfer

We’ll help develop your student profile to become a 'Rochester-ready' student

Kings expert University Advisors on campus will support you all the way. They make the transfer process straightforward.

Transfer after 2 years to The University of Rochester. Guaranteed. (Upon meeting requirements on the CLA.)

Graduate

Graduate from the University of Rochester after just 4 years: 2 years at Concordia and 2 years at Rochester. Please note some academic majors may take longer to complete due to the course structure and requirements.

Remember: Your graduation Diploma will be from the University of Rochester not from the campus where you started!
