Formula to Finish



  • Academic Success
    Full-time students who take 15 credit hours per semester consistently have a higher GPA than those who take fewer than 15.

  • Saving Money
    By graduating in four years (8 semesters), instead of six, you could save more than $58,000* in expenses.

  • Summers Off
    If you're taking 15 credit hours per semester, you won't need to take summer classes to stay on track. Instead, you can get a summer job, pursue internships, study abroad or go on vacation.

  • Getting a Head Start on Your Career
    The sooner you graduate, the sooner you can begin an advanced degree or start working full time in your career field.
