Register for 15 credit hours every semester
Did you know that..
- every semester you extend your enrollment, you are adding about $10,000 to the cost of your degree.
- if you withdraw from one 3 hour course each semester, you have to enroll for at least one more year at a cost of $20,000!
- in addition to the cost of your degree, you will lose wages of $44,259 per year (median income for 2012 college graduates per the National Center for Educational Statistics).
- if you complete two-thirds or less of the courses you attempt, it will take you two additional years to graduate and two years of lost wages. The price tag: $128,518!
So how do I avoid spending all this extra cash?
Take 15 credits every semester and graduate in 4 years. That's your formula for success. You'll reduce debt, accelerate your graduation and launch your career.
