15 to Finish

What is 15 to Finish?

15 is the number of credits students need to graduate on time. Most students don’t realize this. We’re changing that!

Almost every 4-year degree requires 120 credits. For a 2-year degree, it’s 60 credits. Added up, you’ll need at least 15 credits per semester, or 30 a year, to graduate.

Students that mix face-to-face classes with online classes have an even higher chance of being successful.  So cool!  Take 3 face-to-face and 2 online classes and you have an even higher chance of graduating.

However you split it up, it just has to equal 30.

Examples
Fall Spring Summer On-Time
15 15 0 30
12 12 6 30
15 12 3 30
12 15 3 30

15 is a Cash Machine

Extra years of college can cost you thousands, both in what you pay and what you lose from not having a job. So, taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 a year) saves you money and lets you make more. Cha-ching!

15 is Brain Food

Students who take 15 credits a semester (or 30 a year) tend to get higher GPAs. So when it comes to getting better grades, taking 15 is sort of a no-brainer.
