Did you know that...
- every semester a student extends their enrollment, they will be adding about $10,500 to the cost of their degree?
- if a student withdraws from one 3 hour course each semester, they will have to enroll for at least one more year at a cost of $21,000?
- in addition to the cost of the degree, the student will lose estimated wages of $48,707 per year (median income for 2014 college graduates per the National Association of Colleges and Employers)?
- if a student completes two-thirds or less of the courses attempted, it will take two additional years to graduate and two years of lost wages? The price tag: $139,414!
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.
