Why is 15 to Finish right for me?

What are my Financial Aid requirements?

How do I get Started?

Take the RIGHT courses to graduate on time-the Academic Advising Office is here to help you decide on the classes you need to complete degree requirements.

How can I balance the course load?

Students who take more credits generally earn higher grades. Studies show that if you are already taking 12-14 credits, adding a class to may make your grades go UP.

I thought 12 credit hours is considered full time. What’s the difference between 12 and 15?

Taking 12 credit hours each semester means you will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in 5 years. Taking 15 credit hours per semester cuts that down to 4 years.
