Add it up!
* In state students who take 15 hours a semester will save an estimated $19,000 in tuition and fees (based on a 120-credit program with standard tuition and fees) by graduating on time. Tuition and fees are based on 12 credits per semester making any credits between 12 and 18 free credits. Adding the cost of books/supplies, room, board, miscellaneous and transportation that will be saved by graduating on time can greatly increase the total amount of savings.
That's a lot of extra cash that could be going toward other important things: a new car, a down payment on your first house or a kick start for your graduate school career.
In addition, graduating on time means you reduce the amount of student loan debt you'll have to repay. Plus, you'll make your parents happy. So add it up - and graduate on time.
