Want to graduate on time? Save money? Get better grades? Then you’re going to love 15.

That’s the number of credits you need to take each semester to graduate on time. Sure, you can take less and still receive some scholarships and funding. But unless you take 15 credits a semester (or 30 a year), you’re looking at an extra year or more in order to graduate.

Registration for the spring semester is available through January 13, 2019.

Late registration will be held January 14-23, 2019. Spring classes start on January 14. 2019.

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 to graduate on time.

Students can split up 15 however they want. It just has to add up to 30 for the entire year.

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!

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.

Taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 a year) dramatically increases your chances of reaching graduation. And hey, isn’t that sort of what this is all about?
