Yes, 12 credits is full time. But 15 credits will assure you graduate on time! Completing 15 credits per semester, or 30 credits per year, keeps you on pace to earn an Associate Degree in two years and a Bachelor’s Degree in four years.
Why is that important?
- Extra years of college can cost you thousands, both in what you pay and what you lose from not having a job.
- Students who take 15 credits a semester tend to get higher GPAs.
- Taking 15 credits a semester dramatically increases your chances of reaching graduation.
An academic advisor can help you explore the right class schedule. It’s never too early to have the graduation conversation!
