15 to Finish

  • 15 to finish

    Did you know in order to complete a bachelor’s degree in four years you must take at least 15 hours each semester?  According to the 15 to Finish campaign the longer you stay in college the less likely you are to graduate.  By getting a head start on your college career you can save money and time. 

    Numerous colleges/universities offer college classes to high school juniors and seniors for $25 per credit hour which equals a total of $75 per class.  However, each college/university admission requirements may differ.  Also, by completing a college course you are establishing a college transcript.  Upon completion of the college course you must request a transcript from that college’s registrar office.  If you would like to transfer college credit to another college, you must request your transcript to be sent from the registrar’s office. 

    Your high school counselor does not get a copy of your college transcript.  Furthermore, as a junior you are completing your college course outside of school hours.   As a senior, if eligible, your college course can be built into your high school schedule.  For more information see your grade level counselor.

     If you are interested in earning college credit, see below:computer
