Earn a Degree and Finish in Four

Time is Money

Undergraduate students wishing to graduate with a baccalaureate degree in four years will need to stay on track and successfully complete an average of 15 credits each semester or 30 credits each academic year.

Enrolling in 12 credits each semester or 24 credits each academic year will delay graduation for at least one year. The extra costs associated with a fifth year of college can be more than $10,000. Taking longer to graduate will also incur "opportunity costs" associated with delaying entry into a career and losing out on professional wages.

Tuition Lock Program

ISU offers a Tuition Lock Program for new first time college freshman who are Idaho residents. This program focuses on Finishing in Four years and can assist families in making college more affordable.
