Want to graduate on time? Save money? Get better grades? Then you’re going to love 30. That’s the number of credits you need to take each year to graduate on time in 2 years! 30 is Flexible Students can split up credits however they want. And Reynolds makes it easy by offering classes in 15, 10, 12, 7, and 5-week sessions each spring, summer, and fall semester. So as long as your credits add up to 30 per year and are applicable towards your degree or certificate, you’re good! 30 is Brain Food Students who take 30 credits a year tend to get higher GPAs. So when it comes to getting better grades, taking 30 is sort of a no-brainer.

30 is a Cash Machine Extra years of college can cost you thousands, both in what you pay and what you lose from not having a job. So, taking 30 credits a year means spending less money and saving more. 30 is Your Ticket to Graduation Taking 30 credits a year increases your chances of reaching graduation. It’s all about momentum!

Talk with your advisor to get on track with 30 credits a year.
