Benefits to Graduating in Four Years I dare you! •

The sooner you finish school, the sooner you are on your way to using what you have worked so hard to learn and achieve.

Every extra year in school equals an extra year of tuition and fees.

The sooner you graduate, the sooner you can enter into a career in your field of study.

True Cost of Your Degree

12 hours per semester versus 15 hours per semester The longer you take to complete your degree, the more it will cost you.

You should also consider that you are extending other costs related to your education, such as cost of living, transportation, books, supplies and other related expenses.

By taking 15 hours a semester you can finish your degree in four years. Limiting yourself to 12 or less hours a semester will take you five or more years to complete your degree. “Graduating within four years is extremely beneficial. Every extra year spent in college is a loss of salary that you could be earning. There is also the possibility of accruing more debt. In my opinion, it is important to get in and out as quickly and efficiently as possible. You never know what opportunities might pass you by.”

Note: Dollars are consistent; increase in tuition, room and board and earnings are not forecasted. Information obtained from the Office of Student Financial Aid and Office of Career Services.

loans and Scholarships

Flat-Rate Tuition

Students taking 15 or more semester credit hours pay a flat tuition rate. In other words, all hours taken over 15 SCH per semester are free.

The average loan for a UTB undergrad student is $5,981 per year, and $19,626 for graduates. The average UTB scholarship award is $819.54.

Tuition Discounting for Non-peak Hours

Campus Job Program

Students receive a 25 percent discount for taking classes at 7 a.m. and on weekends, and a 10 percent discount for classes from 1-4 p.m., which are historically non-peak hours.

When students work on campus, they are likely to take more hours per semester and graduate at an accelerated pace. Tuition revenue also funds the Student Employment Initiative (SEI), which offers students the opportunity to work on campus if they take 15 semester credit hours and maintain a 2.75 GPA.

Notes

Decide how you will organize your class notes. a) All-in-one versus separate folders or notebooks for each class b) Spiral notebooks versus loose leaf binders c) How to keep track of course assignments and due dates

Time Management

a) Weekly schedule • Time in transit • Time in class • Time running personal errands • Time studying • Time working • Time playing! b) Semester Schedule • Exam dates (plus when you need to study for those exams!) • Major projects due dates (and when you’ll do them) • Holidays, long weekends, spring break, etc.

Pay attention to ...

• Ways to combine tasks and/or errands • Especially heavy or light weeks • Tasks that require extra time and/or resources to complete • The extra things (need a new printer ribbon? Disks? Bluebooks?)
