Why Grad Rates Matter

The faster you graduate, the less it will cost.

The life of a college student is awesome. But it's also expensive. Every year you spend at college costs money.

If saving money is important, look for a college that fits you well and provides the support you need to finish your degree on-time.

It's okay to change majors, repeat a class to improve your grade, or take some extra classes that interest you. But it's going to cost you. Ask colleges what support they offer to help you plot a course to graduating on time.
