The 15 to Finish campaign is designed to encourage students to take a full course load each semester to help them earn their degrees more quickly. The premise behind 15 to Finish is to promote the completion of 30 credits per year so that a typical bachelor's degree can be completed in 4 years.
15 to Finish is not just a program at the University of Nevada, Reno. The campaign has been adopted by all the schools in the Nevada System of Higher Education as degree completion is a benefit to the entire state. A short video has been created to help show a quick view of what the program is about.
When you complete more credits each semester, you can be on track to graduate. It's simple math: 12 credits per semester = 5 years for a typical bachelor's degree; 15 credits per semester = 4 years for a typical bachelor's degree
The less time you are in school, the less debt you accrue from tuition, fees, books, food, housing, etc.
The sooner you finish your degree, the sooner you can start into your career. In Nevada, a person with a bachelor's degree earns $18,000 more per year than a person with only a high school diploma.
In support of the 15 to Finish campaign, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships has a policy that requires 15 credits of enrollment for many aspects of student aid. To find out the details of this program, please visit the Financial Aid website.
