WHAT IS THE FINISH-IN-FOUR GRADUATION GUARANTEE?

  • Designed to encourage and assist students in timely graduation in four years.
  • Freshmen students sign an agreement to participate.
  • Students are assigned an academic advisor who assists with academic planning, course registration, and career guidance.
  • Boise State University ensures course availability is not a limiting factor in graduating in four years.
  • No penalty for students withdrawing from the program.
  • Boise State University assumes tuition responsibility for required course(s) needed for degree completion if not available as per agreement.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Stay on track academically: The written four-year course plan outlines which classes to take and when to take them to graduate in four years.
  • Acceleration into job market or advanced education: The sooner the degree completed, the sooner the long-term career begins.
  • Saves money: Additional semesters of classes, especially when taking 12 credits or less add up.
  • Opportunities for Educational Enrichment: Pre-plan study abroad programs, internships/practica, service learning experiences and summer school enrollment.
  • Rewarding academic focus: Earning 30 credits a year (summers can be included) and maintaining good academic standing ensures a first-class intellectual experience.
