(HOUSTON) — The University of Houston is introducing a brand new program this fall to help students graduate in 4 years.
The new initiative is called UH in 4.
UH Dean of Student Success Teri Longacre says the goal is to save time and money “towards the ultimate goal of more timely college completion, which will get students out into the job market faster, get them into graduate school faster.”
Longacre says the sooner you enter the job market, the better.
“You are reducing your lost wages, lost salary getting into the job,” Longacre said. “You are reducing your housing costs and all the other costs associated with being in college.”
She says graduating in four years can also help you avoid excessive student loan debt.
If you enroll in the program, your tuition will remain the same for the entire four years you are earning your degree.
