Project Objectives

The Credit Accumulation Initiative aims to promote students attempting and earning at least fifteen credit hours per semester. Students will be strongly encouraged to attempt and earn fifteen credit hours each semester, starting with their first to stay on track and finish on time. Advisors will work with students to establish fifteen-hour semesters—or, in some cases, an average of 15 hours per semesters–as the norm. Parents and students will be provided information about the financial implications of not taking fifteen hours each semester.
