15 to Finish

Hagerstown Community College is committed to helping students complete their degree programs and graduate on time. The “15 to Finish” campaign helps students to understand that, when possible, taking 15 credits a semester will help them to graduate on time and save money. Did you know? It takes an average of 5 years for a part-time student to complete an Associate’s Degree. Students who take 15 or more credits every semester can finish in 2 years. Students who take 15 credits their first semester are 50% more likely to graduate than other students. Full-time students get better grades than part-time students. Students risk losing Federal financial aid if they don’t finish their programs in a timely manner. Associate degree graduates earn $500 more every month than high school graduates. Data on the benefit of taking 15 credits comes from the work of Complete College America. The “15 to Finish” logo is used with permission, and was designed by the University of Hawaii system.
