Today’s students are taking longer to get their college degrees, but selecting the right college major — and doing so early — can help reduce the time it takes to earn a degree.
Complete College America reports
that more than 60 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients take more than four years to complete their degree, and nearly 30 percent take six years.
That extra time in school leads to additional college costs — and, potentially, more student loan debt. Help your students on the path to timely college completion with minimum debt by sharing strategies for selecting the right major.
