The Finish in Four On-Time Completion Award is being offered as a pilot program for two years starting with the 2013-2014 academic year.
Program eligibility will be based solely on overall credits to make it easier for the university to administer and for students to track their progress. The only other academic benchmark students are required to meet is a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.
A university-wide committee will be established to review requests for exceptions and appeals. More details on the makeup of that committee will be released in the near future.
The Finish in Four program is currently regarded as an experiment. We will assess its impact on four-year graduation rates during the 2015-2016 academic year and determine its future accordingly.
