There are plenty of great reasons to plan to graduate in four years. But if you're a current junior or senior—who has earned 60 IU credit hours within the last two years or 90 IU credit hours within the last three years—this might be the best one yet: you’ll automatically qualify for a grant from IU.

It’s called the Finish in Four On-Time Completion Award and covers increases in tuition and mandatory fees during your junior and senior years. In other words, if you stay on track to graduate, you’ll never pay more than you did during your sophomore year.

Finish in Four was introduced as a two-year pilot program in the 2013–14 academic year. University leadership will assess the impact on four-year graduation rates during the 2015–16 academic year and determine its future accordingly.

The program is jointly administered by the Office of the University Bursar and University Student Services and Systems.
