Why is Think 30 right for me?

GRADUATION - Your chances of graduating will increase-the longer it takes to graduate, the more life gets in the way.

OPTIONS - Once you finish your studies, you can travel, start your career, or look into an advanced degree.

INCOME - The faster you graduate, the faster you can start your career and earn money.

How can I balance the course load?

Students who take more credits generally earn higher grades. Studies show that if you are already taking 12-14 credits, adding a class to may make your grades go UP.

I thought 12 credit hours is considered full time. What’s the difference between 12 and 15?

Taking 12 credit hours each semester means you will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in 5 years. Taking 15 credit hours per semester cuts that down to 4 years.
