The key to beating rising tuition costs may lie in graduating from college in 3 years instead of the usual four. The trick is being able to successfully complete more classes than you normally do in one semester, be willing to enroll in summer courses, and essentially sacrificing much of your campus life to pull it off. A couple universities currently offer 3 year degree programs, and more state governments are beginning to offer students the same option. While the heavier course load will keep you busy, there are some pros. One, you look good on paper, and stand out to potential employers, possibly beating out many applicants for the same job. Two, there’s the money you’ll save from one less year of school, more if you consider the fact that many students take 5 years to graduate.
So, what say you, clutchettes. Would you consider cramming courses to save a whole year of tuition?
