Undergraduate programs

The math is clear: It takes "15 to Finish."

Many Lumberjacks have the impression an enrollment status of "full time" automatically puts them on track to graduate within four years, when in fact it commonly puts students on a five-year plan for a bachelor’s degree.

In order to graduate within four years, you must take at least 15 credits per semester or 30 credits per year.
