Why taking 15 Credits is Beneficial

Extra years of college can cost you thousands, both in what you pay and what you lose from not having a job. So, taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) saves you money and lets you make more.

Students who take 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) tend to get higher GPAs. So when it comes to getting better grades, taking 15 is sort of a no-brainer.

Taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) dramatically increases your chances of reaching graduation. And hey, isn't that sort of what this is all about?
