15 to Finish graphic.

If your goal is to graduate in 2 years ​ ​with an associates​​ or 4 years with a bachelor degree, following the 15 to Finish initiative may be an excellent option for you. The 15 to Finish initiative encourages students to take 15 credits each semester or complete 30 credits in an academic year. 30 credits per year can also be accomplished by taking advantage of​ our winter semester, summer semester or get a jump start on your college education by taking college courses in high school.

For example, a student could take 12 credits in the fall semester, 12 credits in the spring semester, and 6 credits in the summer. Taking classes during summer and winter sessions is also a great way to get on track with a degree if you started in developmental math and English courses.

​Why should I do this?

Research shows...

You increase your chances of graduating
The more credits you complete each semester, the fewer opportunities you give life to sidetrack your studies.

You increase your options
The sooner you finish your studies, the faster you can get started with your career and life outside of school. Once you have your bachelor’s degree, you can travel, volunteer, or even get a head start on an advanced degree.

You increase your income
In Nevada, a person with a bachelor’s degree earns $18,000 more per year than a person with only a high school diploma. The faster you earn your degree, the sooner you can start your career and start earning more.
