5 Precious time and money are lost when students don t graduate on schedule. Students are taking too much time Certificate Associate Bachelor s.8 years 2.2 years Should take year for full-time students 3. years 3.3 years Should take 2 years for full-time students 4.3 years 4.7 years Should take 4 years for full-time students and too many credits.
