The University at Buffalo is ready to strike a deal with its incoming Class of 2016 with a new program called Finish in 4.
While nearly all of UB’s undergraduate majors can be completed in four years, most students in the U.S. take longer, sometimes as long as six years, to receive their degrees. Finish in 4 will provide students with clear information and guidance on exactly what it takes to complete their degree within the traditional four-year timeframe.
UB students who sign the Finish in Four pledge will be given a roadmap of what courses to take and when, and what grades and other requirements must be met. UB will also provide regular academic, career and financial advisement to enable students to complete their degrees on time.
In turn, students must fulfill their requirements pertaining to academic advisement, course registration and grades.
Students who fulfill all obligations of their plan, but who are not able to graduate within four years, will be given the opportunity to complete the UB courses required for their degree free of any tuition and comprehensive fee charges.
Finish in 4 will be offered to freshmen at UB in the fall of 2012. All undergraduate majors are eligible, except double degrees and those that include a graduate or advanced professional component such as doctor of physical therapy, doctor of pharmacy, occupational therapy or other combined degrees.
