Starting 2016 fall quarter, Baker College will provide financial awards per term to students enrolled in 14 or more credit hours for any undergraduate degree or certificate program — on ground or online.
“Students seek a college education to gain the knowledge and skills that will allow them to pursue the career of their dreams,” said Kelly Smith, Baker College of Cadillac president. “Baker College's new tuition savings program can help students reduce their education costs as well as the time they are in school, thus making it possible to more quickly pursue their career goals.”
For the 2016-17 academic year, Baker
College will award the following amounts based on registered hours:
14 credits = $250 per quarter ($750 savings for
15 credits = $375 per quarter ($1,125 savings
for three quarters)
16-plus credits = $500 per quarter ($1,500
savings for three quarters)
The academic credit hours must apply
to the pursued degree or certificate.
A typical bachelor’s degree takes four years to complete, however, students may not realize this schedule requires taking 16 credits most quarters during those four years. As a result, even students who are considered full time at 12 credits per quarter may take longer than four years to graduate, which postpones their careers.
Smith said this opportunity is ideal
for students who are driven and can manage the academic workload.
Courses for 2016 fall quarter begin
Monday, Sept. 26, at on-ground campuses and Thursday, Sept. 22, online.
