Typical Schedule=Typical Results
Let’s take a look at how the typical student thinks about the scheduling of his academic career. Most expect to attend for approximately four years. These years consist of attendance during two semesters: fall and spring, with breaks in the winter and the summer months. During the semesters, a student will take a course load of typically 12 to 18 credit hours. Eight semesters later they have attained enough credit to graduate and they will now pursue careers or further education.
Under such a typical arrangement students will pay the prominently published tuition rate of their school. Yet again, you don’t have to accept things at face value.
