Colleges Offering Graduation Guarantees

Posted: Updated:

A growing number of colleges are trying to entice students with a guarantee: finish in four years -- or the extra tuition is free.

The average college freshman takes more than five and a half years to graduate. But-most of these four-year guarantees come with conditions. Freshman may be required to declare and stick to a major all four years, take certain classes or forgo study abroad. Even with free tuition after the fourth year, students still have to pay dorm and living costs.

The bottom line: read the fine print. Every program is different, so make sure you understand what the college requires and what it offers in return.
