Earn your General Studies Associates Degree in as little as a year
if you have completed some Concurrent Enrollment credits or AP exams.
Don’t let expenses drag on for years. By earning 15 credits each semester, you will complete your degree in less time and for less money than students taking fewer credits per semester. Full-time tuition is charged for an 11-18 credit load, so you pay the same tuition for 15 credits as you would for 11. That means taking more credits is like getting college credit free! Also, WSU was nationally ranked as one of the top 20 low-cost colleges with graduates who earn high starting salaries (ACO, 2013). Eligible students may qualify for financial aid and/or scholarships. Visit weber.edu/financialaid for more information.
Finish your degree sooner!
Most students who have finished their developmental math & English coursework can finish in four semesters by completing 15 credits each semester. If you have previously completed college credits, you may be able to finish sooner. If you choose to Fast Track and still need to complete developmental coursework, or you opt to take fewer than 15 credits a semester, it will take you longer to earn your degree.
Expand your job opportunities!
Some employment positions require that you have an associate degree to be hired or to earn a promotion.
Earn more money!
The U.S. Department of Labor reports that on average, students with an associate’s degree earn approximately $7,000 more a year than those with only a high school diploma.
