15 to Finish Video
There is a new video out encouraging full-time college students in the University of Hawai`i System to take a minimum of 15 credits a semester so they can graduate on time.
15 to Finish was launched earlier this year and includes an aggressive advertising and public relations campaign, which was sparked by the fact that only about 27 percent of all UH students graduate. The campaign is targeted at every student in the UH system, but particularly incoming freshman and their parents. Research has found that students who take at least 15 credits a semester are more likely to do better in school and not only graduate, but graduate on time.
“If that’s not a good enough reason, another reason is that it will save you and your family an enormous amount of money if you are able to finish in four years instead of five years or six years,” said University of Hawai`i President M.R.C. Greenwood. “Once you have paid for 12 units at the University of Hawai`i, you can take as many units as you would like to take at our four-year campuses.“
