Did you know that a majority of college and university students fail to graduate on time? offers a guide to graduating in four years, along with rankings of some of the best online and on-campus schools…

GEORGETOWN, KY, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2021 / -- Fact: most students at a “four-year college” don’t graduate in four years. According to a 2019 report from the National Center for Education Statistics, just 41% of all students graduate on schedule. And only 59% of undergrads finish in six years.

To help students complete their undergraduate studies and walk out of those hallowed halls, degree in-hand, four years after they start, provides this helpful guide:

How to Graduate in Four Years

A few of the tips covered in depth in the article:
• Starting college prep early
• Earning college credits in high school
• Choosing a major before college
• Finding the best college
• Making a four-year plan with a college counselor
• And much more

What difference does graduating in four years make? The longer it takes to complete college, the more it costs, with additional student loans piling up each year. Under that mounting debt, a student is much more likely to drop out because of financial hardship. So, graduating in four years amounts to more than just a tremendous savings. It also significantly improves a student’s likelihood of graduating at all.

“College is hard. With as many concerns as people are juggling today—along with pandemic pressures and mental health considerations—it’s no wonder many students take longer to complete their studies,” says Dr. Jed Macosko, academic director of and Wake Forest University professor of physics. “But proper preparation can mitigate obstacles as they arise, and I’m confident these tips can keep incoming students on pace to graduate in four years.”

In addition to the insights provided for a timely graduation, provides students with the most technologically advanced rankings of colleges and universities available today.
