ANCHORAGE, Alaska—The University of Alaska wants to make sure its students graduate on time. Officials plan to launch a campaign Monday informing students about the choices they need to make to earn a bachelor's degree within four years.
UA President Pat Gamble stressed each student is unique and the campaign isn't one-size-fits-all, but says students need to have the tools available to make the right choices to graduate.
• Taking 15 credit hours per semester, or 30 per year
• Registering early to get needed classes
• Asking to speak with an academic advisor and using DegreeWorks, an online tool available to all UA students
• Choosing a major by the third semester of school and sticking with it
• Keeping up course grades
