Important FYI dates from the cashier's office
Here are the important dates to remember for Fall 2018 from the cashier's office.
Have you thought about adding one more class to your fall schedule to help save money, get better grades, and stay on track to graduate?
15 is the number of credits you need to take each semester to graduate on time!
Statistics show that students who earn 15 credits per semester are more likely to finish college on time and earn better grades.
Of course, you can take less and still receive scholarships and funding. But taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) accelerates your graduation, saves money overall, and increases your chances of achieving your personal and professional goals. Contact your Advisor today to schedule an appointment to discuss your options at 419.559.2345. Learn more at http://www.terra.edu/15tofinish.html.
