Possible Increase in Tuition Costs?
Some colleges are beginning to place an 'excess credit' surcharge to students that take over 135 credits for a bachelor’s degree. The reason this is happening, with I have experienced first hand is stated to be the fact that many freshman students do not enter into college with a degree in mind. So many students change majors 2 to 3 time’s through out their college experience. The other factor is people whom transfer from one institution to another are loosing credits and having to fulfill different requirements. Personally, I feel the education system should have one standard no matter the state or the facility therefore following the same requirements. Theses all lead to an increased amount of classes that students have to complete. If believe that if students had more guidance upon entering college they wouldn’t have this problem, I know that if I would have had some direction I would be a semester closer than I am now.
