The Cost of Extra Years in College

As you college shop, take the time to ask yourself, "can I finish in four years?" Many of my enthusiastic students embrace all that life has to offer. They are life-long learners excited about the future. However, when they decide to double major, study abroad, or change majors (or minor in another major); it's imperative to work with the college advisor to revisit your return on investment. If students are pursuing these opportunities for personal growth more than employability, that's a great thing, but with the rising cost of a college education, you have to acknowledge that lurking question: can I afford it?
