Timely Graduation

Graduate in a timely manner and save thousands of dollars!

Graduating in a timely manner can save students thousands of dollars.  The State of Texas has implemented legislation that all state supported institutions must comply with.  Some of these programs have benefits for students who graduate in a timely manner, while others have consequences.  It is very important that students are aware of these programs and stay on their academic track.  Students who unnecessarily drop classes, change their major often, take classes unrelated to their major, and often repeat classes may be charged additional fees.  The following are programs that Tarleton State University has implemented due to this legislation.  Students should review this information carefully so they can plan to graduate in a reasonable time frame and save thousands of dollars.
