How does the 4-Year Graduation Guarantee affect your college costs?

Nearly two out of three state university graduates must enroll for additional semesters, even years, of study before they graduate, accumulating tuition and living expenses and delaying the earnings associated with full-time, professional employment. These students will pay substantially more for their college education than Bethel students will pay.
