Four-year Graduation GuaranteeThe four-year guarantee for graduation relies on mutual commitment from the student to follow a list of practical guidelines while attending college, and from the university to ensure that required courses or acceptable alternatives are available.
Students must have appropriate high school preparation, pursue a course of study that is intended for four-year completion and follow these prudent practices:
- Select a major early in college and stay with that major.
- Work closely with academic advisors to develop a four-year curricular plan.
- Sign up early for classes during each semester’s pre-registration period.
- Register for and complete 15-18 credit hours per semester with acceptable grades.
- Work at a job fewer than 20 hours per week.
- When a required course is not available, notify the department chair in a timely fashion.
The Four-Year Graduation Guarantee was approved by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents in 2002. The program recognizes the importance of Nebraska undergraduate students being able to earn their bachelor's or first-professional degrees in timely fashion.
