Kentucky Wesleyan to Offer Graduation Guarantees
Owensboro's Kentucky Wesleyan College says it will begin offering four-year graduation guarantees to incoming freshmen this fall. The school also plans to offer a three-year degree option.
KWC director of admissions Rashad Smith told the Messenger-Inquirer that the college will pay for up to one year of additional coursework for students who don't graduate within four years. He said the program is being launched to foster lasting, helpful relationships with students in the beginning of their college experience.
Vice-President for Student Academic Affairs Paula Dehn said the three-year program would save a student between $13,000 and $16,000, but the coursework is more intense.
