Financial Literacy Month: Do the Math

 

Prospective students, are you worried about paying for college? October is Financial Literacy Month so we here at the VCU Office of Admissions want to help you navigate the daunting responsibility of paying for your higher education.

Do the Math 

Did you know that you could save up to $50,000 buy taking 15 credits a semester? This is based on a 120-credit hour program with standard tuition and fees, books/supplies, room, board, miscellaneous, and transportation expenses over a four-year period. By taking 15 credits a semester you could graduate in four years instead of six. This cuts back on standard tuition and fees, books/supplies, room, board, miscellaneous, transportation expenses and other living expenses that would accumulate in the extra years.
