ST. LOUIS – In an attempt to address college affordability, Missouri rolled out a new initiative Wednesday morning, flanked with the Legislature’s support.
The “15 to Finish” initiative encourages college students to take 15 credit hours each semester, increasing their odds of graduating on time and leaving college with less debt.
The Missouri Department of Higher Education is tag teaming with the national nonprofit group Complete College America to provide Missouri’s two- and four-year colleges with promotional materials and ideas to personalize the initiative for each campus.
