Think graduating in four years is typical? Think again…

The majority of students nationwide take 5 or 6 years to complete a 4 year degree!

The University at Buffalo is committed to helping all students graduate in four years and to do this we offer Finish in 4: UB’s Commitment to Your Graduation!

What is Finish in 4?...

  • A pledge by the student to stay committed to the goal of graduating in four years and to follow the actions and behaviors correlated to achieving this goal.
  • A focused initiative to provide students with the resources and guidance needed to complete their four year degree in four years.
  • A roadmap to lifelong success for students.
  • UB’s commitment that if a student takes the Pledge and fulfills all of the obligations, but still can’t graduate in four years, UB will provide him/her the opportunity to complete the needed courses free of any tuition and comprehensive fee charges.

Together we can help UB lead the national charge to improve graduation rates, reduce the burden of debt and move gradautes efficiently into the workforce or graduate study programs.
