Students Who Take Longer to Graduate Could be Charged More

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Nevada college students on the five, six or seven year plan to graduation could soon be paying more than their speedier counterparts.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Nevada Board of Regents is considering higher fees for students who've accrued far more credits than they need to graduate.

The proposal up for consideration this week would charge 50 percent more per credit for students who reach 150 percent of their necessary credits.

Chancellor Dan Klaich says the policy still allows a cushion for students who change their majors or college plans.

Similar policies have been adopted in North Carolina, Utah, Wisconsin, Texas, Arizona and Virginia to encourage students to complete their degrees as quickly and efficiently as possible.
