4-Year Graduation Guarantee
William Jewell College believes that graduation in four years should be an expectation for all students. You can spend up to six years completing the undergraduate degree requirements at many schools, thus adding to tuition costs.
Jewell’s Four-Year Graduation Guarantee* ensures timely completion of a great liberal arts education, positioning our students for transition into graduate school or career choices ahead of most peers.
*Students who follow academic advising guidelines are guaranteed to graduate four years (eight consecutive semesters) from the date of their original matriculation. If our failure to offer the courses required for your major or errors in academic advising cause you to need an additional course or courses in the fifth year, the College will pay the tuition plus any course fees for those required courses up to 16 credit hours within one year of the originally projected graduation date.
