3 years and out: Ohio colleges seek to graduate more students early

CINCINNATI— Ohio colleges and universities are working to clear the way so more students can save money and time by graduating in three years instead of the traditional four.

A state budget mandate requires Ohio institutions of higher learning to put together plans for offering three-year degrees in 10 percent of their programs by 2012 and in 60 percent by 2014.

Ohio higher education Chancellor Jim Petro tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that shortening the time frame allows families to spend less on college and helps schools raise their graduation rates.

Associate Provost Caroline Miller at the University of Cincinnati says finishing in three years is doable if students earn some college credits in high school and study through their summers.
