We remind you that 15 credits a semester or 30 credits a year is the "real" full time.

At UA, an associate degree requires at least 60 credit hours and a bachelor's degree requires at least 120 credit hours. You need at least 30 credits per year to graduate on time. But, it's not enough just to take 15 credits per semester. They need to be credits that move you toward your degree. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore a number of different subjects.

We share proven techniques for getting the most out of your college experience.

We'll show you how planning ahead, talking to experts and exploring a variety of subjects can help you take control and get the most out of your college experience.
