15 to Finish

15 to Finish is a City Colleges of Chicago initiative to help our students go from College to Career—faster. ​We’ve found that on average our students who take 15 credits per semester:  

  • Earn higher grade point averages
  • Complete their Associate's degree in two years and get accepted into 4-year institutions at a higher rate
  • Enter the workforce four months earlier to begin earning a salary in their chosen College to Careers field

​Ready to accelerate your success?

Review your education path and schedule an appointment with your academic advisor through GradesFirst​ to ensure you take the right classes and number of credits.
