Why Roane State

Finish Faster

Finish Faster

Chart: Nationally, a very small percentage of part-time students earn a 2-year degree within 4 years.

Taking a class here and there is risky business...


If a way can be found to attend full-time, the chance of completing a degree drastically increases.

Finish Faster

Roane State has several options to help you finish faster.

Which of these best describes the reason you’re a part-time student?
We just might have something for you.

I'm too busy with work and family
to take a full schedule of classes.

I am not sure I can afford to go full-time.

I am just not sure I can handle the workload
of taking so many classes.

OK, so to Finish Faster, how many credit hours should I take per semester?
