A private university in Lincoln is telling its students it will pay the remaining cost of completing their degrees if they don’t graduate in four years.
Nebraska Wesleyan University says the graduation commitment guarantee begins this fall. It says students who satisfy their requirements to graduate can do so in four years.
Those requirements allow students to complete coursework and participate in internships, campus leadership, service learning, research work and study abroad programs. The school says few programs are excluded from the guarantee.
The university’s current four-year graduation rate is 83 percent. The school has 1,600 full-time students.
