Whitworth Four-Year Graduation Guarantee

Graduating on time is one of the best ways to save on college expenses and to avoid delays in entering the workforce. Your timely graduation will reduce the total cost of your degree!

What is the true cost of graduation delays?

Cost of Graduation Delays

We are so confident that our strong faculty advising, dynamic scheduling and individual attention will enable you to graduate in four years at Whitworth that we guarantee it.  To be eligible for the Whitworth Four-Year Graduation Guarantee Program, students just need to…

  • be a first-time freshman starting in fall 2018;
  • sign up for the program by the end of their freshman year;
  • declare a major by the end of their second semester and stay with that major;
  • take full-time course loads each term (33 credits per year); and
  • make satisfactory academic progress.

If a student fulfills these requirements and isn’t able to graduate in four years, Whitworth will cover 100 percent of tuition for any additional course(s) needed to graduate. It’s that easy.

Most Whitworth students graduate on time – regardless of their participation in the four-year graduation-guarantee program. And for a variety of reasons – taking advantage of a fifth year of athletics eligibility, pursuing the 3-2 engineering program or completing an additional teaching certification – it may not make sense to participate in the program. But for students who want that added assurance that they will finish on time, the four-year graduation guarantee is available.
