The cost of college. It seems to be on everyone’s mind. From the parents of school-aged children, to soon-to-be high school graduates, and to state and federal policymakers. With the cost of college outpacing inflation and household income, students, and their parents, are seeking high-quality alternatives that won’t leave students with a lifetime of student loan debt. They deserve a degree with distinction, and a unique, focused experience.
Bachelor’s Degree in the US
At many US colleges and universities, four and sometimes five years has become the norm to graduate, costing not only tuition dollars and room & board, but also thousands in lost wages, benefits, and potential retirement savings. Accelerating the path to a degree at traditional colleges takes not only a significant amount of self-discipline, but also summer courses, heavy course loads in the fall and spring, and often permission from college officials. Even worse, the schedule required often means no meaningful school breaks, high stress, and missed opportunities for summer internships and experiential education opportunities (such as summer research projects, career-related work). There has to be a better way.

At NewU University, we’ve unlocked the opportunity for a 3-year program of study that keeps summers available, lowers the overall cost of higher education, and still provides for a winter break between fall & spring semesters. NewU operates on 18 week semesters, allowing students the flexibility to work or intern over the summer, retain a 2-3 week winter break, and graduate in three years without overloading their schedules.
