Every student is in a unique circumstance and has a different enrollment plan. Some students plan to enroll part-time or take a semester-long break (or longer) before graduation. Others may change his/her major multiple times. While students should pursue their educational goal in a way that best fits their circumstance, it is also important to be aware of how each of these decisions influences the number of years needed to obtain a degree, as taking extra time and credits to earn a degree could be costly.
The FKCC time-to-degree and cost tools provide you with the following information: 1) your expected time-to-degree given your current enrollment plan and background, 2) your estimated total cost of attendance and financial return on investment, and 3) how your cost and benefit will be altered by reducing your time to degree. Please note that the result is NOT what will happen to you, but a hypothetical scenario simulated by analyzing past data, intended to help you make informed decisions while in college. Please take a moment to play with these tools, and feel free to ask any questions you may have to our staff and faculty. We are here to support you in any way we can.
The Time to Degree Tool demonstrates how different factors impact the time ittakes for students to earn their associate’s degree.
The Student Cost Tool estimates the cost to degree for students depending on income level, age at entry, time to degree and other inputs. The cost includes all kinds of cost necessary to participate in FKCC, such as tuition, fees, textbooks, living cost, and others.
