Four-Year Degree Guarantees Are Growing for College Freshmen

Each incoming freshman at Randolph-Macon College this year was eligible to take part in a brief signing ceremony.

The new student, along with a parent and the college president, could sign a special agreement that is emerging at some colleges and universities: As long as the student keeps up with academic work and meets regularly with advisers, the college guarantees that earning a degree there will take no more than four years.

If it fails to hold up its end of the bargain — if required classes are not available, or if advisers give poor counsel — the college promises to cover the cost of additional tuition until the degree is completed.
