Finish In 4

Finish in 4

The University of North Alabama is dedicated to your academic success and because of this; we want you to finish in four years!

UNA’s new “Finish in Four” campaign will provides incentives for you to graduate in four years.

Everyone knows college is four years and we have a moral obligation to our students, parents and the community that we will graduate students in four years.  It’s good for you, for the economy and helps reduce the debt burden!

How is this done?  A central component of UNA’s “Finish in Four” is a new banded tuition plan by UNA.

What is banded tuition?  Instead of charging per credit hour, UNA will now offer one rate for 12-18 credit hours.

Take the guesswork out and plan with a purpose!

The average student takes five to six years to complete a four-year degree. At the University of North Alabama, you will be anything but average. You will be the leader of the pride.  With Finish in 4, we are leading the pride to help students graduate on time.

Here’s what’s next:

  • Register and enroll in 15-to-18 semester hours
  • Commit to staying on track
  • Connect with dedicated staff to guide you through this process
  • Seek Career Center and major planning assistance early and often


  • A clear, four-year degree plan of what courses to take. This plan will be your degree map to success.
  • Additional sections for many courses and added seats in many more.
  • A knowledgeable academic support specialist/faculty advisor to guide you, and help track and assess your progress
  • Career planning assistance and resources for on-campus and future employment
  • More time to transition into the next phase of your life; whether it be, advanced studies or gainful employment
  • More savings by keeping student loan debt to a minimum
