• Finish in Four

    As part of its commitment to increase the four-year graduation rate, in 2016 Sacramento State introduced a “Finish in Four” program for incoming freshman. Students commit to taking at least 30 units per year in return for discounted Summer Session tuition and other incentives. In the first year more than 2,300 committed to “Finish in Four.”
