Only students who decide on a program upon first enrollment, who follow the catalog plan exactly, who enroll in at least 15 credits per term, who do not need to complete prerequisite courses, and who enroll prepared academically for college-level learning are likely to complete "on time." Lane celebrates the persistence of all graduates, regardless of how long they take to earn certificates and degrees.)
