New Curriculum Plan Cuts Costs and Saves Time for Students

Urbana University announced a new three-year curriculum that will cut students’ college expenses by at least 25% and help students start their careers a year early.

Several academic programs, including two of the University’s most popular programs—communications and criminal justice—can now be completed in just three years. In addition, students who have already earned college credit in high school through dual enrollment or Post Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) may be able to graduate in less than three years.

According to Dave Orsmbee, vice president for enrollment at Urbana, enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year is still open and there’s time for students to qualify for grants and scholarships. “This year, the average financial aid award was over $24,000. Thanks to our competitive financial aid packages, Urbana is considered one of Ohio’s most affordable private colleges,” Ormsbee said.

Founded in 1850, Urbana University serves more than 1800 students from around the world from its 128 acre campus nestled in the quaint town of Urbana, Ohio. Known for innovative academic programs that feature personal attention from faculty, the University offers more than 30 undergraduate programs and several graduate degrees, delivering course work in class, online, or a combination of both. Blue Knights athletics includes 15 NCAA II sports along with intercollegiate bowling and shooting sports.
