A committee studying enrollment strategy at the University of Texas at Austin has recommended that undergraduates be required to finish their degrees in 10 semesters, the Associated Press reported. The current average length of time is 8.5 semesters. Students enrolled in programs for which the expected completion time is longer than 8 semesters would be exempt, and appeals could be filed for special circumstances. The rationale for the proposal is that the university can't meet demand for space if too many students take too long to graduate.
