Return on Investment Initiative Provides Financial Boost

Oswego GuaranteeGraduates who complete their degrees in four years receive a return on investment of $300 through a new provision of the Oswego Guarantee. President Deborah F. Stanley initiated the Oswego Guarantee ROI with December 2013 Commencement.

“We are enhancing the guarantee we introduced over a decade ago to remind students of the value and financial benefits of earning their baccalaureate degree in four years or less,” Stanley said.

Kristi Eck, the president’s interim chief of staff, said the new Oswego Graduation ROI could provide graduates with funds for job-hunting expenses or graduate school applications and help SUNY Oswego graduates transition from college into the next phase of their adult lives.

The Graduation ROI supplements the original Oswego Guarantee commitments:

Necessary classes will be available to complete a baccalaureate degree in four consecutive years or the college will enroll the student in the course or courses tuition-free;

The college will continue to make small classes available to encourage discussion and interaction between students and faculty; and Oswego pledges to hold each student’s cost for room and meal plans constant for four consecutive years.
