Four-Year Graduation Guarantee
We are proud to provide each and every one of our students with a world-class educational experience that prepares them for their career and professional goals in four years.
Before your first day of classes even begin, Ripon students meet with assigned faculty advisors to begin planning a path to success that includes dedicated career and professional development support every year throughout your time at Ripon and access to the classes you need when you need them. In fact, we guarantee it.*
Assuming you do your part, remain in good academic standing and do not change majors late in your four years, Ripon College will forgive the tuition for your ninth semester if you are unable to complete the degree because your required courses are not available.
While this four-year graduation guarantee has been in place for more than a decade, we have never had a student who has needed to use it.
An incredible 98 percent of Ripon students are employed, in graduate school or student teaching within six months of graduation. What’s more, according to the Department of Education College Scorecard, Ripon graduates are the highest earners of all Wisconsin graduates 10 years post-graduation.
