A statewide campaign is urging Kentucky's students to complete 15-credit schedules each semester to finish college faster.

The "15 to Finish" campaign announced Wednesday is promoted as a way to save time and money by encouraging full course schedules. Supporters say it will get students into the workforce sooner.

Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson says the campaign will help supply Kentucky with a highly trained workforce.

The campaign is a project of Kentucky's colleges and universities and the Council on Postsecondary Education. The council's president, Bob King, says "time is money" when it comes to on-time graduation. He says by graduating on time, students pile up less debt by avoiding extra semesters.

The council says most full-time students take 12 credit hours, but can stay on track for on-time graduation by adding one more class per semester.
