Let’s give credit where it’s due

The University of Colorado at Boulder is getting props for implementing a fast-track option for an undergraduate degree.

Students who pursue this option could graduate in three years, knocking off a year of tuition and living expenses. The savings could be substantial for those who are willing to work extra hard to earn the necessary credits in a shortened time frame.

But the idea is hardly new. Motivated college students have done this on their own for years — huddling with academic advisers to devise the shortest path to a degree

Colorado Mesa University seized on this time-honored tradition five years ago when it offered a three-year degree opportunity — to little or no fanfare.
