Still, it was a poor episode for a 4th year of a four year community college finale. Only two graduated?
It was mentioned in the season premiere, but Jeff's goal was to graduate in 3.5 years. This season only had 13 episodes, they might have originally thought they'd get the extension to a full order of 22+. In this episode, he again states he's graduating early. Due to the delayed airing of this season, this episode was probably meant to take place in January-ish.
