Hadley’s Answer

I finished my degree in 5 years (1.5 of those years at a local community college). It does depend on what you want to study and put your efforts towards. One bit of advice I would like to share is if you do go to college, have a goal you want to reach and seek opportunities outside of taking classes that can provide additional experience and learning for that goal.

Fariba’s Answer

That's a great question and there is not a one size fits all answer. Much has to do with your own ambitions and time frame to get there. Many students go straight to college and if they do what is expected of them, can finish in 4 years, sometimes 3.5. For me, it took much longer. that's because i quit after 2 years - primarily due to my parents wanting me to study medicine when i had no desire at all. So, i just quit. That was dumb. I should have continued on my own and graduate with a degree in business - which I ended up doing about 10 years later. I wrapped it up in about 1.5 years (my credits carried over). The main thing to remember is that there is no rule that says you have to do it in x time. Work hard - but know what you are working towards so that the journey is enjoyable. Hope this helps!

Sarah’s Answer

For me, personally, I was able to complete my Bachelor of Arts degree in four years from a private university. However, most students take between 4-5 years to complete the degree. According to the National Student Clearinghouse, in 2016 "t<span style="color: rgb(79, 79, 79);">he average length of enrollment for bachelor’s degree earners from four-year public institutions, 5.2 academic years, is slightly longer than that of their peers from four-year private nonprofit institutions (4.8 academic years), but shorter than the 5.8 academic years for students who received a bachelor’s degree from four-year private for-profit institutions."</span>


<span style="color: rgb(79, 79, 79);">In other words, students tend to complete a baccalaureate degree is around 5 years on average. </span>

Dalton’s Answer

It took me 5-6 years to complete mine. But it depends if you’re a full time or not. If you got a job, do what you can and know that one day you’ll achieve that degree!

Sudarshan’s Answer

It took 4 years for me which was a UG course. But you can go for higher studies also but that's not mandatory, it all depends on your choice.

Doreen’s Answer

It took me exactly fours to finish my degree. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I took summer classes one year to finish on time. I discovered that I enjoyed three hour classes and continued my education. I complete my Masters degree three years after completing my Bachelor's.

jonathan’s Answer

Like others have stated there isn't a singular solution that fits everyone. I think its more important to make sure you study something you are going to enjoy doing or have a passion for. And you don't have to enter college with an answer  in mind. Don't be afraid to try a variety of classes and find what you like. Most degrees will fall in the 4-5 year range but make sure you find a major that suits you and not what anyone else thinks you should do because its your career and your degree when you are finished.
