Rachel’s Answer

The time period that most people spend in college is four years. However, the number of years you study is highly dependent upon your major. Many liberal arts degrees really only require two or three years if you entered with many AP or dual credit classes. On the other hand, there are engineering and accounting degrees on which most students spend 5 years.

Hi! The typical college path is 4 years, but that can vary from student to student. In order to graduate with a bachelor's degree from college, it will likely take 4 years. This depends on how many classes you decide to take each semester. The classes you take will give you credits, and credits are what you need to graduate college. For example, if you decide to take more classes you could possibly graduate in 3! One of my good friends finished in 3 years.

I ,personally, graduated from college in 4 years, and I took about 15 hours of classes a week! In college you have more freedom to schedule what classes you want to take and when you want to take them. You also have more free time than in high school!

This all depends on what job you want to have in the future. Many colleges offer three types of schooling -- a four year degree, a two year degree, or a work-based certificate.

The certificates usually require the least schooling, but only qualify you for entry level jobs that are more based on work-experience in that field. There is typically the least opportunity for advancement with these, but a lot of great jobs require these certificates.

Two-year degrees and four-year degrees are similar in that they have more schooling and also prepare you more for higher-paying jobs. Four-year degrees prepare the way for graduate education plans for the most advanced jobs.

That also depends on the degree you are seeking. The previous answers are totally accurate! But that is only for a Bachelor's degree. You can also pursue a 2 year associates degree.

Well, until you graduate... so if you have dual credits from high school, you might only need 2 years , but it's most typical for students to take 4-6 years to complete their coursework for an undergraduate degree.
