I'm 48, and although it took me 30 YEARS after high school, I just graduated from college in January, with my degree in medical billing and coding. The actual course only took less than 2 years to complete.

FOREVER....

I went for a year, dropped out, got married, had two babies, went back for an AA&S, worked for a while, & finally decided to go back for a BS.  I will graduate in December, at 30.  I am looking at grad school, now.

I'll be a senior this next year, I'm doing the average four year degree. I'll be 21 when I graduate.

4 years. BUT that has nothing to do with you! It doesn't matter how long it takes you. On a job application, it never asks how long it took or whether you repeated a class, took 9 credits or 21 a semester, changed your major, went to night school, had a breakup, had a breakdown, etc. On a job application you write that you have a degree and the college you attended. If the employer checks, all they get told is that you graduated with what degree and what year.

So, ok, you could get an English degree in 4 years like I did or a nursing degree in X amount of years. Which does the average person think is worth more? Most people don't finish in 4 years and most adults don't have college degrees. Keep chugging away. You're doing great!

actual college time or since high school? I graduated high school 10 years ago and will have a bachelors degree in june 2014. Actual college time is/was from Nov 2011-June 2014. I don't regret waiting...I tried college before and just didn't have the interest, now I know what I want to do and have excelled at it.
