What steps do you have to take in high school in order to graduate from college in 3 years?
My 13-year-old son just started 8th grade a few weeks ago and even though he's still in middle school, we're already talking about his college plans. One of the things that would be really nice is if he could graduate in 3 years instead of 4. Obviously, in order for this to work, he would have to enter college with sophomore status which means he would have to have earned a year of college credit by the time he graduated from high school. He's probably going to graduate with about 9 or 10 AP classes under his belt, but many colleges don't accept AP credits. I know that taking classes at a local community college is also an option. If we take this route, how soon would he have to start at the community college and how many college classes should he take each semester? I am also aware that the universities in the UK are designed to take 3 years, so we'll also look at studying abroad.61 replies
