Strangely it depends on where you got that degree and what you are using it for. In the US you can take four or more years to complete a degree. It has been reported that it can be completed by testing out in as little as 4 months see http://www.thedegreepeople.com/services/3-year-degree/.
However if you are coming in from another country there is a good deal of controversy with many universities, educators and evaluators saying a bachelor’s degree is eqivalent to a bachelor’s degree. Certainly the UNESCO guidelines – which are legally binding – state that. However this is no guarantee that your non-US bachelor’s degree, even one that represents far more study hours than a US bachelor’s degree will be considered equivalent. While we as American’s seem to think we are the “gold standard” for world education looking at transcripts knows that many foreign degree holders have worked much harder than their conterparts in the US.
