Default Accelerated University Degree

Hi,

I have completed my university (bachelor) degree in Canada but completed this 4-year program in 3-years (by taking many summer courses, as well as taking as many courses each semester as I could). Would this degree count as 3 or 4 years towards the "completed at least xx years of full-time or full-time equivalent studies"?

Thank you,

If that course was full time four years and you finished it in three then its ok, only matter is your credit hours + your transcript will be showing those.
Get a letter from you university about the course duration and you completed is such time.
Good Luck

Note that it's very important to get something documenting your "four year degree", Canadians who hold a "four year degree" can easily work for half the year (less a day) in the US while Canadians who don't, cannot. All sorts of jobs can involve working on and off in the US so that's a door to keep open.
