Well, if you're in a sport, that's a completely different thing. You gotta win to pay for that scholarship, lol

They just call it Dual Enrollment down here. It's open to Juniors and Seniors but if you're home schooled then you can start when you're a Sophomore.

That's going to be saving dear ol' dad a chunk of change!!!

It was always possible to get a degree in 3 years. You'd just have to take summer classes (which I highly recommend to clear up some of the general course requirements). Summer classes are typically easier, at least from my personal experience. Or you could still take 4 years but lighten your load during the normal semesters and focus on your core classes by clearing out some of the generals in the summer.
If you are a good reader they are a lot easier in my opinion as well.
