Is graduating on time only for students who rely on their parents?

It’s impossible to graduate in 4 years if you have to work full time to support yourself and/or if you have a child.

    No, that is not true at all. There are even people who hold down full-time jobs to pay ALL their school + living expenses, and still graduate in 4 years or LESS with GPA above 3.25, going to school full-time on top of their full-time job.

    Having a child - especially without a spouse - is a major obstacle, but that's not insurmountable either as there are single parents who fully provide for self & child, work full-time and go to school full-time, and deal with a baby/toddler. Major dumb move to do that, but you deal with the choices you make.

    You can definitely work part-time and manage to graduate on time. Full-time job, with children, on top of a course? You're trying to live life in the fast lane, so much that you've accidentally driven into the opposite side of the road and crashed head on into a semi. Even graduating at all is a feat in that situation. At the end of the day the most important thing is that you did graduate.

    There are students who work full times and attend college full time. It is doable.  That is pretty much all you for four years.  

    But you couldn’t do that and raise a child by yourself in four years
