    In the US students  getting their bachelor's degrees averaged 24.8 years old. Master's degree recipients were, on average, 28.7 years old. Those obtaining doctorate degrees are around 30.8 years old.

    As a general rule, most students graduate from high school when they are 18 years of age. If they proceed directly into college, and complete the curriculum requirements in the normal four year allotment of time, they will graduate from college, at the age of 22.

    Early twenties, but that's not written in stone.

    It could be anything from 20-21, to late 20's, depending on what that person took in college.

    The average age of undergraduates at my university is 26-27. Many people work for a few years and then return to school.

    22 or 23 and up. Some are younger because they start college at 15/16 take only 3 years to on an accelerated bachelors program or accelerated dual bachelors master's degree program and then earn another masters and a Ph.D. in a total of 8 or 9 years.

    I was 22 when I graduated from college the first time (B.A)., 27 (B.S.), 41 (B.S.) and 47(M.S.)
