The reason I was able to complete the program in 1.5 years was because I already had a previous college degree, so I was able to transfer many of my credits over for the general education courses (calculus, english, etc).

Also, the University I was enrolled in allowed me test out of classes that I already knew. For example, the I was able to test out of Intro to Scripting and other intro courses. So that's why I was able to complete faster than 4 years.
