Andrew Brisbin of Denton, Texas, entered North Central Texas College at 14 and transferred to the university a year later, the Austin American-Statesman reported. He completed the requirements for a bachelor's degree in finance in two years by attending summer school and taking a heavy course load.
He was to get his degree Sunday.
He said that being several years younger than his fellow students was not a major problem.
"Some of my professors don't really know how old I am," he said. "I fit in just fine."
William Way, the faculty adviser at the university's McComb School of Business, described Brisbin as "very mature."
Brisbin was home schooled, keeping to a rigorous schedule. His parents lived some of the time in Austin while he was at the university to help him -- and especially to provide transportation because he was too young for a driver's license.
He plans to go to graduate school but wants to get some work experience first.
