Can you finish 72 credit hours in college in one year?

The answer would depend some on how the particular university assigns credit hours, but for any universities I'm aware of, 72 credit hours is unrealistic to finish in a single year. At my particular university, a full-time load is between 12 and 15 hours per semester, so even if you did 18 hours per term and 12 in the summer, you'd still only be at 48 hours and you'd be overwhelmed. So, probably not possible, definitely not a good idea...
