A 19-year-old Michigan teenager is graduating from the University of Michigan after finishing her undergraduate degree in one year.

Nicole Matisse of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., began taking courses at community college when she was a junior in high school, the Detroit News said Wednesday.

She had completed 44 credits by the time she applied to the University of Michigan and was almost halfway through her sophomore year before she reached campus.

By August, she will have finished her undergraduate career in less than a calendar year. She has maintained a 4.0 grade-point average, the newspaper said.

"I've gotten my share of people who say they wouldn't have done it my way," Matisse said. "But I've come to realize there's something positive to be said about being different."
