If he's really close to graduating, and you can afford it, have you considered bribery? Like promising him $100 if he graduates?

Yeah, it might not be the best idea, and then he wouldn't be graduating for the right reasons, but at least he'd be graduating.

LOL! That's an ingenius idea, I think, but I don't think $100 would work for him. He would need a much bigger (and more expensive, in terms of dollars or commitment) *bribe* heh. I'm thinking of somehow bribing him with something related to a couple of his goals, such as looking for his first place to move into (an apartment, most likely a roommate situation, other). He's very independent-minded, if not yet fully capable.

Separately, I have never been able to get a clear picture from him how much time he has to go. I think at least 1-2 years, but I think he's been hiding academic problems from me, too.

Don't know.
