Frugal College

April 22nd, 2008 at 04:53 pm

Didn't think there was such a thing.

Earlier I wrote that summer classes will cost me $1034 + books. Well, that is no longer true.

My friend is taking core humanities (require classes for our university that are like English) at the local community college and was telling me how easy the class is. Since English is not my forte, I decided to take the CH at the community college as well.

Besides an easy GPA booster, it also costs half as much ($185 compared to $380) and I will not need as many books (at the CC you need 2. At Uni you need 7). And it will completely transfer.

I had to move my schedule around for summer and fall so I'll be taking two classes over the summer instead of 3. I will be taking the next level of CH (there are three total) at the CC but I still had to be enrolled in 12 or more credits at my Uni in the fall. So one of the classes I was planning on taking in the summer I will take in the fall to keep me as a full-time student.

This also makes my cost for the fall semester much cheaper and the course load is going to be easier. I'll probably be able to work during the semester.

    I am really impressed with your stats. $9500 in savings is not chump change and you are already contributing to a IRA. Way to go girl! You're my heroe. Smile

    I did all my lower division unit at community college, and it was so much cheaper than universities. Units are units. They count no matter where they come from.

    Good for you! You may also find that the teaching is better at CC in this type of class.

    Looks like you've saved a bundle and come out ahead (academically)... Congratulations!
