Registering for classes

I am registering for classes tomorrow for college. I can’t believe it. I am finally getting it all together. I will start in August. I have almost $5,000 in financial aid. My classes should cost only around $1,500 for my first semester and I am guessing around $500 in books. I hope less but I’m not sure since I won’t know what classes until tomorrow. And I won’t know what books I need until about two weeks before class. The amazing thing about my financial aid is I don’t have to pay any of it back. I got all grants. Amazing!! 🙂

I hope to get back almost $3,000. Which will be nice, since I plan on dropping my hours at work to make sure I have enough time for school. I will get that for two semesters until I fill my financial aid out again during tax time. I am guess I will keep getting grants since I am a low income house hold.

I am going to school to do what I love Web development. I am really surprised when I did the COMPASS test, which is a placement test I did as well as I did. I am not a test taker. On reading, I got a 93 out of a 100. Which is equal to 20+ on the ACT, a 70 in English, which is equal to 18+ on the ACT test and my Math skills was in the lower half I can’t remember it. I have to take a pre-college math class, which is okay with me. Just because I haven’t been in school in 6 years and the idea of going into classes with some idea of what I am doing is better then not knowing anything when I get there. So, the pre-class is okay with me. lol

I am so scared and happy at the same time. I am looking so forward in starting this new chapter of my life.

  1. I’m so excited for you 😀 pre-college math classes are a great way to get into higher math classes after being out of school anyhow–the first day they usually go over all the really basic things to make sure everyones still on the same page and it’s a good way to get yourself back into the school mind set.

    When do your classes start?

    I start August 17th. They said I should be able to buy all books and stuff about 10 days before classes start. Then about 10 days after classes start I get my money back I didn’t spend on books and classes. lol 🙂
