see this is weird to me because I take 15 credit courses. full time is 12 credits. and I am allowed three quarters (we dont do semesters....semester usually means half a year right? 12 weeks is how long our quarter is)

When did all this change happen? Cause I've always gone the 4 terms and have never had to pay out of pocket... I got financial aid and even received a refund in the summer, aside from the spring & fall refunds.

I got financial aid last summer & this winter, and didn't have to take to anyone about it... Neither did any of my friends who go to CCs here.

No but that's why I have some put away to cover my summer math class.



My school only has fall, spring, and summer semesters.

depends where u are as well 5500 will only cover 2 terms taking 4 classes. If u take winter/summer here u cant take spring/fall ect. depends where u go as well., my community college is a state college now so the rates are a bit higher.

Did you go full time in spring in fall? It may be one of those things tht slowly takes effect across the country. I just know that Obama changed it to be that way. It was on the news too. But it also depends how much the school costs too

Yes, I did ft in spring & fall, then pt summer & winter. We're at about $50 a unit right now so maybe that's why, it's pretty cheap.
