Math is Kicking My Butt!

October 31st, 2011 at 12:38 am

So I took the COMPASS a couple months back, and only scored high enough in Math to get into Math 25. Math 25 is not a college course, so this course has to be paid for out-of-pocket. I have yet to find out how much it is, or if personal student loans would cover it, as I have been approved for a good amount of personal student loans via the FAFSA. The course is not worth any credits, obviously, so I need to call someone at Admissions tomorrow and figure this out. Why?

I have been working on practicing Algebra, and I am just not having a good time with it. Apparently, my state's Algebra is not as inclusive as the rest of the country's. That, or I just do not remember doing any of this. Ha!

You see, I never made it past week two of Geometry. I dropped out of high school, got a full time job, and was living the high life. Right... I went to a trade school a few months later, and ended up with a degree I could not use, ten months later.

It is time to fulfill my family's and my dreams. Both financially and otherwise!

P.S. I thought it was noteworthy to add that I got a perfect score on the English COMPASS. Smile

    Too bad grammar and what-not is not regarded as highly as Math...

    The same happened with my husband. He needed 2 classes of non-credit algebra and english. Yes, financial aid does cover those classes. Good luck.

    Hmm. The school Admissions office said they did not. They must not refer to Federal loans when they say Financial Aid, then. Cause Federal Student Loans cover all sorts of expenses, I am sure. I got one for a down payment on a previous car I had... Haha
