I am a Guardian Scholarship recipient.  I am an affiliate with TESU and Study.Com.

This means I should probably pay for my residency waiver soon?

I don't think you are. If you apply for Sept graduation in or before June and pay the residency waiver then, you should be fine on the discount. That gives you well into August to get the courses in. If you don't get all the classes in time for Sept graduation, they will simply roll you over to Dec. No sweat.

Does anyone know how long the residency waiver is good for?  Life?  One year?

One year or one degree whichever comes first. Supposedly you can do an Associate's and then a Bachelor's on a single waiver fee, but the year limit still applies. I would be cagey about pushing that limit very close because life happens. One illness or other event could cost you $1800 in the quest to save $700 (or more likely $500 as there will probably be a Study.com discount later, it just won't be as big).

Getting the capstone in early makes sense because once you have it, you have it, but not the residency waiver.

In quigongene's case, he can probably get done in Sept certainly no later than Dec, so he has plenty of cushion.

Only thing is, I'm hoping to start at WGU in June. Hence not bothering with the AS from TESU.

That doesn't sound worth $1800 anyway... Would the AS really do anything at WGU that the AAS plus whatever courses you have done/will do doesn't already?

It will knock out about 6 classes I'll likely breeze through anyway, so not really.
