I'm not sure about loans. But I'm pretty sure I saw a post on these forums (I literally just saw it) that aid can't be used towards the waiver. I am not sure if that includes loans. Someone link that post if you find. I believe it is super recent. Also correct me if I'm wrong.
I mean, I’ve know people who have used student loans to get plastic surgery. You can loan all you want, but you’ve got to pay it back. Well, you don’t have to, but..
If worst comes to worst I’d make the suggestion to get a 0% interest line of credit over other options..
As far as I know aid can’t be used towards fees like this.
I really hope that this increase isn’t too steep. I’m almost there  Undecided

TESU COSC EC WGU would seem to be competitors in some way.

I believe one of the TESU goals with increasing resident waiver fees is similar to COSC in some way, get students to take more courses at TESU.

Thanks for the heads up!

TESU's last increase already made me very interested in going somewhere else.

It would’ve been awesome if TESU had this information on the SDC partnership page or anywhere on their website for the past few years..

You can use a federal student loan to get out of the RW fee by taking 16 resident credits. When you take that much, the RW fee is no longer required since you don't need to waive the minimum credit requirement. You cannot use the federal student loan to pay the RW fee.
May not finish second TESU degree, but I'm close.

Wow. Even loans. I knew you couldn't use grants and such the pay the waiver fee but didn't know that included loans as well.

Yikes, wow. That’s information TESU should’ve been posted on their SDC partnership or general tuition webpages since this partnership was created or since that policy came into effect. This is super disappointing & very much a surprise.

While that is a big disappointment I'm assuming a private student loan can still be used to pay the fees?
