TESU Residency Waiver vs Taking Courses
#11
(10-16-2020, 04:49 PM)ashkir Wrote: Is taking more then 9 credits a term feasible when working full time? I am considering it so I can use Pell Grant. I had a transplant so my income is so low I qualify for a full grant.

I also qualify for the full pell (2020/2021) & 6 credits per term (2 classes in 12 weeks, typically) -IS- considered full time at TESU - at least from my research & calls I’ve made. Totally doable! 

I considered taking 1 class + the cornerstone in the first to qualify for the full 1/3 Pell, then 2 classes + capstone in #2 & pay the difference for flat rate to graduate in September, but that 1/3 deduction when taking less than 3 terms kills me.  My biggest concern is that I’ll be straddling the 20/21 Award year, as it switches in July. That leaves my plan up in the air based on my start time & stresses me out. We’ll see, I’m 95% set on TESU, but nothing is set in stone for me yet.
