Half of Six is Five
In the past, all the paperwork I'd reviewed stated that for summer sessions, six credits is considered full time. As a result, I assumed that if six is full time, then three would be half time-and I'd be eligible for my student loans.
Five credits is what I need for summer, and I somehow did not get the email last Wednesday that informed me I'd be dropped from my class if I didn't pony up the $1600 by Friday OR register for another two credits. Dropped is really a misnomer, because I'm still IN the class, I just won't be able to get the grade until I pay.
And I can't pay or add the class to get a loan disbursement until I pay $1600. That I don't have.
And to graduate in the fall, I have to be enrolled in at least one class-but I need to take two to get financial aid.
