It's official!

I have been accepted into the PSU World Campus for the IST BS degree!!! I've not gotten the official letter (because I was only accepted 2 days ago =) but they were able to tell me over the phone. I've also filled out the FAFSA for both the 09-10 summer session as well as for the upcoming 10-11 fall/spring semesters. That was more difficult than I thought. Nowhere does it actually address untaxed Social Security Disability. I ended up talking with a very nice woman at PSU's finical aid office to solve my dilemma.

Now I'm nervous about getting enough financial aid to cover all of it. *bites nails*

I was able to talk with my academic advisor and get some other questions answered. It's roughly $6200/full time semester, plus books and a $230 technology fee. I'll be taking 12 credits (4 classes, full time status) starting this summer. I hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew! 1996 was the last year I took classes and even that year wasn't full time. Speaking of 'it's been a very long time,' I'm worried about my math skills since I took Math 23 (I think??) in 1992 (then took 'the history of math, math 35 for my other math credit. silly me) SO... I need math 110. I'm just not feeling the love, you know? Thankfully the Math Dept actually has online remedial math for a small fee (as opposed to taking math credits all over again). It's at www.math.psu.edu/ug/courses/mathcourseprep. Yay!!

Well, that's about it for now. Hugs and love
