Hi ladies, I need to vent. Sorry this post is kind of long.
So, I work for a university and am also getting my masters at the same time. One of the benefits of working here is that I get 7 credits a semester waived. I work full time so I bust my little butt really hard in my courses and dedicate all of my spare time to them. The university has a policy that if I get anything below a B in a course, I would have to pay the university back for those credits.
Fast forward to this last Spring semester. I was taking 3 classes at night and working like a ninja. I got a B+ on 2 classes, and a B- on the 3rd class. The university now wants to charge me for the 3 credits I received the B-. It amounts close to $2,000!!!! They will deduct this from my paycheck for 3 months
practically leaving me with nothing.
I'm trying to write to my professor to see if I can do anything extra to try to bring my grade up (there is still time for him to change my grade). He is not an unreasonable man, but I am afraid he is not going to be open to this suggestion. BOO having to work and go to school at the same time! (I'm not even going to touch the added stressof having to plan a wedding while doing all of this)
Sorry this is so long, but I really needed to vent! I am on the brink of tears at work right now. Thanks for letting me share.
