A bargain!

I can’t wait for this bargain to hit my tuition bill next year. Let’s hope that Dr. Benson pulls in the dough as he’s reputed to be able to do, because more tuition hikes will just make my life that much harder. I mapped out my future today and I’m pleased to report that I appear to be down to about three more semesters, which is more than manageable, especially considering the changing of my major so late in my career.

    I’ve got Life Scholarship at Trident. I was looking at going through a program and getting my Associate’s in ’08 (since I just changed my major from programming to Cisco), but I decided today that I’m not doing the degree anymore. I’m just going to get a pile of certificates. Unix, CCNA and CCNP. Maybe a few others, too, not sure yet.

    This does relate to tuition fees though, because my first semester, full-time tuition was $1344/semester, and this year, it is 15-something. I know from experience that books for a decent full-time semester can meet or exceed $500, so combine that with tuition, and a community college costs $2,000 per semester. I’m trying to figure out how much longer the state seems to think people without financial aide will keep attending.

    Lottery money helps out a little, but it’s only $924, if my memory serves me correctly. So the leftover and books still exceeds a grand. Rediculous.
