Default Well that's a bummer...

So as some of you might have seen, I got into college. Well, basically in Alaska, the community college and University merged, so it wasn't exactly difficult to get in. But nevertheless, I'm still in. I have my ID card, my schedule, my classes, all of that. And then we go to pay the fees. Because I'm out of state technically, the total was $6,200. Woah. I mean, compared to Harvard or Yale, I'm sure its not that much, but this is for one semester. This is for three gen Ed classes. Also, because I was a late admission, my FAFSA will be ready...for the spring semester. I don't have any scholarships, grants, or loans so I'm SOL.
So basically, I think I'll have do un-enroll or dropout or whatever and once we move back to California, I'll go to the local community college for much cheaper, and I guess just take the classes I was supposed to take now.
I'm SO BUMMED. I was really excited. I finally felt like I was doing something that would actually benefit my future.
I guess I'll just be in Alaska until December, a state that I dislike, and just stay home? Maybe I'll get a job, but that might prove difficult considering I have no previous work experience and I don't really know what skills I have.
Sigh.

What are you doing in Alaska? What part? Can you take a few classes and transfer them?

Can you enroll in a California CC and just take online classes while you're in Alaska? You're going to be stuck inside most of the winter anyway.

ETA: See if that college participates in the Western Undergraduate Exchange program. I think CA and AK are both states that are members. Basically enroll in the program as an "exchange" student and get residential tuition rates.

This is what Denis, my boyfriend from Alaska did.

Take up winter activities and you won't be stuck inside all winter.

We're here housesitting. Anchorage!
I definitely can take the classes, it's the paying for them that is difficult, which is why I'm considering waiting until I can get back to CA and go to a literal community college.

Romy, I heard about that program today, but the lady that I talked to said it was too late to enroll. Also, I was told that it goes by majors and degree types. Currently, I'm undecided and going for an AA(to then go to a 4 year at a different school), whereas the WUE only covers Undecided BA.

I'm definitely going to go skiing and snowboarding and I just applied to two jobs. I just feel like I'm wasting valuable time, LOL. I know that college is at your own pace, but I've just been out of school for so long, UGH.

I'm currently trying to enroll in a California CC, but I have a feeling a lot of classes will be filled by now.
