School Whine

Despite already having a bachelors degree I have made the insane decision to return to school. WHY? Because apparently I'm a masochist. But that is a whine for another day. Anyway, I find myself constantly surrounded by 18 year old girls who keep asking me "Do you have babies? I LOVE babies!" or saying things like "OMG You're married? That's so cool!" and 18 year old boys who say things that I don't even pretend to understand at all but most of them seem to have something to do with either  Megan Fox.  This is all a bit annoying but still I put myself here so I can't complain too much. Until today....
I'm half way through my  course work when my dept. head informs me that they are going to begin using a new program for my degree....and that I will have to adhere to it. WTF? They cant just change things like that in the middle of my degree! What about grandfathering?!? Every other college on EARTH allows you to graduate with the program you started in. So again I say, WTF??? So basically now half the classes I have taken are useless and I have to cram 3 semesters worth of classes into two so I can still finish on time, OH and work a full time job. SO....Pissed...Off....

I went thru the same thing at my college when they switched from quarters to semesters. When my school counselor told me I cried in his face. Had to retake (read: RE-PAY FOR) about 4 classes. I'm not any smarter - just more broke.

University of Phoenix? They did it to me and as Anon at 12:38, had to repay. I gave up when they changed the program for a second time and wanted me to pay for the same class for THE THIRD TIME!!
Never. U of P is horrid

So unfair if they won't let you grandfather. Such an unnecessary financial and time burden. Maybe you can talk to the dean of the college that you're in? Or a counselor at the dean's office. They CAN make exceptions which doesn't mean they WILL. It might be worth a trip just to be sure.

btdt - it's worth your time to raise the issue because those young whipper snappers won't. Don't expect any grace from anyone about carrying a full load with kids and a FT job either. at the end of the day it's still just a job to 90% of them. Kudos to you for continuing on and Good Luck!
