Is 13 credits for first semester in college okay?
Ideally, I was going to get 16 credits this semester to reach the minimum 15 credits per semester to graduate on time. However, I cannot afford the one class that just got added to my schedule (sociology) so I am considering to just go for 13 credits and hopefully get a part-time job (maybe campus job) and then go for 18 credits the next semester to catch up. My question is if this is a good idea?
My father already covered part of my tuition and my textbooks, but to ask him to pay for this one class makes me feel guilty and bad because it is quite expensive. I just don’t know if I should just resort to 13 credits so I could better prepare myself for next semester.
