Attempting 6 Classes in One Semester?
So, my case is a little odd. I'm 16 years old. I am an dual enrollment student at the moment, but transferring over to early admit in about one month. Currently, I have two college classes completed, two I'm currently undergoing, and three AP classes completed (Human Geo, World History, English Lit), all of which I passed with a 4 or higher. My college website says that having a 4 or higher exempts you from ENC1101 and ENC1102, but I'm not sure if they give you 6 whole credits. Either way, if my calculations are correct, I'll be about 4 or 5 classes off of my AA when I graduate. I want to have it by the time I graduate, since I plan to go into the military when I graduate, and don't want to attempt military and college or do a long 4 year gap. My plan was to take 4 regular classes and then 2 online in each of the semesters, which puts me at 19 out of the 20 classes. If ENC1101 and ENC1102 both count as credits, that completes it for me. However, I'm not sure if that's a wise choice. I know college classes are a lot more hefty than high school classes were, and I never took a full 6 classes in high school, due to the way my school's schedule was set up. Fortunately, I already have college algebra out of the way, so that makes things a bit easier for me. Still, is it a good idea?7 replies
