Have anyone ever attended two colleges at once?

(votes: 0)


I apologize in advance for any grammical errors in advance because I'm typing on a cellphone.

Long story short. I suck at math. I only needed drug calc for lpn school. For my rn degree I need college level math. I took the placement test at two colleges. I scored the highest at ccbc which means I only need one developmental math course before college level. My goal is to complete math at ccbc and finish my other courses at hcc.
I will be taking math at ccbc summer and fall. I just found out today that I received a scholarship at hcc for this fall as well. I don't want to wast my scholarship money thus I was going to take some courses at hcc.
Is it possible to attend both colleges, even if I pay out of pocket at one of them?

I'm going to talk to my advisor about this tomorrow.
You can take a course at a different college while attending another but you cannot be matriculated at two colleges (enrolled in a degree program). However you would still need to make sure the school you are matriculated with will accept the credits.

Yes, I think most colleges allow that...The only issue I can think of is that the majority (exact # determined by the school) of credits need to be taken at the institution you'll get the degree from. One class shouldn't be a big deal, as long as you get approval for concurrent enrollment from your registrar. While you should get credit for the math class towards your degree, the grade you receive may or may not impact your GPA. (This could be a good thing, especially if you say you're not good at math!)

I have. I took classes at a community college while I was working on my degree from a university. It worked out better for my schedule so that is what I did.

I'm going to be attending two CC at the same time this fall. One is my home-college for my online classes which I will be getting a loan for, the other is closer to my home for my CNA classes that I will be paying cash for. I already finished my A.S. from my home college, so that's not an issue for me.

I did!! I was a full-time student (15 credit hours) at one school (2 hours away from where I lived) and paid for it all with federal stafford loans. I just had to drive to campus a few times during the semester for labs/exams. I was also an almost full-time student (10 credit hours) at a local school where I paid out of pocket. It was a killer, but I'm glad I got so much stuff knocked out!! I was listed as a pre-nursing student at both schools.

Thank you all for the insight! Please wish me luck in this.

Just BE SURE your degree-granting institution will accept the transfer credit, and get it in writing that they will - because if you take the class, and then your degree school doesn't accept it, you've wasted both your time and your money.

Hi! I graduated from a nursing program in the next county. I took some of my pre-reqs at my local community college. This was a cost savings, as I was charged out-of-county rates by the next county college. I had to get clearance from the school that granted my nursing degree, for each class I took at my 'home community college' PRIOR to taking the class... I recall that I signed up for a history class, then they said it would not transfer- I ended up having to take a completely different class for transferring- and transferring to a new class at the last minute. But, it was well worth the hassle, as it saved me a HUGE amount on my tuition, for those classes that I could transfer- fully half the costs.... Just be sure to get something in writting that they degree granting college will accept the transfer classes for your required classes. Best of Luck...

Don't you just hate that about placement tes? You do exceedingly well on evrything else and then on the math you miss it by 5 or 8. I am in almost the exact same situation as youe and I am enrolled in two colleges. I suck at math as well and I must take that one developmental math (MAT 070) as well. I hate it but we both must do it for the sake of our future lincensure. Hope evrything goes well with you! I'm typing on my blackberry too.

I've actually attended three college at once (being a military spouse) I took distance course and in-class course and it worked out well and all of my credits transferred.
