First year of college done...

The last grades were posted yesterday, and we ordered transcripts today for the car insurance discount and the credits that have to be transferred. He did extremely well and was also inducted into the honor society.

 

In another thread I described our FAFSA woes, but we finally got that worked out and are waiting to hear on the merit aid.

 

We still need to go in person in a few weeks to make sure the AP Latin credits are applied and do the transferred credit paperwork. I wish they had this online, but they want you to come with in person for some reason. I'd send him alone, but I want to understand this process.

 

Also got him registered for fall. Thankfully his wonderful math professor was available. This is the third semester with her. Then he has two online classes (one at another school), and three other in-person classes. He'll be there nearly all day on Fridays for biology class in the morning and then lab in the afternoon. We may have to switch that around once we get the AP, transferred, and merit aid requirements worked out. It depends on what he's given credit for and if there are restrictions on the scholarship.

 

His work actually doesn't need him now until the end of July, so we're going to travel some and put him on some household projects.

I felt pretty triumphant when they got into college, but that was nothing compared to the relief I felt at the end of the first year. At that point, it felt like *I* knew I had not failed homeschooling them. They might or might not make it through college but that was their affair. I stopped worrying about whether I had prepared them adequately. Or mostly stopped, anyway lol.

 

Congratulations to both of you!

Dd finished last week. She had one B in A&P and the rest were A's. She retains her full tuition scholarship on a semester-by-semester basis from here on out. 

 

She's going back to take A&P 2 in a summer session next month. When she goes back in the fall, she'll have only one science pre-requisite left for the nursing program and hopes to have a relatively easy year before entering the full program her junior year.

Yes, that's how I feel. He knows how to study, how to approach professors. He even survived two group projects. We did GOOD!
