Completed 1 Year of College During High School for Free – In my experience, Salem Community College is fantastic: My high school had an agreement with the college which allowed us students to receive college level courses while still in high school and the college guaranteed that those credits would be accepted. We had the opportunity to graduate with up to 1/2 of the credits needed for an Associate degree, which I am currently completing. All of the credits received during high school were paid for by the school, so, in essence, we completed an entire year of college for free!

As an older student, I am not as well versed and 'networked' as the young kids out of high school, and I truly feel with college it's not what you know but who. I have been left to my own devices (3 semesters in) to decipher the most efficient way to get my degree. I have had questionable advice, and have learned that I am allowed to seek other advisory opinions. The State regulatory board has intervened because the prospective nursing students are taking way too many credits for the AS, and I for one, missed the Math part of the Accuplacer test by 5 points and it set me back a whole year. Now they are trying to rectify it, but it's too late for me, and I am becoming increasingly frustrated, but because none of my classes will transfer, I am stuck.
