On May 18 I received a game changing email. For the first time, I was provided a copy of the student handbook. Upon reading the handbook, I learned that my school will accept up to six transfer hours. Rewind: In the spring of 2008, in order to maintain my alternative teacher licensure, I enrolled in a master's program. Then I took two classes - for a total of six credit hours.
After reading the handbook, I sent emails to the necessary faculty and staff about the possibility of receiving credit for the courses I took in 2008. And I got the green light! As of July 1 I will need just one more class in order to graduate in December. Since my program offers weekend classes, there is no need for me to live in Nashville next fall.
Wednesday, I moved home. I'm thrilled. Maybe beyond thrilled. What a tremendous blessing!
