How much does 1 course worth 0.5 credits (Statistics I) cost at UTSG? Is there any financial assistance i can get (as OSAP will only cover it if i take 1.5 credits) Also, i may have to work full-time during the summer (probably shift work). DO you think taking an F course would be doable or would you advise against it?
the Summer 2015 timetable isn’t out yet, but you can take a look at what 0.5 FCEs cost in Summer 2013 here (it was just over $700). it likely won’t deviate too much from that number this summer.
as for financial assistance: if you were a part-time student this Fall/Winter, you are eligible for part-time OSAP and the Noah Meltz Program of Financial Assistance, so you should go ahead and apply for that. if you weren’t part-time in Fall/Winter, then unfortunately you’re not eligible for either of these.
what i would recommend is that you talk to your college registrar’s office about bursaries that may be available through the college.
finally, i think taking 0.5 credits in the summer and a full-time job is totally doable academically. it won’t be easy, as summer courses do move along pretty quickly, but it’s not impossible. if you dedicate yourself and work hard, it can be done. YOU CAN DO IT!!!
