So I talked to the chair of my department today. He really helped me think this through and is pulling a lot of strings for me. Plan A is to grit through the rest of the semester and hope I come out with a C. I contacted the professor in charge of the lab to see if we can think of something I can do in order to make up for my poor performance in the beginning of the semester. He won’t be back on campus until November 22nd, but I still emailed him. Now I’m just waiting for his response.
Plan B is to finish that 1-credit lab in the winter session. I can still walk across the stage, I would just have to come back for the winter and get things cleared. My chair hooked me up with Residence Life. They said that I can work off the rent through labor, which I have no problems with. As long as I can graduate I’m good. My department even said that he will help me find the money to fund the cost of the class. He’s really going the extra mile for me.
Regardless, I have decided not to stress over this fact anymore. I just have to keep pushing till the end of the semester and hope that everything turn out for the best. When I do graduate and become successful, I will definitely donate to my department. Cause if not for them, I would not be that successful in the future. I might even come back and teach at this school :D.
