OMG: I am so stressed out over my classes that I am probably going to fail one or two. I feel like dropping down to part time would solve so many problems, but I definitely cannot financially afford to drop any. Does the university offer any help to people like me?


  1. Dropping down to part time gives you time for a part time job! its a lot easier to focus on only a few classes, and a part time job gives you a break from your classes. I've been part time (2-3 classes per term) for a year now and I absolutely love it. It's so much less stressful. It's not that it gives you more time (since you're working 20 hours a week), its that it helps you better allocate your time, and gives your brain the breaks it needs. Plus usually it pays your rent/living expenses, depending on the job and how much you work!

    10/10 would recommend.

    1. what about the extra length of the degree?

  2. no, lmfao, they don't.

    i had to withdraw from the term. i have depression and anxiety and have to work part-time to afford school. i went to academic advisors, health services, counselling services, and access ability (formerly opd) and all they could do was get me exam accommodations (thanks for nothing) and tell me to withdraw from the term. so i did. two months from graduation!!!

    i don't know what to tell you, but no. i hope things work out for you, i really do, but honestly don't expect uw to make it any easier
