So here's the short story: (and I'm new here Ahoy!) I was home schooled for nearly my entire life and my senior year my father passed away. It changed a lot of things in my family and in my personal life over the past couple of years. I'm sure some of you can imagine. In any case I have a GED now and I'm looking into what kind of accelerated options I have available. I'm looking at in state colleges as well as out of state like TESC and the rest of the Big Three. I plan to accelerate as far as I can through alternative methods of obtaining credits like those listed here. My main concern as of this moment in the planning stage of all of this is: Will FAFAS count credits that could be applied towards a degree but not for the one I am currently enrolled in? For example what if I take a bunch of CLEP and only half of them end up actually being applicable at the school & program I eventually select. Will FAFAS count all of these? Or only the ones towards my degree program? I'm really interested in taking a lot of the FEMA courses for my own personal enrichment and if I end up going to TESC then I can get them transcript formally into a credit bank. I'm just concerned because I can't really find any information on this and I don't want to jump the wagon and reduce potential aid. Newbie question to all of this I know but I could not locate a answer.
