So I am getting my Reading Specialist Degree. My last class ends on Sunday. I will have a break until June 10th. Anyway to move on the salary scale you need 16 hours. I have 15.I could get my pay increase when I go back in August. I looked on Learners Edge and found a 1 credit course for $239 or something like that. So if I take that, the course work has to be done by August 15th. Should I do it? Otherwise I could wait until January for the pay increase? WWYD?

ETA: I would be making $3,000 more.

For an outlay of $239, you will see that $3000 sooner? I would go for it. You are so close.

Agree, do it now. You are in the habit of taking a class already & it will pay off.

Take the Class

It is one credit, and you are already used to taking classes. How much work can a one credit class entail?

$3,000 will come in handy! Take the class.

Oh my gosh, yes. That seems minimal when you get 3 grand more. It sounds like you're going to do it at some point, so why delay? I'd be all over that!

I would do it. In my experience, the required work for online courses is minimal. Usually a 3 page paper that demonstrates your understanding of the concept. If you wait til January, you’re out $15,000.

I would do it, assuming the grade will be in on time. It might be nice taking a course while school is out for the summer and you don't have all those school-year responsibilities.

I would definitely do that to get your raise sooner. I took learners edge classes last year and they are incredibly easy. My teammate and I completed 21 credit hours in about 2-3 months through them. I would bet a 1 credit class is no more than 3 to 5 hours of actual work, and even less if you're an efficient worker. I spent no more than 10 hours working on most of my 3 credit classes.

Do it! I would do it in a heartbeat! I love taking classes. Well, I love the learning, not the work. But then. Unfortunately, I need 28 credits to make $582 more. I'm not doing it. Sigh.
