Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If i felt a course was too hard, i would take it alone and still get 3-4 more classes done that semester. Financial aid set me back horribly Spring my first year... I was dropped from everything due to a delay in financial aid awards and not being prepared.
Your tuition is your responsibility until aid kicks in! With my lesson learned, I did payment plans and avidly searched for scholarships. Used tuition reimbursement with my job and waited on a refund (that always came in when the struggle was too real).

Advice for students:
Less than four years from beginning in Fall 2012, even with a full semester out due to an aid hiccup, I am set to graduate Summer 2016. My degree never seemed to be a reality while working a full time, part time and raising three active children until I switched to UMUC.
