  • I would say no, don't spread yourself too thin, get stressed out, and then end up doing badly in your classes.

  • I have a three year old and I do fine with a full course load in my campus classes, but let me warn you! My first online class was a NIGHTMARE! It was a low level course in the subject that is my major so it should have been cake. It was awful. I barely got an A. It was a summer class so that had a lot to do with it because of the extra time constraints. Trying to do all my homework and watch my child and do house work= very stressful! Good luck to you either way!

  • Your choice of course but I wouldn't... Last spring I was taking 6 classes, with one of them online, as well as a student law enforcement academy once a week... and my son was 2 1/2(easier then 9mths) I would never do that again..ugh i was so tired.

  • I would stick with your current course load and see how it goes. Add more classes next semester If you feel like you can handle it all after this semester. Next semester will be here before you know it. Good Luck with everything!!!

  • I wouldn't add another if you are also considering a part time job. In my experience on line classes can be very demanding and intense depending on the school you attend. The online classes I've taken were condensed into just a few weeks and required that I spend 5 to 6 hours a day online answering questions, responding to the other students responses, and completing the assignments.
