Thanks again for the help.

Honestly, if you're not going to be FULLY supported by Red Hat, there's not much point in it over CentOS. The differences between CentOS 6.5 and RHEL 6.5 are trivial. If you have 6.5 going, stick with it. This article:
https://access.redhat.com/solutions/25037

...has information you'd be interested in. Since you're paying for RHEL access (Level 3 - self-support, with repository access), you can log in and view that article. You CAN 'migrate' from CentOS to RHEL fairly simply.

Thanks, TB0ne! i actually contacted RH and they contacted the person that ordered 6.0 for me(instead of 6.5) and had the subscription transferred to my account. soon i'll be able to download whatever version i want. they also said if i have problems i can contact them for assistance. thanks again!!
