I am starting the pre-health informal program. Do you estimate I will have trouble registering for Bio I & Gen. Chem I for Spring 2009 if I wait until the final registration period (Jan 5th)? I was classified as a non-resident, and this means I must pay out-of-state tuition in order to register. An advisor in admissions has told me I will be reclassified as a CA resident after I return on Dec. 22nd (I am currently out of state finishing my last semester of undergrad) when I renew my Driver's license (it was stolen, so I couldn't submit it with my initial residency questionnaire). Unfortunately, this means that I will either have to wait until the final priority registration period to register (Jan 5th -19th), or I will have to pay out-of-state tuition now in order to register before the first priority registration period ends (Dec. 19th) and hope to get reimbursed/refunded in January. The out-of-state tuition is more than double what I was prepared to pay, and even though I will get refunded, it is still a burden to gather that much money. But at the same time, I don't want to risk Bio I & Gen. Chem I possibly filling up. Even though I should resolve the situation by the beginning of the final priority registration period (Jan 5th), I am unfamiliar with how the SFSU system works since this is my first semester there. Any other informal pre-health students have a take on my situation?
