Step 8—Register for Courses
In June, your fall 2017 course registration date and time will be posted in your SDSU WebPortal. You will not be allowed to register for classes until you have paid your Basic Tuition and Fees. You are strongly encouraged to register for classes during your assigned course registration date and time.
The F-1 student visa requires you to enroll as a full-time student each semester. As an undergraduate student, you must enroll in a minimum of 12 units per semester to meet the F-1 visa requirements. However, we recommend you enroll in 15 units per semester to stay on track to complete your degree in four years. Courses in Extended Studies or Open University do not count toward full-time status.
The International Freshman Registration Guide, which will be available in July 2017, will help you plan, prepare, and register for classes.
