    College Reg!!!!!


    recently I enrolled in 3 college courses. Night time.

    ... I registered. and now I just found out the tuition is $600... not including texts...

    They never mentioned anything about money when registering me... I told them I am a highschool student... what do I do lol, my mom's gonna be shocked if she see a letter urging $600.

    $600 is a value

    I've registered 3 classes and It's $5,000 each not including books.

    As long as you study hard and get good grades, and not worry too much about girls, you should be just fine.

    Be sure you un-register in time!! My roommate had lots of problems unregistering and had to pay the class without having attended a single lecture..

    Prudens, dear, you need to TALK to your mom NOW! Don't wait until she gets a letter. First, choose the one class out of the three that you want to take the most. My guess is that she may not mind paying for one of those classes - but three would be a bit much. That way, when she hits the roof when you tell her about the $600, you can soften the blow by offering to withdraw from two of them. :wink:

    what happens if I don't pay those tuition? put me in jail?

    I'm already in process of looking for jobs on campus, and applying for that FAFSA thing...

    Hey, my brother is trying to get funding for a second degree... he wants to do a vetinary degree and he has been quoted £15,000 per year, for 5 years. That doesnt include texts or accomodation, just the tuition fees. All because he will be a post-grad.

    EDIT: oh yeah, and THAT is subject to the rise in tuition fees, so the second year it could cost £15,500 etc.
