Courses for transfer student

<p>Hi people.</p>

<p>I will be a transfer student the next semester. However, most of the courses that I want to take have either been already filled or close to filling. And the spring transfer students cannot register until orientation. </p>

<p>So do you guys know the chances of getting into these classes:
311D-Introductory Biology II
Chem 310N- organic chemistry II
organic chemistry lab that goes with chem 310N
Thanks</p>

<p>Some classes will open up on Jan 7, when some students forget to pay for spring classes on time. Maybe that will help. When you are a few weeks into spring semester, it would be great if you would post what happened, if you were able to get into the classes you needed.</p>

<p>Thanks midwestmom, the problem is I cannot register until I attend my orientation on January 11 because I am a transfer student. But thank you for your post anyway.</p>

<p>hey I'm in the same situation you are. Besides people dropping due to nonpayment, I also heard that your advisor can push you into some classes if they think they really need to.</p>

<p>hey, sorry to hijack your thread but to all who transferred to UT, can you please post your prev. college gpa, how many hours you took and what college you transfered too? thanksss</p>

<p>Wait payment is due on the 7th?! I thought we pay during orientation??</p>

<p>leeznon payment is due for regular students then, i believe, but not us.</p>

<p>azim - search this board, there is a transfer student thread for spring '10 that has all the info you're looking for</p>

<p>I hope you're right!</p>

<p>Tuition is due Jan 7th if you registered by Nov 6th.</p>

<p>Ok, so do new students pay on orientation?</p>

<p>If you register on Jan 13th, tuition is due on Jan 15th.</p>

<p>My tuition bill says that payment is due by 02/03/2010 by 5PM.</p>

<p>can anyone confirm what sabboke wrote?</p>

<p>My stats: 3.49 gpa biochemistry major</p>

<p>took about 60 credit hours. transferred into natural sciences college</p>

<p>The department chair of an academic department can use his or her administrative staff and "power" to get you into a class in his or her department by making a space for you. There is an administrative person in every department who has access to the UT systems needed to do this.</p>

<p>Asking an individual professor to please let you join his or her class really doesn't work at Texas (at other schools, this works!), but, for example, if you were admitted as a chem major and you can't continue as a chem major if you don't get into second semester organic chemistry, you or your advisor or someone at UT should be able to talk to the "powers that be" in the chemistry department to get you into some section of that class (it might be the 8 am section or the 6 pm section).</p>

<p>Yea! Daughter got in today!
UTSA 3.625 gpa, Liberal Arts, 37 hours (21 AP, 16 in college)</p>

<p>Congratulations!</p>

<p>Thank you!!</p>

<p>We don't have to pay till orientation... It wouldn't make sense for them to try to charge us for something we haven't signed up for since your tuition is based on how many classes you take.</p>

<p>I was also accepted yesterday :)</p>

<p>3.47 from UTSA
43 hours (+12 CLEP)
COLA</p>

<p>Actually, if you look at the Spring guide, we cannot register until next Wednesday for classes.
strange.

So I called the advising office for Natural Sciences and asked them about what happens if I cannot get into a class that is full.
Here is the official answer: check with your adviser.</p>

<p>and advising on orientation is first come first serve on Monday, so if you know what I mean....</p>

<p>yeah, monday is going to be HELL.</p>
