Try Redlands, N. Fontana, or Loma Linda. Nice closer cities which don't include a massive commute. All about 15 miles away form the school.
The 110,000 people that live in Victorville are doing so because they have no choice? FTR, it's only 30-35 to CSUSB, and there are plenty of other people who make the commute -- not that I'd recommend it, but a $400 apartment in Victorville could be just as safe/nice as a $700 one in SBD, that was the point I was making.

The ideal spot IMO for OP would be SBD 92407. SBD isn't all bad.

The only decent areas of SB is above highland ave near the golf course, the university or the foothills. I still suggest you look into nearby redlands or loma linda.

That was something I was curious about. I asked my school counselor about out-of-state tuition but she wasn't sure (it being CSUSB, and unfamiliar). I've already contacted CSUSB about a couple of other things but I have to ask about out-of-state tuition. I got a driver's license in California and I voted there. I'm not sure if that will clear me for residency or not.

BTW: I did live in SB for a year but it was a while ago and I can't remember what it was like. I wasn't going to school or working while I was there so I wasn't too familiar with the lifestyle in that area.

92407 is actually where my mom lives. I plan to stay with her when I move there. But, like I said, if possible I'll try to work out a more independent living situation (with roommate(s))

And a side note: When I talked to my counselor yesterday, she told me I'm 3 classes away from an AAOT (Associate Arts Oregon Transfer). Once I get that, I believe I'm in the clear to transfer to CSUSB. Although, I know that that university takes into account the amount of credits you have, and if I don't quality as a resident then it might be harder. I still have to get filled in on some more information from that school.

And thanks for the replies everyone. I didn't get back to this thread right away, but there was a lot of help.

also, sorry for double post.

We can see your view on illegal aliens, but why would that affect OP's decision? Presumably OP has some info on SB courtesy of their family. If they'll be a full-time student, the current employment rate may not be a big factor for them. Hopefully they'll make a firsthand visit to explore their options and see what rentals are available. They could talk with a property management company and other sources about what's available, in SB, and other nearby areas (including Redlands, perhaps).
