Steps to Enrollment
Important! If you do not enroll in classes and attend beyond the 20th day of instruction for the semester to which you were provisionally admitted, you will need to reapply for admission to the University to enroll in subsequent semesters. Take these steps to enroll:
- Obtain academic advisement. Advisement is recommended as part of the registration process. Contact your graduate program for information regarding specific courses and restricted courses.
- Watch for your registration appointment. It appears in the paper Registration Access Mailer and online in My Checklist. Look for any registration holds and clear them before registering.
- Register for classes. The myNorthridge Portal Login on the CSUN home page at www.csun.edu is your gateway to self service. Use myNorthridge to enroll in courses, pay tuition and other fees, check financial aid status, view class schedule and grades, print an unofficial transcript, and more.
- Satisfy Test Requirements. Plan to take the English Writing Proficiency Examination (WPE) during your first semester of enrollment.
- Apply for financial aid if needed. To be considered for financial aid, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after January 1 as possible. It's best to complete the FAFSA online and make sure to enter CSUN's Federal School Code of 001153.
- Apply for housing. Students who choose to live on campus at Cal State Northridge will find modern, spacious apartment-style living.
- Meet immunization requirements. If you were born on or after January 1, 1957, you must present proof of immunization for or immunity to measles and rubella during your first semester at CSUN. If 18 or younger, provide proof of immunization for or immunity to Hepatitis B by the end of your second semester.
- Send required transcripts. If you are currently enrolled in classes at a community college or another university, you will need to have your current college send a final official transcript. If the current college or university is your degree school, have the final official transcript sent when the degree has been posted. Your final transcript will be used to verify that all coursework and the degree you indicated as work in progress have been completed.
