To get the most out of the Enroll in Classes CSUN app module, view the following steps, which touch on registering for co-requisite classes, using a permission number and wait listing for closed classes.

New to CSUN’s registration system? You'll find step-by-step instructions to view registration appointment, add or drop classes and more in the How To Guides.

4.  The Fall Semester 2014 Enroll page displays. You can search for classes using two options:

  • Browse Schedule: View all courses offered for the term and choose Subject and Course Number.
  • Add by class number: Quickly find a class section by entering its five-digit number into the Add by class number field. This shortcut bypasses the Class Details page, so use it only if you have already read the course requirements.

Select Browse schedule.

6.  A list of Biology courses displays. Select the course you want to add, for example, BIOL 101: General Biology and Lab.  Tip: Use the search bar to look up a word in the course title (e.g., “human”) or the number of units (e.g., “2”).

7. The class sections (BIOL101-01, BIOL101-02, BIOL101-03, etc.) display.  Find an open section that fits your schedule. Tap More details to view prerequisites, co-requisites, special instructions, waitlist capacity, textbooks and more.

8.  The More details page displays. This is the only page that will explain course requirements including: course description, textbook information, requisites, waitlisted seats, consent (permission), class notes, class location, meeting dates and times.

A lecture course like BIOL 101 requires concurrent enrollment in any section of the corresponding lab, BIOL 101L. You'll need to add both classes to your cart BEFORE you may enroll in either.

To add the BIOL 101-03 lecture to your cart, return to the previous page by selecting the “101” breadcrumb navigation at the top of the page.

15. The CSUN app will confirm success for your enrollment request or report an error.  

  • If an error message displays, it will help you identify the problem, such as a missing course requisite, schedule time conflict, or a mistyped permission number. This example shows a registration hold that prevents you from enrolling until you've resolved it. You may keep the classes in your cart, resolve the hold and return later to add them.
  • If an error persists, contact the instructor, the department offering the class, or Admissions and Records for assistance.

Select the Monitor icon to return to the Enroll module.

Please note: You cannot drop a class that requires concurrent enrollment in a co-requisite course for which the 5-digit Class Number has been prescribed on the More details page. You can drop or swap BIOL 101L, however, because the co-requisite lab is any BIOL 101L section.
