You’ve applied to Cal State Northridge....You’ve activated your CSUN User ID and Password.... What’s next?
Review My Checklist!
My Checklist is your personal list of requirements to complete the application process. The list tells you what’s missing—your Incomplete Tasks. It also confirms the items CSUN has received and evaluated—your Completed Tasks.
My Checklist stays with you throughout your student career at Northridge. If you’re admitted and eligible to enroll in classes, you’ll also see your enrollment appointment, registration holds, total outstanding charges due, and financial aid to-do lists (if applicable). My Checklist changes over time with your situation, so review it regularly.
Go to the CSUN home page at www.csun.edu and:
- Select the myNorthridge Portal link
- Log in with your CSUN User ID and Password.

Your myNorthridge page displays on the "Applicant" tab.
Locate the My Checklist box in the center column.
Scroll or tab to move through the entire checklist and sections.
My Checklist displays on the Applicant and Home tabs of myNorthridge. Your applicant tab eventually goes away.
Depending on your situation, My Checklist may have as many as six sections, including:
(outstanding charges due if any)
- Incomplete Tasks
- Completed Tasks
You can click the headings to close or open the sections. The default position is "open."
*The Registration section displays only for students who are admitted and eligible to enroll in classes.
The Status section of My Checklist displays your:
- Academic career and class level
- Semester applied for
- California residency status
- Academic plan (major)
- Application status*
- Intent to Register status (required of first-time freshmen and first-time transfer students admitted to fall and spring semesters)
*Admission is provisional pending verification of the academic information self reported on your CSU Mentor application.
The Incomplete Tasks section of My Checklist displays the items required to complete your application process. Be sure to complete these items.
- For Fall 2015, freshmen must take the EPT/ELM tests (or be exempt) no later than the May 2, 2015 test date. To register for a test, visit the CSUN Testing Center

- Maximum unit load reminder
- Links to enroll for any terms currently open to enrollment

Note: Although you can access "Enroll/Register for Classes" in different ways, your incomplete tasks for admissions display only in My Checklist.
When you are eligible to enroll, the Incomplete Tasks section will display any Registration Holds.
Important! Resolve all registration holds before enrolling.
For questions about Registration holds, contact the office indicated in the hold message box that displays when you roll over the hold message.
