This guide reviews how CSUN staff granted security access to the Schedule of Classes (SOC) navigate SOC menus and pages when using the SOLAR SA Application (PeopleSoft blue pages).

Step 1

When portal links are not available, access SOC components using the SOLAR SA Application pages.

Breadcrumbs reflect the path taken by users as they navigate through menus and folders.

Step 4


Select from two menu types:

  • Lookup menus (click the magnifying glass to view options from a search page)
  • Drop Down menus (click the down arrow to select an option from a defined list)

TIP: After entering data, use the tab key to advance to the next field. This allows SOLAR to process the information. Wait for the “System is processing” indicator to stop flashing (top right corner) before typing the next entry; otherwise, your entry in the previous field will be lost.
