Maintain Class Search Department URLs

This is a tutorial for class scheduling staff only. No log in is required.


This guide reviews how CSUN staff granted security access to the Schedule of Classes (SOC), specifically College SOLAR Coordinators, can assign and maintain department URLs that display on Class Search.

Once the department URL for a Subject Area (e.g., BIOL) is entered, the URL will display on Class Search for every course, class section and term in that department.

SOLAR does not automatically update department URLs. Keep department URLs current, especially before the start of registration. You may access this component before and after schedule build.

  1. Log into myNorthridge Portal at www.csun.edu.
  2. Under the Staff Tab, click SOLAR SA on the menu.
  3. Click Department URL Maintenance on the right.

Step 2

The Find an Existing Value page displays.

  1. Click Search to view all subjects in your college (leave the "Search by" field blank).
