You Should Know
Admission is provisional until all eligibility requirements and deadlines have been met, including enrollment and attendance in classes. 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 in the next available semester. If your application for admission was denied or your offer of provisional admission has been withdrawn, see Admission and Deadline Appeals.
- Send us your final, official transcripts as soon as your courses end and your grades and degree are posted. Your final transcripts are used to verify that you have completed all course work you indicated as work-in-progress on any preliminary transcripts. You can check for missing transcripts and other incomplete tasks in "My Checklist" in myNorthridge Portal. Send transcripts to:
CSUN - Office of Admissions and Records

Meet immunization requirements. All new students entering CSUN (and any CSU campus) for the first time in Fall 2020 and after will need to meet updated immunization requirements. These are not required for admission but are conditions for enrolling in classes. Students not meeting the requirements may receive a registration hold that prevents enrollment in their second-semester classes. Learn more at Immunizations.
