All first-time freshmen and first-time transfer students admitted to California State University, Northridge (CSUN) must electronically file their Intent to Register in classes for their first semester before the deadlines below. Filing is easy. This guide explains how.
No deposit is required to file Intent to Register at CSUN.
The following deadlines for filing your Intent to Register are based on your semester of admission. First time freshmen and first-time transfer students have the same deadlines:
- Spring 2021 - File intent as soon as possible after you are admitted.
- Fall 2021 - File no later than 11:59 pm on May 1, 2021, or as soon as possible.
If you do not file intent by the deadlines above, you may be unable to attend CSUN in the fall semester. For other deadlines that might affect your eligibility to enroll, visit our Admissions Deadlines Page.
When you file, take a screen shot of the My Status confirmation message to verify your Intent to Register decision and save a copy for your records (see Step 4).
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.
In My Status box, select the link "Intent to Register (Click here to Accept/Decline Admission)."
If you have already filed your Intent to Register, or if the deadline to file intent has passed, the message will change.
The Intent to Register page displays. Review the message carefully. Then click the appropriate button to accept or decline CSUN’s offer of admission.
To return to myNorthridge without recording your Intent to Register, click Back to Portal (upper right corner).
If you accept or decline, you will be automatically returned to your myNorthridge home page.
Your Intent to Register decision is confirmed in the "Applicant" section of My Status.* We recommend printing the confirmation for your records.
Note: To change your decision after filing intent online, contact Admissions and Records at (818) 677-3700 or firstname.lastname@example.org
*My Status displays on the Applicant and the Home tabs.
Congratulations! That’s it, except…
