Mobile App


You can use the CSUN Mobile App to enroll in classes in two ways:   

  • Download the free app called CSUN 
  • Use the web version on a tablet at  

This guide explains how to register for co-requisite classes, use a permission number and wait list for closed classes with the CSUN App. 

You may also search for classes, plan class schedules in Registration Planner, and view your enrollment appointments, weekly schedule, grades, and on-campus test scores.

Tip: We recommend having the five-digit class numbers* in hand before enrolling. While the app lets you search for classes from scratch, it’s easier to prepare the class numbers in advance.

*Note: For spring 2022 only, some class sections will have four-digit Class Numbers while others will have five digits. Use the four- or five-digit numbers to enroll as you normally would. Both will work.
