Summer Enrollment

This is a tutorial only. No login is required.


Some things are changing for summer 2023. However, the steps to set your summer registration appointment and later enroll in summer classes are unchanged. All students may follow these steps to register for summer classes.

— Eligible New and Continuing CSUN Students*

    1. Set your own appointment to register on a "first come, first served" basis starting 10 a.m. March 14 through March 20, 2023.
    2. Then enroll starting March 21 with Registration-by-Appointment period and after.
    3. You'll find these dates and more in the Summer 2023 Registration Calendar.

— Visiting Summer Students* — Wait to register until April 3, 2023, after the Nonrestrictive Registration period begins. Note: Before enrolling, visiting summer students should set up their CSUN account, user ID and password. See How to Establish Yourself in the System or contact The Tseng College (Extension) Summer).

For summer registration dates and policies, visit the website for your student group below:

  • Most CSUN students including the special year-round CSUN cohort program students and SPRINT students, you'll be enrolling in state-support courses. Use the Summer Term Registration Calendar.
    • Permission numbers may be required to add special year-round cohort classes. Please ask your program advisor for assistance.
    • SPRINT students will be notified in April of the list of eligible classes and their eligibility to enroll. Eligibility in a previous year does not indicate eligibility in the current year.
  • Visiting summer students, you'll be enrolling in courses on a self-support basis. Visit Tseng College (Extension) Summer.
