Due to the start of the fall semester our department may experience a large volume of phone calls and email messages but please know we are doing our best to respond to you as quickly as possible. Typically, you can expect a response to emailed questions within 2-3 days. We appreciate your patience.

We are always developing ways to assist students in finding information they need, Please review our How-To Guides that may answer some of your questions:

  • How-To Guides & Tutorials at - Step-by-step instructions on where to see your To Do List, how to view your financial aid award; how to submit documents such as tax transcripts, proof of Selective Service registration, citizenship status and more.

We are pleased to share with you the recently announced information for students selected for verification.  The U.S. Department of Education announced on July 13, 2021 temporary verification relief for students and schools. This has allowed CSUN to “clear” (waive) verification requests for many of our CSUN students for the 2021-22 academic year. Check your  myNorthridge portal to check the status of any document requests for the 2021-22 academic year.

If you have documents on your “To Do List” that must be submitted, we have two options you can use to get your documents to our department. Please make sure to include your Student ID number on each page you submit. Documents without an ID number will not be processed.
