CSUN Mobile App - Enroll in Classes


You can now enroll in classes using the CSUN app. The app is native to iPhone and iPod Touch (iOS 5.0 or later) and Android phones (Android 2.2 or later). You may use the Web version on tablets, laptops and desktop computers. To get the most out of the Enroll in Classes feature, view the following steps.


1. Launch the CSUN app. From the home screen, select Enroll in Classes.

4. On the Enroll screen, search for classes using any of the three following options:

  • Browse Schedule: Use this option to find all courses offered for the term.
  • Advanced Search: Narrow your search by subject and academic career (undergraduate, graduate or noncredit).
  • Add by class number: Use this shortcut to add class section to your cart by entering its five-digit class number into the field. This option bypasses class details, so use it only if you are already familiar with the course requirements.

Select Browse Schedule.

  • Class enrollment status (open or closed)
  • Number of waitlist seats available if class is closed
  • Prerequisites and corequisites

ANTH 518, a lecture course, requires concurrent enrollment in the corresponding lab, ANTH 518L. You will need to add both classes to your cart before enrolling. As a shortcut, jot down the lab’s five-digit class number, 18312, to be ready to add it later on.

13. ANTH 518-01 displays in your cart; a green check mark indicates success. You are not yet enrolled!

If the class you’re adding doesn't have a co-requisite, you can finish enrolling at this point by choosing Submit Cart or continue to search for more classes.

Before you finish enrolling in ANTH 518, you must add the co-requisite lab to your cart.

  • If you forgot to jot down the co-requisite’s five-digit class number from the More details screen, you must go back to the Browse Schedule and look up the class again.
  • If you jotted down the five-digit class number from the More details page, enter it into the Add by class number box and select Add. Then repeat steps 10-12 above.
