Must Haves

New Student Orientation

Congratulations on being admitted! As a new CSUN student, there are a couple of tasks you’ll need to complete before you can register for classes, such as submitting your proof of immunization or any missing test scores. But don’t worry, the myNorthridge Portal has a checklist of all the things you’ll need to complete.

My Checklist

My Checklist Screen Shot

One of the most important tools you’ll need as a CSUN applicant is My Checklist located on the myNorthridge Portal. My Checklist notifies you if you are missing any application materials or admissions requirements such as high school and community college transcripts, SAT, ACT or English Placement Test (EPT) or Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) test scores

Sign in to the portal often to look for updates on My Checklist. Before you can become a Matador, you must declare your Intent to Register, a requirement that will be posted in My Checklist. 

New Student Orientation

New students participating at CSUN orientation.

New Student Orientation is mandatory for first-time freshmen and recommended for all incoming students. You’ll receive a notification in the mail or via email with instructions on how to sign up.

Proof of Immunization

As a new student, you must submit proof of both hepatitis B and measles (rubeola) and German measles (rubella) immunization to the Klotz Student Health Center before you can register for classes. You can find more information about how to submit proof of immunizations on the Klotz Student Health Center website.

Student ID

You will need a student ID card to access services at the Delmar T. Oviatt Library and the Klotz Student Health Center.

To get a student ID, bring a valid driver's license, state-issued ID or passport to University Cash Services in Bayramian Hall 100. After paying the $5 fee, take your receipt to one of the Admissions and Records windows to have your photograph taken. See the Student Finance website for hours. To avoid long lines, purchase your student ID at least one week before the start of the semester.
