Welcome to the Transfer Page (for admitted transfer students)

To ensure your success, advisement is required prior to registration for all incoming transfer students. To begin the advisement process, please complete the Online Overview Workshop. After successful completion of this workshop, please call 818-677-3537 to meet with an advisor.

Topics covered during advisement:

  • University and college degree policies, procedures, and requirements

  • Course requirements and pre-requisites

  • How to read and understand your Degree Progress Report (DPR)

  • Questions and Answers

What should I do BEFORE my advisement session?

IMPORTANT: Transcripts

  • If you have not submitted all transcripts from the community college(s) and/or universities you have attended, please do so as soon as possible.

Your Degree Progress Report (DPR) will not be accurate until your transcripts have been received and officially evaluated by Admissions and Records. Without an accurate DPR, it can be difficult for CSUN advisors to advise you. To facilitate advisement, it is recommended that students bring an unofficial copy of their transcripts to their advisement session for an informal review of their previous coursework.

Where are the advisement sessions held?

  • All advisement sessions are held in Bookstein Hall (BB). Visitor parking is available in the B5 or B6 parking structure at a cost of $8.00 per day. For location information, refer to the Campus Map.

  • Please be on time. Consider travel time and traffic conditions in the Los Angeles area to make sure you are not late.

  • Please bring a pen or a pencil with you to advisement.

Please note: seating space is limited to students. Parents and friends are welcome to enjoy the campus and surrounding community while waiting. Advisement duration is approximately two hours.

Before Your First Semester

In order to attend CSUN next semester, you must:

  • Declare your intent to register by the established deadlines.
  • Submit all final transcripts by the established deadlines.
  • Pay your fees by the established deadlines.  Please refer to University Cash Services for deadline dates.  Students who do not pay for their classes by the deadlines will be disenrolled and will be required to re-enroll for their classes after payment is received.

How to Guides for Students

Please refer to the How To Guides for Students to learn about your myNorthridge portal and the SOLAR Student Center.

  • Passing the UDWPE is required prior to enrolling in 400-level courses in the major.  For more information, please visit the Upper Division Writing Proficiency Exam website.
