Welcome to Matador Advising Hub!

The Hub advisement staff welcomes you to California State University, Northridge (CSUN).

The Hub offers a variety of support services in order to promote and foster student development and academic success. Holistic services include first year advisement, assistance in identifying short and long term goals, and referrals to College and University resources for academic, personal, and professional development.

We are excited that you are at CSUN and look forward to getting to know you better. Please stop by to say hello and let us know how we may assist you.

To begin the Fall enrollment process, students must complete Pre-Enrollment Steps 1 through 3 listed below. Please complete all steps in the order listed as soon as possible.

Pre-Enrollment Step #1 - Not Anymore - Title IX Training

To maintain a safe environment CSUN staff and students are required to complete "Not Anymore" (.pdf), an online, violence prevention program. To complete this training and have the Title IX hold removed please log into your MyNorthridge Student Portal and locate the link for "Not Anymore". If you need extra assistance view the step by step how-to guide. New students cannot be enrolled into classes until they complete this training.

Pre-Enrollment Step #2 - Pre-Enrollment Information Workshop

The Information Workshop explains the pre-enrollment process, registration holds, terms to know, and other information. The workshop also explains the Hub Questionnaire which must be completed for students to be assisted with first semester enrollment.

Pre-Enrollment Step #3 - The Hub Questionnaire

The Hub Questionnaire will help us gather information about your interests, academic history, and enrollment preferences. Please submit the Hub Questionnaire as soon as possible so that we may assist you in a timely fashion.
