Registering for classes
Students are required to be enrolled and registered for classes prior to the first
day. Check the academic calendar for registration dates, deadlines and priority classification.
Most current students can register ONLINE at MyCSU during registration dates. You must have a current CSU I.D. and a pin number to register. If you do not know
your ID or PIN, you may obtain them online through MyCSU. Be aware that all students
must complete the online Registration Agreement before any registration can occur.
Log into your MyCSU account and click on Academics to complete this. Furthermore,
all undergraduate students, except for those majoring in Organizational Management,
must contact their advisors for clearance prior to registering. Your registration
period is determined by your classification. Organizational Management majors will
have their courses approved by their advisor after they register online.
Students who may not use MyCSU to register include freshman, students in the bridge
program, students on academic probation and students with a hold blocking registration.
If you are in one of these categories, please contact your advisor for assistance

- Understanding that extraordinary circumstances arise on rare occasions which may preclude
a student from completing an academic term or course, the University has established
a Financial Appeals Committee. In these situations, this Committee may waive the refund
rules as stated in the catalog, and charges may be adjusted. Petitions to appeal for
such an exception may be submitted to Student Accounts either by mail, fax, or in
person. All appeals will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Your appeal will be
accepted for review by the Student Accounts Office once all information is complete
and required documentation has been received. The petition will then be presented
to the Financial Appeals Committee for decision. The Committee meets once a month
and will review appeals received five business days prior to the meeting. Appeals
received within four business days, or less, will not be reviewed until the next month's
meeting. For more information click here: Student Appeals.
