To avoid disenrollment from classes, students must pay all tuition and fees by established dates/deadlines. Please visit Fee Payment Schedule.
Note: Disenrollment means that your registration in some or all classes, including wait listed classes will be cancelled. There is no guarantee that you will be able to re-enroll in the same classes.
1. How can I schedule my advisement for Fall 2020?
Beginning May 26th, Fall 2020 Freshmen who have declared their Intent to Register by the May 1st deadline will be sent an invitation to schedule their advisement. Please be sure to check your CSUN email account (ending with @my.csun.edu) for important messages, including a link to sign up for a freshman workshop.
2. I need help activating my CSUN email account. What should I do?
Please visit Information Technology for detailed instructions on how to activate your CSUN email account. Be sure to check your CSUN email account regularly for important deadlines and information.
3. When will I be able to enroll in my Fall 2020 classes?
Freshmen served by Matador Advising Hub must complete the Pre-Enrollment Steps outlined on this site prior to scheduling their advisement and enrollment. Freshmen may enroll in their classes beginning June 8th and continuing through the summer. Please note that the university has set aside sufficient class seats for the incoming freshmen who will be enrolling during the summer.
4. I am an incoming EOP freshman. Who do I contact regarding my advisement and enrollment?
All incoming EOP-admitted freshmen are served by the Student Services Center/EOP Satellite housed in their respective academic college. Exploratory EOP freshmen are served by the Advising Resource Center/EOP.
5. I am participating in the Liberal Studies Integrated Teacher Education Program (ITEP)-Freshmen Option. Who do I contact regarding my advisement and enrollment?
Students participating in the ITEP-Freshman Option are served by the Liberal Studies Program located in EA 100. ITEP-Freshman Option is for students interested in an integrated 4-year BA+Credential program. If interested in ITEP-Freshman Option, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for eligibility and advisement information.
Students majoring in all other options of Liberal Studies are served by the Matador Advising Hub throughout their first year at CSUN.
6. I have registered for support services with Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES). How do I schedule my advisement for Fall 2020?
Students registered for support services must complete all three pre-enrollment steps as outlined on this site. If preferred, students who have registered with DRES may attend an advisement workshop or meet with an advisor individually. If an individual advisement is preferred, please call us at (818) 677-2900 to make a request. If you should need accommodations for your appointment, please let us know.
7. What should I do to prepare for my advisement session?
You should prepare a tentative class schedule to review with your advisor. However, remember that the schedule you create is just for practice. You should make a list of your questions prior to your advisement session. Since our advisement sessions this summer may take place online, you may want to review and practice how to use Zoom (a free video conferencing tool). For more information about Zoom, please see https://www.csun.edu/it/zoom for more information.
8. What should I expect for my advisement appointment?
Traditionally our advisement appointments have been in-person group sessions. However, out of an abundance of caution, our advisement sessions will be presented through Zoom (a free video conference tool) until further notice. Students will have an opportunity to speak with advisors during the session.
9. How long will my advisement session take?
Please allow two to three hours for the advisement/registration session.
10. Will I be asked to reschedule my advisement session if I do not arrive on time?
Students who arrive late may be asked to reschedule.
11. Can I bring a guest or family member to attend the advisement/registration session?
Due to limited seating and privacy issues, only students with a confirmed reservation will be permitted to attend the advisement/registration sessions.
12. I have registered for my Fall 2020 classes but was disenrolled due to non-payment of fees. What should I do now?
Please email your Hub Academic Advisor at email@example.com for assistance. Although you will be able to re-enroll for classes, you may not be able to enroll in exactly the same courses.
