Registration dates and detailed instructions are given in the Schedule of Classes and the Enrollment Services website for each semester. Continuing students and newly admitted graduate students are sent a registration appointment date. Undergraduate students who are new to CSULB register when they attend the Student Orientation, Advising and Registration program (SOAR).
Students may enroll in classes via "MyCSULB" starting on the enrollment appointment day assigned by the University, and through the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters. During the third week of the semesters written permission, on a Late Registration Request form, is required from the instructor and a stamp of approval is required from the department. Late registration requests will be considered during the fourth week of instruction with the payment of a missed deadline fee.
Students receiving faculty or department "permission" to add classes via MyCSULB or who have been added to an instructor's wait list or roster must still complete the add procedures by the dates listed each semester in the Schedule of Classes. No request to add classes will be considered after the fourth week of the semester unless there is an approved technical error.
Note: Students must complete the procedures for official registration in classes. Instructors, advisors and departments cannot add students into classes.
Students are not permitted to attend any class for which they have not officially registered.
