Enrollment Services Workshops

Current CSULB students are encouraged to attend free workshops to learn about registration, educational leave, financial aid, scholarships, and other processes related to their enrollment at CSULB.

Workshops are hosted either in-person or virtually by ZOOM. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming workshop!

Current students may attend this workshop to learn how to use online tools in MyCSULB Student Center to manage their academic career — such as the Degree Planner, Academic Requirements Report, and Class Schedule Planner.

This workshop is currently unavailable. A new workshop is under development. Stay tuned!

If you are a current student thinking about taking some time away from CSULB, we recommend applying for Educational Leave. This workshop will help you understand the requirements and benefits of a leave. Plus, learn how to avoid losing your catalog rights and having to re-apply to the university when you wish to return.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of students and their educational records. Student assistants who request access to student educational records must complete FERPA training. This training ensures that student assistants with access to student educational records understand the protection of those records under FERPA policy.

Students who are hired on campus in Student Assistant roles at CSULB are required to complete FERPA Compliance training as part of their data security clearance. When you are hired as a Student Assistant, be sure to complete the following:

  1. Student Assistant PeopleSoft Student Administration System Security Authorization Form (DocuSign initiated by your supervisor)
  2. Student Assistant Student Administration System Confidentiality Agreement (DocuSign)
  3. Watch the FERPA Compliance Training video and submit quiz results (link in video description) confirming your FERPA training has been completed.
