How to Register for Classes

After you have been admitted to the University, complete the steps on your Admitted Student Checklist. Then follow these steps to register for classes:

1. Activate your NetID

Activate your NetID so you can access MyCSUEB, the online student self-service system. Your NetID and activation code are included in your admission packet.

2. Indicate Your Intent to Register

Before you register for the first time, go to My CSUEB and indicate your Intent to Register. Within 48 hours you will be able to see your 'Enrollment Appointment Time' inside the MyCSUEB Student Center, indicating when you can enroll in classes. After receiving your enrollment appointment time in MyCSUEB, check for holds and take the appropriate action to remove any holds that may be on your account. 

3. Browse the Class Schedule, Check for Holds, and Enroll in Classes

Go to MyCSUEB to review the variety of classes available. After making your class selections, enroll in classes. If you are unable to enroll, you may have a hold on your student account requiring action. Check your "To Do List" in MyCSUEB for more information. Tutorials on how to do this are available on the MyCSUEB Help page.

See Classes for details about how to view available classes in MyCSUEB, receive academic advising, and choose classes for your major or degree.

4. Review Fee Payment Information and Deadlines

Fees are due by the payment deadlines. To avoid cancellation of your enrolled and waitlisted courses, pay your fees by the due date. There are several ways you can pay your enrollment fees:

  • Pay by check or credit card (MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) online using the payment link in MyCSUEB.

Late Registration

If you enroll in classes during the Late Registration period, you will pay an additional $25 late fee. You must pay your fees by the late registration period due date to avoid cancellation of your enrolled and waitlisted courses.
