Registration is the final step in the matriculation process. When students have been admitted to the
University and have determined which courses they should take to meet specific requirements for
their degree, they are ready for registration.
An online Schedule
of Classes listing courses offered and detailing registration
procedures is available before registration for each quarter.
No student should attend classes until his or her registration
has been completed. Registration is complete only when all official
documents are properly filed, and all outstanding fees and deposits
are paid or arrangements for a payment plan are completed. Students
may not receive credit in any course for which they have not completed

Enrollment Limits - Effective Summer 2012
Beginning with the Summer 2012 quarter, all students, with the exception of those in specific programs and levels below will be limited to enroll in a maximum of 18 units.
- Liberal Studies and Computer Engineering majors
- Post‐Baccalaureate students (Graduate and Credential‐seeking)
- Extended University students
Students who have applied to graduate in the Fall 2012, Winter 2013, or Spring 2013 quarters are exempted from the limits. Students with a CSUB GPA of 3.3 or better may petition based on individual circumstance for an overload beyond 18 units to the Dean of the school of his/her major. The enrollment limits above will continue for the 2012‐13 academic year and are provided to allow the University to control and manage the distribution of resources while maintaining adequate access to courses available.

Wait List Instructions
First, not every course will have a wait list; that decision is up to the department offering the course. With the addition of the two-phase enrollment process, the waitlist instructions have been modified as described below.
Please be advised that there is no message or other alert sent to the student--or to the faculty member--that a student has been added to the course by the waitlist process. So if you are on one or more waitlists, please check your "myCSUB" account first thing every day to see if you have been added to the course.
Below you will find general information about getting onto waitlists and the waitlist process. Following that you will find separate waitlist instructions for those that are subject to the 15-unit limit and for those that are exempt from the limit. As of August 29, the second set of waitlist instructions will apply to all students.
General Waitlist Instructions:
To get onto a wait list, you must have satisfied the pre-requisites for the course. At the time that you put your name on a waitlist for a course, you have the option to indicate that you want to drop (swap) the waitlist course for a course in which you already enrolled.
We run the wait list process every night beginning on the first day of registration. It is run for the last time at the end of the last day to add for the term. If there is a spot open in a course, the waitlist process will check 3 things for the each student in turn on the waitlist for that course. If the answer to any of these 3 questions is “yes”, then that student will not be brought into the course, and the next student will be considered in the same way.
- 1. Are any pre-requisites not met?
- 2. Will the addition of the waitlist course put the student at or above the student's unit limit?
- 3. Will the student have a time conflict with the addition of the waitlist course?
Students subject to the 15-unit limit:
If you are already enrolled in 12-15 units, you are limited to the number of units of waitlist courses that will take you up to 15 units. If you are enrolled in less than 12 units, then you can request permission from the Dean of the school of your major to get on the waitlists in more units of courses—up to the limit of 15.
Students exempt from the 15-unit limit:
If you are already enrolled in 12 or more units, you are limited to 7 units of waitlist courses. If you are enrolled in less than 12 units, then you can request permission from the Dean of the school of your major to get on the waitlists in more units of courses—up to the limit of 19.
If you have any questions about this functionality, please contact your academic advisor or Dr. John Dirkse, Director of Academic Operations and Support at 661 654-6181 or email@example.com.
