I need to update my address and contact information. Who do I send it to?
You may send updated contact information via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also complete a Student Profile Update form (also known as a Biodata Revision form) available at the Records office and online. Submit the completed form to the front desk at the Admissions and Records office.
I've registered for classes. What happens next?
You will not receive a billing statement in the mail.
Fees due information in on myCSUB. It is imperative that the campus also has current
email address and contact information on file.
The class I want to register is closed. What should I do?
If the course you are registering for is full, try selecting another section for the same course. The Admissions and Records office does not retain waiting lists for instructors. If an instructor allows to add students to the course, you must obtain a signature on an "Add" slip. Submit the "Add" slip to the records office for processing.
The class I want to register for overlaps in time with another course. Can I still take both courses
Yes, however, registration for courses with overlaps in time is not allowed online or by telephone. Please speak to the records office staff member to complete your registration for this course. The student must be fully aware that the course times overlap and it is the responsibility of the student to make arrangements with the instructor.
When I registered for a course, it says I have a "prerequisite" error. What is this?
If the registration system says you have a prerequisite problem with a specific course, you will have to go to the appropriate department to get an approval signature on an ADD form. Take the signed form to the Records office for processing and registration of the course.
