All students must accept their offer of admission by paying their Enrollment Confirmation Deposit. The non-refundable, non-transferable deposit declares your intent to attend our campus and must be made in order to enroll in courses.  

Stay On Track. 

Maintain your grades and complete the courses required for admission. If you do not complete the outstanding coursework you reported on your application, you will no longer be eligible for enrollment and will be unable to attend CSUB.

Stay Connected. 

Check your MyCSUB and campus email accounts often. You are responsible for staying informed about your admissions status.

Turn in Documents. 

Turn in final transcripts and any other documents listed on your MyCSUB To Do List by the deadline listed.

Clear Holds. 

Check your MyCSUB account for any holds which will keep you from being able to register for courses. Click on the details to see which office at CSUB has placed the hold and instructions to get the hold removed. All students are required to submit proof of immunizations for measles and rubella and hepatitis B before beginning their second quarter of enrollments. Your MyCSUB account will be updated and a hold will be placed if your proof of immunization has not been received by the Student Health Center.
