Have you been conditionally admitted to CSUSM for Fall 2014? 

August 20th was our last Orientation for new Fall 2014 students. If you did not attend an Orientation and are still planning on enrolling for Fall 2014, you may have access to register starting August 25th. We highly encourage students to visit drop-in advising, starting August 25th, prior to enrolling. Please note that there may be additional holds that may prevent registration.  Advising drop-in hours will be listed on the Undergraduate Advising Services page HERE.
