New Students

Fall 2024

New Student Enrollment begins in June 2024!
Watch your email for invitations to webinars and other helpful resources for successfully enrolling in classes, including making connections with Academic Advisors (and Success Coaches, for first year students).

Many of these emails will be sent in late April/early May (after you have submitted your intent to enroll!), and we will be available to assist you with enrollment throughout June. Important: enrollment does not take place at orientation!

How it works

  • Step One: Enrollment Tutorial

    Complete the enrollment tutorial on the Academic Advising website to learn about the enrollment process and to be prepared on your enrollment date!

    The Enrollment Tutorial will be updated and ready for your viewing on May 28, 2024. The tutorial will provide information on how to connect with Academic Advisors (and Success Coaches, for first year students only) and their services which become available in the month of June.*

    *Specifics are included in the Enrollment Tutorial. Our goal is to assist you with enrollment during the month of June. Enrollment does not take place at orientation!

  • Step Two: Attend a workshop on or before your enrollment date

    Learn how to "enroll the cougar way" by attending one of our hands-on virtual workshops in June. We are available to answer your questions about the technology and tools used to enroll in classes. Dates and links to the sessions to be posted in May.

  • Step Three: Enroll on your enrollment date!

    On your assigned enrollment date (which will be visible in MyCSUSM) you will be able to begin enrolling in classes (you can enroll through add/drop, but this is the first date you can begin enrolling).

When do I enroll?

You may enroll in courses beginning on your assigned enrollment date through the add/drop period, and view your current course schedule in MyCSUSM.
