Spring 2019

Enrollment Guide - Spring 2019 (1.3M, PDF

To reserve your space for spring 2019, you  must complete all three steps (see below) of the intent to enroll process no later than Friday, Sept. 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Our offer of provisional admission is only valid for the spring 2019 term. You may not defer your enrollment to a later semester. Our offer of provisional admission will be withdrawn if you fail to complete all three steps of the intent to enroll process, as described below, by the deadline.  

Step 1: Accept our Offer of Provisional Admission by Friday, Sept. 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. 

  • Start by logging into your myCI (myci.csuci.edu) and clicking on “CI Records.” Your login information was emailed to the email address you provided on your application.
  • Once logged in, scroll down to the bottom of the page (under “Admissions”) and “Accept” or “Decline” admission.

Step 2: Choose a Mandatory Orientation Session by Sept. 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. 

  • After accepting our offer of admission, you are now ready to register for a mandatory orientation session. Look for the link, “Register for Island View Orientation (IVO).” You will be directed to log back into your myCI student portal in order to register for the session that pertains to your major.
    • IMPORTANT: If you do not receive an email confirmation, then you did not successfully register. Retain a copy of your confirmation as it may be necessary to prove registration. 

Step 3: Pay the Non-Refundable Orientation Fee of $50 by Sept. 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. 

  • After registering for an orientation session, you must complete the final step in the Intent to Enroll process: pay the non-refundable orientation fee by Friday, Sept. 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. It is highly recommended that you pay the orientation fee before logging out. If you log out prior to submitting payment, you will need to use the payment link embedded in your myCI Student Center. To get there, log on to myci.csuci.edu and click on “CI Records” under “My Links.” For detailed instructions, visit www.csuci.edu/sbs/online-orientation-payment-process.pdf
    • IMPORTANT: You will receive an email confirmation if your payment was successfully received. If you do not receive an email, then your payment was not received. Save a copy of the receipt as it may be necessary to prove payment.

Can I defer payment of the orientation fee until my financial aid award is disbursed?
Yes, but NOT ALL STUDENTS WILL QUALIFY. Students who filed a 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act application on or before the March 2, 2018 deadline AND have an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of 4,000 or less will be considered for a deferment. You must check the “Holds” section of your Student Center (visible in the upper-right corner of your portal). If you do not see “FA Orientation Deferral,” then you must pay the fee by September 28, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. or our offer of provisional admission will be withdrawn – no exceptions!

If you see “FA Orientation Deferral” noted in the “Holds” section of your Student Center, then payment of the orientation fee will be charged to your first semester’s account. In other words, your fee will be deferred (but not waived).

Is the orientation fee refundable?
Once paid, the orientation fee is non-refundable and may not be applied to a future term. This means you will NOT receive a refund even if (a) you request to have our offer of admission (provisional or final) withdrawn at a later date or choose not to enroll; (b) our offer of provisional admission is withdrawn because you failed to meet an admission or enrollment requirement or deadline (including the transcript deadline); or (c) our offer of provisional admission is rescinded after reviewing your final transcript(s).

  • IMPORTANT:You may be held responsible for paying the orientation fee if you were deferred and any of the above conditions apply.

  • NOTE: You may submit an orientation-fee appeal to orientation@csuci.edu; however, you must have an extenuating circumstance for it to be approved. 

Step 4: Submit Final Official Transcripts and AP/CLEP Exam Scores by noon on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018

  • The deadline to submit final official transcript(s) with summer 2018 grades posted is by noon on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018. Transcripts must be requested from all colleges attended even if no credit was earned. Electronic transcripts are preferred. It’s your responsibility to request official transcripts from all community colleges and/or universities attended and have them submitted by the deadline. No email or faxes are allowed. Please mail transcripts to: 

    CSU Channel Islands
    ATTN: Admissions - Sage Hall
    One University Drive
    Camarillo, CA 93012

  • Deadline to submit Advance Placement (AP) exam scores is also due by noon on Friday, Oct. 5, 2018. If you took AP exams in high school or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, you must request that your official scores be sent to us directly from College Board by this deadline (unless you have already done so). 

*AP/CLEP credit awarded from your transferring institution will not suffice. College Board archives scores taken four or more years ago, this requiring additional processing time. Please plan accordingly. 

Note: If you have taken coursework from an institution outside of the United States, your transcript must be evaluated by a credentials evaluation service, such as International Education Research Foundation (IERF) at www.ierf.org. A detailed report is required by the transcript deadline.

Step 5: Submit proof of Associates Degree for Transfer (ADT) 

Students who earn a California Community College Transfer Associates Degree (SB1440), also known as AA-T or AS-T, must send us a final, official transcript showing the degree as being "awarded". This should be done ASAP after earning your AA-T or AS-T. 

If you haven't already done so, visit your community college admissions and records office and/or the transfer counseling center to request an AA-T/AS-T evaluation and verification. If you have not or will not be earning an ADT then this request does not apply to you. 

Step 6: Financial Aid priority document deadline is Friday, Oct. 12, 2018

Please refer to your “To Do” list for documents that are required. Visit the Financial Aid website for more details. 

Step 7: Submit Residency Documents (if required) 

Deadline to submit Residency Documents for students with residency status of "Another State or U.S. Possession" or "Undetermined" is Friday, Oct. 12, 2018. Students who complete and submit their residency documents by Oct. 12 will be processed by Dec. 15. Those who submit their documents after the deadline, or submit incomplete documents, may not have them processed in time for spring 2019 term. This may result in students being charged non-resident tuition for spring 2019. Please visit: go.csuci.edu/CAresidency for more information. 

Step 8: Apply for Housing (optional)

Although not required for incoming transfers, living on campus is a popular option for both new and continuing students. Beginning in October 2018, interested students may submit a housing application in myCI. For additional details, please visit the Housing website

Step 9: Submit your Immunization Records 

Please check the Student Health Services website for current immunization requirements. Failure to comply with the immunization requirement may result in a hold being placed on your account, which will prevent you from registering for classes in the following semester. For additional information, visit Student Health Services at go.csuci.edu/Immunizations, call (805) 437-8828 or e-mail student.health@csuci.edu.
