What to Expect at your Advising & Registration session:

  • Academic Advisors will provide guidance on selecting your first semester courses during your Advising & Registration session and through an online course in CI Learn (Canvas). 
  • Additionally, your transfer credit will be posted to your record at CSUCI prior to your Advising & Registration session enabling you to use various Student Success Tools such as your CI Academic Requirements Report (CARR) and Degree Planner (go.csuci.edu/gradtools).
  • Tuition and other fees for Spring 2024 are due January 16, 2024.  Detailed information on payment deadlines can be found on the Student Business Services webpage.

Note for guests accompanying students to Advising & Registration:

Students will initiate a collaborative relationship with an academic advisor during the Advising & Registration session. We encourage students to navigate this process on their own as they begin to take a more active role in their academic choices and other decisions. This means, all guests (parents, sibling, or significant others) will not be able to sit in on the Advising & Registration Session with their students. During this two hour time block, we encourage you to do a self-guided tour or check out the Camarillo Premium Outlets to eat or shop.

New First Year Student Registration – Fall 2024

New Fall 2024 first year students will select their Advising & Registration session date during their next steps in the admission process.  The Advising & Registration sessions will occur in June & July while Orientation will be held in August.  Please plan to attend both your Advising & Registration session and Orientation.  Advising & Registration session dates are as follows:

  • June 28, 2024
  • July 9, 2024
  • July 10, 2024
  • July 12, 2024
  • July 15, 2024

During the admission process, students will select their session date and time.  On-campus Advising & Registration sessions are encouraged for first year students in order to get hands-on support with their first semester schedule and familiarize themselves with their student success tools.  For those unable to come to campus, some virtual options will be available.  

What to expect for your first semester of enrollment:

  • CSUCI will pre-select five (5) courses for first-year students to enroll into for the fall semester during their Advising & Registration session through a guided registration process.
  • For most students, at least two (2) of your courses will be part of a learning community.  Learning communities are cohorts of students in the same classes with a common theme and support provided by embedded peer mentors.  
  • First year students should anticipate enrolling in a Math/Quantitative Reasoning course and an English composition course during their first academic year.  You may be guided into one or both of these requirements during your first semester.  
  • In May, you will receive a Joining the Pod survey regarding your first semester enrollment preferences.  We will use your survey responses to help us pre-select the five (5) courses and potential learning community.  

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

What if I need additional help with my schedule or want to change my schedule?

  • After your Advising & Registration session, you can use Drop-In Advising for additional assistance with your schedule.
  • Graduate students should contact their program director for advising. 
  • Tutorials on how to add, drop, swap and waitlist a course are on the web at go.csuci.edu/RRTutorials.

What if I am not ready to enroll for the term and have second thoughts about attending CSUCI once I have registered?

  • The Registrar’s Office or professors will not drop you from classes should you elect to no longer attend.
  • If you do not intend to enroll at CSUCI as planned, it is your responsibility to drop your classes by published deadlines.
  • It is also your responsibility to notify other departments of your decision to not enroll as planned (e.g. Financial Aid, Housing, etc.) and take care of any obligations. You are advised to notify these departments as soon as possible if you will not attend CSUCI to reduce charges associated with late cancellation.
  • If you chose not to attend CSUCI in your first term, you will need to go through the application process for a future term and may be required to meet additional admission requirements.

How do I change my schedule once school starts?

  • During the Add/Drop period (weeks 1-3), adding courses online is available and will require you to obtain a permission number from the instructor. Please note that adding during this time is at the instructor’s discretion.  Students may drop during this time without permission.
  • For Spring 2024, the Add/Drop period ends Friday, February 9th at 12 NOON.
  • Check out our Add and Drop Procedures web page for information on schedule changes later in the semester: go.csuci.edu/AddDrop.

Are there enough classes for me?

  • CSUCI tries to provide enough classes for students to achieve their degree. Some classes have more demand than others. Students should be prepared to have multiple options in the event classes or preferred sections are full.
