  2. Then click Next.

I am currently registered to graduate but Im doing well in a class I’m currently in. I can’t seem to register to retake the class in the summer

Camille Johnson

Hi Jesenya! If you are registered to graduate in Spring 2022, you will not receive an enrollment appointment for Summer 2022 or any other future semesters. You will need to change your graduation date in order to be issued an enrollment appointment for summer. To request a graduation date change, email [email protected] with your name, CWID, and major.

Ryan Wiltz

I am trying to register for Summer classes and have been unable to register due to my record inaccurately indicating a prerequisite is still pending. This is not the first time I have had this issue. I have called and emailed registration 5/11/22 and still have not heard back from anyone. Per voicemail, office is still closed for in person visit. Please advise

Camille Johnson

Hi Ryan! I would recommend getting in touch with the department offering the class to inquire about having a permit issued. You will need to provide them with your CWID and the particular section information of the class. Since you mentioned having the same problem in the past, you may also want to consult with your advisor to see if changes need to be made to your TDA.

Moises

I've added my desired courses to my shopping cart but once I checkmark all of them no enrollment appears on the top left, only a delete button. I even tried the other method where you add each course one by one by when doing that I noticed there wasn't an enrollment step to move to.

Camille Johnson

Hi MoisesI It sounds like you might not be able to add classes at the moment because your enrollment appointment isn't open yet. We have a guide on how to find out when your enrollment appointment opens at: https://csuf.screenstepslive.com/s/peoplesoft/m/70025/l/1470408-viewing-enrollment-appointments

If your enrollment appointment is already open, please contact Registration and Records to inquire into the status of your account. They can be reached at [email protected] or 657-278-7601.

Yegganeh

I have completed enrolling in all my classes; however, there is no section nor instructions on how to pay. Does it take a few days for the payment to show up in the student portal?

Camille Johnson

Hi Yegganeh! Yes, it may take a few days for your charges due to be posted on the portal. Please keep an eye on the "Financial Account" portion of your Student Homepage. There, you will be able to check your account balance and charges due, as well as make an online payment. Student Business Services has information on how to make payments on their website at: https://sbs.fullerton.edu/services/payments/Default.php

Eunkyo Seo

I am currently trying to enroll in 2 general education classes within categories: A.1. or A.2. and A.3.. What exactly are the courses for each category so that I may search and enroll in them?

Camille Johnson

Hi Eunkyo! Please refer to the following website for more information on GE courses and categories: https://www.fullerton.edu/undergraduate/general_education/courses.php

You can also find this information on your Titan Degree Audit (TDA). We have guides on accessing and interpreting the TDA here: https://csuf-erp.screenstepslive.com/m/50072

If you have additional questions about GE requirements and enrollment, you may want to speak with an academic advisor. Here's the website for the Academic Advising Center, where you can find more information on advisement: http://www.fullerton.edu/aac/

Miguel Caro

After June 30th will I not be able to register for fall anymore?

Camille Johnson

Hi Miguel! You can still enroll, but you won't be able to pay fees on June 30 while CashNet is closed. On July 1st (or possibly a little later) the payment system will go back up again.

Miguel Caro

when’s the last day to enroll?

Camille Johnson

Hi Miguel! The last day to add Fall 2022 via the portal is 08/28/22. After that, you could still enroll but the process will be different (either via permit or late add request).

You can view the Registration Calendar : http://records.fullerton.edu/apps/calendars.aspx
Or Registration Guides: http://records.fullerton.edu/registration/registrationguides.php

to look up important dates and other enrollment information.

Eunkyo Seo

Also when it says that waitlist available places are 43 of 45, is that saying that there are 43 seats open?

Camille Johnson

Hi Eunkyo! That means that there are 43 waitlist spots open and that 2 people have signed up for the waitlist already.

Mairani

I am currently enrolled in KNES 348 for night class. However, I decided I wanted to do a morning class instead so I am waitlisted for another KNES 348. Because I am already enrolled in the night class, will it allow me to enroll in the morning KNES 348 class? I haven’t dropped the night class because I’m afraid I won’t get in the other one since I’m still on the waitlist (#1 spot).

Camille Johnson

Hi Mairani! The system will not let you enroll in two sections of the same class. You would have to drop the night section before you can add the morning section. I would recommend attending both sections for now and talking with the instructor to see what the chances are of a spot opening up in your preferred section.
