 Registration Information

Permission numbers- Students who need a permission number to add courses  (August – May) will email llangford@csudh.edu before classes begin the up-coming semester.  After the semester begins, you must reach out to the instructor of record to request (not demand) permission to add the course.

In summer ONLY, May 25- Aug 1 – All Foundation (320, 325, 330, 360) permission numbers are obtained by emailing cdevelopment@csudh.edu as these numbers are held for new admits.

During Registration Period- Specialized permission numbers are obtained by emailing llangford@csudh.edu.  Your request must be verified and approved eligible to add before receiving the permission number.

Other Departments (PSY, SOC, etc.)- you will need to reach out to the specific department for permission numbers. You may be able to find their information in the department’s website.

 WAITLISTS

Waitlist- How does the waitlist work? The system automatically enrolls the next person on the waitlist when a student drops a course. However, once the semester begins, you will need to contact the professor to request a Late Registration Permission Number.
