    If the courses has prerequisites, please fill out the Course Approval Request Form. You can find the form on the left hand menu, under “How to Register.”

    The form will require the following information. 
    Once you submit your information, please allow 1-2 business days for a response. You may be required to submit further documentation to determine your eligibility, so it is important to you check and respond to email correspondence. If we determine that you are qualified to take a course, we will send you further information on how to register.

    If the course is full, you will first need to attend the class on the first day and obtain the instructor’s signature on a Winter Sessions registration form. Next, you will need to visit the department chair for final approval. You can then return to the CPIE registration windows with the signed form to register in person. If the department issues a permit, and you have access to self-service registration through MyCSULB, you can register and pay online.
