You do not need instructor or department approval to add a class. Please submit an Open University registration form to the College of Professional and International Education Student Services Center located outside the west end of the Foundation Building.
However, if the class is full or you do not meet the pre-requisite requirements for a course you will need to obtain approval.
How to Register for a Full Class
If the class is full, please go to the class and see the instructor teaching the course. The instructor may grant you approval if there is space in the class. Print the Open University registration form and take it with you to the class you are trying to add. The instructor will sign your form which then needs to be submitted to the College of Professional and International Education (CPIE).
Note: In some cases, the instructor may issue you a permit so that you can register online via MyCSULB. You will need a CSULB ID number in order to do this. Please contact our Student Services Center for more information at 562-985-5561.
How to Register In Person if You Do Not Meet the Prerequisite Requirements
If you are not able to add a class due to not meeting pre-requisite requirements, please fill out a Course Approval Request Form. Our Open University Advisor will assist you via email in getting the necessary approval. You will be contacted in 1-2 business days with an update on your registration status.
The Spring 2019 Registration Form will be available on January 22, 2019.
