College of Professional & International Education
  • ​If a course you are interested in taking in the College of Liberal Arts has prerequisites and/or is full, you may not be able to enroll automatically through self-service or in-person registration.

    If the course 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 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 need to wait until the first day of instruction to get the instructor’s signature on a Winter Sessions registration form. You can then return to the Foundation Building registration windows with the signed form to register in-person, or go to the department to get a permit so that you may register through MyCSULB self-service registration.
