GET Registration

Students register for classes through the GET website. In order to provide optimum access to all students, GET is restricted to specific numbers of students within specific classifications each day. A "Registration Appointment Time" is placed in each student's GET account prior to the first day of registration for each term, which includes the assigned dates that each student has been approved to access GET. Students that don't receive an Appointment Schedule should contact the Records Office located in Administration 409, (323) 343-3840. Tuition and fees must be paid prior to registering for courses. For other payment plans and payment time frames, visit the Student Financial Services at http://www.calstatela.edu/univ/sfinserv/index.php.

What is a PIN?

A PIN is a Personal Identification Number that is randomly assigned to every student at CalState LA and is used to access GET and other student specific academic records. The PIN is the 'key' to the student's academic record and should be kept separately from the Campus Identification Number (CIN). The PIN is the final security check to obtain private and confidential student related information and must be kept in a secure location by the individual student. Student's that forget or lose their PIN must either contact the GET Helpline at (323) 343-7438 to have it mailed to them or come in-person to the Records Office, located in Administration 409, in order to obtain their PIN. PIN's are never released over the telephone.

Auditing a Class

Enrollment as an auditor can be approved by the class instructor only after students eligible to enroll on a credit basis have had an opportunity to do so. Students who registered for other classes may add classes for audit only by special arrangement with the class instructor. Regular add procedures do not apply. Students must submit a program change form, approved by the instructor for audit, at Administration 409. No entry of audited courses is made on the student's study list, grade report, or transcript.

Add / Drop / Withdraw

Add / Drop

Students use the GET Student Center to add and drop courses from their initial registration appointment time until the eleventh business day of the semester. The add/drop deadline varies for intersessions, summer term, and other special sessions. Please refer to the class schedule for specific deadline dates.

Classes dropped during this period will not appear on the student’s transcript.

Late Add

Students use the Late Add Request form to add a class after the add deadline and before the fifteenth business day of the semester (census). The census date varies for intersessions, summer term, and other special sessions. Please refer to the class schedule for specific census dates.

A Late Add request requires payment of a $25 late submission fee and signatures from both the class instructor and the chair of the department offering the class.

Students use the Petition to Add Class after Census only in cases of a documented technical error on the part of the University.

Withdrawal

Students use the Withdrawal Petition to drop classes between the add/drop deadline and the 80% point within the term. Please refer to the class schedule for these specific dates as they may vary. A withdrawal is included on the student’s transcript with a W grade. Undergraduate students are limited to 18 semester units of withdrawals for their entire undergraduate career.

Late Withdrawal

Students use the Withdrawal Petition and Addendum to drop classes during the last 20% of a term. Please refer to the class schedule for these specific dates as they may vary. A late withdrawal is included on the student’s transcript with a “W” grade. Undergraduate students are limited to 18 semester units of withdrawals for their entire undergraduate career.

Students are not permitted to withdraw after the end of a term.

Fees

Changes to enrollment (add, drop, and withdrawal) occurring after the start of the term are assessed a pro-rata charge (reduced refund). The Disbursement Office website offers information regarding refunds.

Enrollment Verifications

The National Student Clearinghouse is the authorized agent for California State University, Los Angeles, for providing enrollment and degree verifications to third parties. Current students may use the self-service application available through the MyCalStateLA portal to print their own enrollment history, verifications, check loan deferments sent to your lenders, and link to real-time information on student loans.

For assistance with Student Self-Service, contact the Clearinghouse at service@studentclearinghouse.org or call (703) 742-4200.

Enrollment Waitlist

Cal State L.A. uses waitlists in the enrollment process to help students register for the classes they need. Waitlists are also used to optimize enrollment and monitor high-demand classes where additional sections may be needed. Please review the Enrollment Waitlist FAQ so that you are familiar with the process.
