Registration for Re-admitted State Support Students

If you were previously admitted to CSU, Chico but did not register for the previous regular semester you will need to complete another university application to be readmitted. (This does not apply to students who filed a Planned Educational Leave-PEL.)

Step 1. Are You Ready to be an Online Student?
You will need a computer and Internet access to participate in online courses. If you haven't already done so, check our suggested minimum computer configurations, and test your system by viewing the demo to see if you have the bandwidth (network speed) essential to participate in the courses.

Step 2. Apply for Admission
You may request that an email with program and application information be mailed to you. It is important to visit the Office of Admissions site for more complete details concerning application deadlines and procedures.

Note: if the formal admissions deadline has passed, there may still be a way for you to start enroll in courses (see Open University).

Step 3. Talk to an Advisor
It is recommended that you talk to an advisor during the admissions process: (1) general academic advising (2) major program advising. Be sure you have read the section of the University Catalog that pertains to admissions and program requirements before you call your advisor.

Step 4. Prepare your Course List
This process will provide you a list of your courses before using the Portal to enroll. Check out the current schedule of classes in Redding and schedule of online classes. List the courses in which you wish to enroll for the semester.

Step 5. Registration through the Portal
Using your course list, you are now ready to logon on to the Portal to register.

Step 6: Pay Your Fees
You will be responsible to pay your registration fees by the appropriate deadline. For all pertinent information about financial aid, check the Financial Aid website or call the Financial Aid & Scholarship Office, 530-898-6451.

Step 7: How do I Access my Online Classes?
To access your online classes you will need to create a personal account in the Portal. Follow the directions to "Get An Account" in order to initialize your Wildcat e-mail and Portal accounts. Your 16-digit CSU, Chico ID card number will be required for you to setup your account. If you cannot find your Chico State Wildcat ID card, please contact the Center for Regional and Continuing Education, 530-898-6105. Once you have established your account, the portal will automatically provide you with access to the courses in which you are enrolled. Click on the "Student Services" tab and look for the "Courses Resource" link in the left-hand column. Many instructors should have instructional materials available starting one week prior to the beginning of the semester.

Step 8: Be Prepared for Class

If a syllabus is posted, review the course outline and booklist. Approximately two weeks before classes start, you can purchase your books online through the CSU, Chico Bookstore.

Step 9: How do I Drop an Online Class?
To drop an online course during the add/drop period, utilize the registration tool on the Portal. Go to the Student Records Office web page to check the deadline dates for adding and dropping courses, or call 530-898-5142.
