Tips for a Successful Registration Process

1.****Review the Class Schedule

2.****Academic Advising

Please note that only students with Academic Advising holds will be required to meet with their advisors. Academic Advising holds will be active for all students who are on academic probation, subject to academic disqualification or on academic reinstatement.

If you have any questions about the advising policy, please contact the Academic and Career Advising Services at (831) 582-3937.

If you have not been assigned to an Academic Advisor and have declared your major, please contact your Academic Program.

3. Holds

All holds must be cleared before you can register. log in to CMS Student at MyCSUMB  to view any holds that may be on your record. Hold definitions and contact information can be found by clicking on the details link under the hold within your CMS Student Center.

4. Fees & Tuition


The deadline to pay tuition and fees for the Spring 2014 term is January 3, 2014. You may pay your bill any time between registration and the due date.

Students are offered different options to pay:

Campus Service Center

100 Campus Center

Student Services Building

Seaside, CA 93955-8001

If CSUMB does not receive your payment by January 3, 2014 you will face disenrollment from all of your classes. Students who enroll after January 3, 2014 will be required to pay tuition and fees prior to registration. Any student who abuses this payment policy may be required to prepay his/her tuition and fees for future terms. Prompt payment is appreciated.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Tuition and Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial tuition and fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed tuition and fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed tuition and fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.

More information regarding tuition and fees can be found at the following website:
