Once you have your course plan, review our step-by-step registration instructions for registering on the CSU Online website.

Purchase Textbooks

Required textbooks and other course materials are listed on the corresponding course page. You may also locate and purchase these materials online through the CSU Bookstore website.

Complete Required Training

CSU is committed to providing an informed and safe community for all students, regardless of where they live and study. To that end, all new students are required to complete Haven: Understanding Sexual Assault, an online course developed by the CSU Health Network.

Part one of the course is available to all newly admitted students and takes approximately one hour to complete. You must complete all modules by the first day of classes, or a hold will be placed on your account that will restrict your ability to register for future semesters.

To start the course, log in to RAMweb and click "AlcoholEdu/Haven: Sexual Assault Prevention" under the "Tools" heading.

Learn more about the Haven: Sexual Assault Prevention course on the CSU Health Network website.

The CSU Graduate and Professional Bulletin and the CSU General Catalog contain information about student rights, responsibilities, and University policies and procedures.

You will be required to submit a variety of time-sensitive forms throughout your time at CSU. From outlining your program of study to applying for graduation, these forms will keep you on track to complete your degree.
