If you are new to CSUN, your first step is to create a student account in order to receive a CSUN Student ID Number and a CSUN User ID.
Your CSUN Student ID Number is used to identify your academic records and your current student status.
Your CSUN User ID will allow you access to the myNorthridge Portal, the student system used for all online services and registration. You can view and manage your academic, financial and personal information through this self-service portal. Access the portal login at www.csun.edu or view the Portal Help Guide.
You are issued a CSUN email account when you create a student account. Your CSUN student Gmail account serves as your official email account with the University. This means that the University will use it for official communications and you are responsible for monitoring this account. For instructions on forwarding your email to another account, see the CSUN IT website.
