Step 1. Getting Started
First, go to www.fullerton.edu
Second, click on the ‘Students’ tab
Step 2. Create your CSUF Portal Account
Please create your CSUF Portal account immediately using your CWID and PIN or no later than two days prior to the class start date. This will ensure timely access to your course.
Your CWID is your Username and your PIN is your Password. You will be prompted to create a unique Username and Password the very first time you log in. You will also be required to verify your identity and create security questions in the event you need to reset your password. This is mandatory and cannot be bypassed.
- If you need to retrieve your CWID, you may do so online by going to https://my.fullerton.edu/csufcwid
- If you need to retrieve your PIN, you may do so online by going to https://my.fullerton.edu/Accounts/StudentPin
- If you are unable to retrieve your CWID or PIN, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you are a continuing student since March of 2008, you may have already created a unique Username and Password to log into the CSUF Portal.
- If you do not remember your Username and/or Password, you may use the Need help logging in? link to retrieve your username or reset your password.
Step 3. Access your CSUF Student Email Account
You are now logged into the CSUF Portal. All official communication will only be sent to your CSUF student email address. Please note that it is mandatory to use this email account for all class communication, including all individual communication and questions. You are responsible for checking your campus email account on a regular basis.
Your CSUF student email account is accessed from the landing page of the portal as indicated via the envelope icon.
Step 4: Access your Course
Face-to-face virtual courses are facilitated in Canvas. Use the resources below to become familiarized with the learning platform you are using. Your class may not be listed in the learning management system until the start date.
From the CSUF Portal, click Canvas on the left-hand column of the screen.
