User Preferences

User Preferences are established to assist you with navigation through your MyCSULB pages. The values that you can set are Institution, Academic Career, Term, and Aid Year.  Institution was established at the time your MyCSULB account was created.  By updating your Career, Term, and Aid Year, you will not have to enter the data each time you display a new menu. Remember to update these values when a new term is in session or a new Financial Aid Year has begun.
