Email - Check your @my.csun.edu e-mail regularly or forward your university e-mail to an account like hotmail. Remember that the @my.csun.edu is the official Cal State Northridge communication method. It is the student's responsibility to monitor his/her University e-mail. Not checking e-mail is not a good reason for missing deadlines.
