Pop-up windows are necessary to use certain campus web applications and web forms, and the browser(s) you use for these websites may need to be configured to accept pop-ups. Use the following instructions to configure your browser(s) to accept pop-up windows from these CSULB sites.

Newer browsers have built-in pop-up blockers that you may not know you have enabled. Also, if you have installed third-party applications to block pop-ups (such as the Google, MSN, or Yahoo! toolbars), you may need to consult vendor documentation to allow pop-up windows for desired websites.
