Current Undergraduate and Graduate Registration

Current / Continuing Undergraduate Student Registration

Current / continuing undergraduate students register via CUNYfirst. Information regarding the coming semester's availability of the Schedule of Classes and registration appointments is sent via email during the current semester. Students are assigned a registration appointment within CUNYfirst. This appointment is for the on-line system and does not require students to attend in-person registration.

View Your Registration Appointment Date and Time

Log into CUNYfirst, look for "Enrollment Dates" located in a blue box on the right hand side of the page, click on the link in the box, select the appropriate term, and click "Continue."  Attempting to enroll prior to your assigned appointment time will result in an error message. However, you can add courses to your shopping cart in advance of your appointment. Please note that courses in the shopping cart are not automatically added to your schedule; you must complete the registration process to be enrolled. 

Current / Continuing Undergraduate Students in Need of Advisement

Visit the department in which they are majoring. You can view the complete list of the available majors, minors, and concentrations, as well as a listing of the departmental advisors. For general education requirements, please visit the Center for Academic Advisement and Student Success, 3207 Boylan Hall.

Graduate Student Registration (New and Current / Continuing Students)

Both new and current graduate students register via CUNYfirst. Information regarding the coming semester's availability of the Schedule of Classes, and registration appointments is sent via email during each current semester. New students receive instructions and information regarding registration when they are admitted. Graduate registration is accomplished via open enrollment. Registration appointments are not assigned; all graduate students are granted access on the first day of registration.

Notes for Both Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Permissions, Overtallies for Closed Courses, and Prerequisite Overrides

These issues are handled through departmental waivers. Students should visit the academic department that is offering the course in question. Entering of a departmental waiver does not enroll a student in the course(s). Once waivers are obtained, students need to complete their registration in CUNYfirst.
