  9. Select Permit type, add comments if neccessary, verify and submit.
  10. Once submitted, the status of the permit can be checked through CUNYfirst at any time by clicking "Search ePermit."
  11. ePermit approval does not mean a student is automatically enrolled for a course. Once an ePermit has been approved, then the student must register for the courses on his or her own. In CUNYfirst the student will now have a term for the host CUNY school as well as for Brooklyn College. When registering, it is important to make certain that enrollment is done under the correct college and term.
  12. All tuition and fees for the permit courses must be paid to the home CUNY college.
