How to Enroll (Register) in CUNYfirst
This action is selected when you want to add a course; see the detailed step-by-step instructions below.
This action is selected when you want to remove (or withdraw) from a course. Please make sure to consult the academic calendar for drop and withdrawal dates.
This action is used to exchange one course for another. This action will not allow the first course to drop unless the second course can be added. If the second course returns any error, the first course will not be dropped. This is the only way course changes should be attempted; doing so via individual enroll and drop actions can result in the loss of classes.
