CUNYfirst stands for Fully Integrated Resources and Services Tool. For the university, it means a massive upgrade in how things will be done in the future.
This Web-based system will make it easier to access and update personal information, enter grades, register for classes, make tuition payments, and much more. CUNYfirst, which permanently replaces such aging legacy systems as CUPS, SIMS and WebSIMS, will be implemented in phases in the coming years.
As of the start of April 2013, the campus has migrated to CUNYfirst student records management. Faculty, staff and students can and should claim their CUNYfirst account immediately. Students or staff who have CUNYfirst accounts from a prior CUNY school need not reclaim an account. Please be patient with the administrative offices that are working to finalize the migration and address the inevitable issues that arise with such a large undertaking.
As you claim your accounts and test out the new tools, feel free to contact CUNYfirst support to report any anomalies you may note via e-mail or by telephone, 718.951.4200.
