CUNYfirst stands for Fully Integrated Resources and Services Tool. For the university, it has meant a massive upgrade in how things are done.
This Web-based system makes it easier to access and update personal information, enter grades, register for classes, make tuition payments, and much more. CUNYfirst has permanently replaced such aging legacy systems as CUPS, SIMS, and WebSIMS.
As of April 2013, the campus 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.
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.
