If you are planning to graduate in January, 2015, you must apply via the CUNYfirst system.  If your desired semester of graduation is not available to you, please contact the Graduation unit of the Office of the Registrar.  You will be evaluated for any majors and or minors currently on your record.  If you wish to be considered for a different major or minor, you must meet any eligibility requirements per the College Catalog and formally change your major or minor online at  You must change your major or minor (including adding or dropping a major or minor) by September 17, 2014 in order to have it evaluated for graduation in January 2015.  Changes of major/minor after September 17 will not take effect until spring 2015 and WILL DELAY YOUR GRADUATION.
