ePermit facilitates the process of CUNY students obtaining permission to register for courses offered at other CUNY colleges. Students can submit an ePermit application directly from their CUNYfirst self-service page. After you have submitted your ePermit, please allow ample time for the processing of your application(s).
As in the past, approval of permit requests remains in the hands of faculty advisors at a student's home college. If a request is turned down, students will be notified electronically of reason of the denial. Once all parties have reviewed and approved your ePermit, you will receive an e-mail informing you that your ePermit has received final approval. Students will pay for an approved course when they pay for other courses at their home college.
Prior to taking courses at another institution a student should inquire at the host college for registration dates and procedures governing permit/ visiting students. Issuance of this permit does not guarantee enrollment at the host college. A student must obtain approval in advance to take courses at another college if they are to be credited toward the degrees at CSI. Students are reminded that they must complete a minimum of thirty credits through courses taken at CSI, including at least half (50%) of the major courses, to be eligible for graduation.
Tuition for courses taken on permit at other CUNY colleges must be paid at CSI by the assigned due date. The bill from this registration, together with the approved permit will enable students to register at another CUNY college.
Follow these steps:
You can complete a CUNY ePermit Form by logging on to CUNYfirst After logging in click on HR/Campus Solutions on the top left side of the page. Click on Self Service under Menu and click on Student Center. This will bring you to your student center page. Click on the academics drop down and select ePermit. Follow the instructions for filing a permit request on the e-Permit site.
To be eligible to file for a Permit, you must:
a. be matriculated and currently in attendance
b. if an undergraduate student, have a cumulative GPA of 2.00
c. if a graduate student, have a cumulative GPA of 3.00
d. not have any stops on your record
e. have all required immunizations completed
Permits will not be issued to the following:
a. Non-degree students
b. A readmitted matriculated student who is not currently enrolled or who does not need the permit courses for graduation.
c. An incoming newly matriculated student who requests a permit for the semester or summer session preceding his/her effective date of admission
Courses will be transferred to CSI with the grade assigned by the host college and included in the CSI GPA. The number of credits transferred for each course will be the value assigned by the host college. (i.e., ENG 151 is 4 credits at CSI, an equivalent course taken on permit is 3 credits at the host college; upon transfer the student is awarded 3 credits for ENG 151 on their CSI transcript with the host college's name duly noted.)
A student may cancel his/her e-permit request at any time prior to registering at the Host college. If a student enrolls in a course at the selected Host college and decides not to attend the course, it is the student's responsibility to cancel the course registration at both the home and host campuses as well as the e-permit request.
The student should notify his/her Home college of the cancellation before classes begin to avoid a tuition liability and to prevent any academic consequences.
