Registration appointments for continuing students

Continuing students can find their registration date by logging on to their CUNYfirst self-service account. You must meet with your advisor prior to registering and if possible bring with you your CUNYfirst “EMPLID”, which is your 8-digit ID number.  Once you have been advised you may log in to CUNYfirst and begin registering. Registration can be done from any computer with internet access and students may register for courses on or after their appointed time. If you have a negative service indicator (previously referred to as a “stop”) please arrange to clear it before you begin the registration process. You can view these service indicators under “Holds” on the first screen of your CUNYfirst account.

***To view your registration appointment, please Claim Your CUNYfirst account.  Once setup, log into CUNYfirst and navigate to your Student Center.  On the right hand side of this page, under the heading “Enrollment Dates”, you will see your assigned registration appointment.***
