Note to Spring Graduates:

Since CUNY's Spring 2020 Credit/No Credit option selection will be open in CUNYfirst until June 25th, we will not be able to finalize grades or run our usual end-of-term processes until after this date. Even though the degree conferral date is still officially June 15, 2020, transcripts showing proof of graduation will not be available until on or about July 1st.  Please make sure to check your CUNYfirst account or DegreeWorks for current information about the status of your graduation application.  

Since we'll be using preferred email addresses to contact graduates once their degrees are officially awarded, please take a moment to check CUNYfirst to make sure you have your most current email address and contact information on file so that we can share the news with you!

Please make sure you bring an unofficial transcript from your home college/university, or an authorization letter/email giving you permission to take the specific course at CSI for which you will attempt to register.  Please note that students may do all of their transactions online, rather than in-person, if they follow the directions on the Visiting Student application and file their application early.  Additional permissions may be required by the departments.
