Reminder for June 2021 Degree Candidates:
The deadline for submitting your graduation application was March 1, 2021. Please make sure to check your CUNYfirst account or DegreeWorks for current information about the status of your graduation application.
Information about awarded degrees will be posted in CUNYfirst within one month of the end of the spring term, and graduates will receive a congratulatory email at that time.
Since we'll be using preferred email addresses to contact graduates, please take a moment to check CUNYfirst to make sure your most current email address and contact information are on file so that we can share the news with you!
Information about Degrees and Diplomas:
CUNY is now using a new diploma vendor (Parchment) and has finalized the process for student retrieval of digital diplomas and the mailing of physical diplomas to our students. Please make sure your current, accurate address information is listed in your CUNYfirst account (don’t forget to include your apartment number, if applicable, and check the spelling of your name).
7-10 weeks after degrees are awarded, graduates will receive an email notification with instructions for electronically claiming their diploma through the Parchment website (Parchment.com). Please be advised that any holds that would prevent the issuance of a transcript (such as Bursar, Collections, or Financial Aid Exit Interview) will also prevent the diploma from being sent out: check your CUNYfirst regularly to make sure you’ve taken care of any holds prior to the end of the semester.
Welcome to the Office of the Registrar!

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.
