Students complete their registration transactions online using CUNYfirst. If a student encounters a problem that would normally require in-person assistance the Online Registraton Request Form can be completed. The issue will be reviewed by a member of the Registrar staff who, if the student meets all course requirements, will complete the enrollment transaction.
We are happy to assist you with the registration process! Please either send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voicemail at 718.982.2120, and a member of our staff will contact you: make sure to include your full name and EMPLID so that we can better assist you virtually.

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 ("hold") 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.
