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.

Registration appointments for continuing students
Continuing students can find their registration access date by logging into their CUNYfirst account and navigating to their Student Center: the date will be posted in the “Course Planning and Enrollment” tile. 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 any negative service indicators ("holds") please clear them before you begin registering for classes. You can view these service indicators by clicking on the “Tasks and Holds” tile within the Student Center.
Please make sure to meet with your assigned academic advisor(s) prior to attempting to enroll for classes: your advisor information is listed under the “Academic Record” tile.
