Instructions For Using CUNYfirst

To register, follow these simple Step by Step Instructions:

  2. The CUNYfirst homepage will open, welcoming you to an Enterprise Menu. Select Student Center then a new page will open.
  3. If you have active service indicators, a STOP Hazard will appear at the top near your EMPLID ID number and you may not be able to continue with registration. Your stops or blocks will be listed on the right of the page under HOLDS.
  4. If no stops exist, you will be able to continue by selecting SEARCH on the left.
  5. To SEARCH for classes, enter the institution- YORK COLLEGE and term SPRING 2021. Select a subject and enter the course code.

Enter the new course code in the REPLACE WITH box. Review your selection and then click on REPLACE (if correct) or CANCEL (if the change should not be completed). If the class is available, your course listing will reflect the change.
