How to Register

All newly accepted graduate degree students must submit a non-refundable, non-deferrable commitment deposit of $250 (USD) to reserve their space in the graduate program and register for courses. The commitment deposit is not a separate fee, and it will be credited towards the student's first semester tuition charges. Commitment deposits are due three weeks from the date on the official acceptance letter. Please note: It takes an average of five (5) business days from the date the Commitment Deposit fee was processed in order to claim CUNYfirst accounts.


You MUST CLAIM your CUNYfirst account in order to obtain access to the CUNYfirst system. For step-by-step instructions on how to claim your CUNYfirst account, please visit the CUNYfirst section of the Hunter College website.
