General Tips and Tricks

  • If CUNYfirst tells you there's a hold on your account, the Help Desk can't make it go away. You will have to talk to whatever office placed the hold on the account to resolve the issue.
  • Sometimes you have the correct prerequisites or conditions for a course, but CUNYfirst doesn't recognize that fact. For this sort of problem, you will need to go to OASIS, in 217N. (Make sure it's not just that the course is full.)
