General Tips and Tricks

  • If CUNYfirst tells you that there is a hold on your account, you can click on "Details" on the "Student Center Page"  to find out which department to go to in order to remove the hold. If another school has the hold on your account, you will need to speak to the department at the appropriate school. 
  • If CUNYfirst is not allowing you to register for a course because there is an error stating that you do not have the prerequisites to register for the course, you will need to go to One Stop for Students/ OASIS (Hunter North 217) and show them a screen shot of your course history in order to resolve this issue.
