Registering for Classes

You will want to spend time tuning your academic plan a few weeks prior to the start of registration. You can use Schedule Builder in CUNYfirst to view your Enrollment Appointment and to begin to add courses to your plan. You will only be able to enroll into these courses starting on the date and time noted under Enrollment Appointment. For example, November 10th 2:45 PM means that your "Get This Schedule" button will begin to work starting that date and time.

Priority Registration for Winter begins October 27th.

Priority Registration for Spring begins November 10th.

To search for Winter course offerings, select Spring as the term and then select Winter under Session.

You can use the Advanced Search feature to search for courses by Hunter Core requirement.

 

Common Registration Issues

 

CUNYfirst is indicating I do not meet the pre-requisites requirement, Department Permission is required, or there is a hold preventing registration:

Search the class and view its course notes for any special requirements such as membership in a student group or courses that you must have completed or be in the processing of completing this semester. If you meet criteria and CUNYfirst does not allow registration, please reach out to the academic department offering your course directly. Visit the listed departmental website to locate their contact information   http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/majors

Please note that due to high volume, departments may take a few business days to respond to you. In the event you do not receive a response within 72 business hours, please follow up directly with them or consider scheduling an appointment with them via Navigate (if you've declared the program) by selecting the department instead of your Scholar advisor.

If a course requires Department Permission, check to see if all sections require permission or only specific sections. If you meet all pre-requisites and and there is no student group requirement, contact the academic department directly.

If there is a hold on your account, you must visit the Student Center in CUNYfirst and resolve the listed holds under Holids. Clicking in each hold will tell you whether its blocking registration and what needs to be done to resolve the holds. Note that holds like Do Not Cancel, and No Late Fees have no impact on your ability to register.

 

I am receiving an error messaging indicating Invalid Enrollment Appointment:

You have not reached the date and time on which you can begin to register. To access this specific date and time please go to CUNYfirst, launch Schedule Builder and navigate to the term you are registering for. You will see the date and time next to the session you are registering for. For example:

Regular Academic Session Nov 10, 2020 2:00pm to Feb 4, 2021 11:59pm

My schedule is exceeding the enrollment term limit of 17.5 credits:

You must submit a Credit Overload request if you’d like to take more than 17.5 credits. Please note that we will only review these requests after all grades have been submitted for this current semester. Credit overload requests are not guaranteed and you should register for critical courses first and reserve the class(es) of least importance for when your credit overload request is processed. https://ww3.hunter.cuny.edu/sp/view.php?id=49117

 

My desired course has closed and I need this course for my major:

We are unable to secure seats for students in closed courses. Please consider an alternative requirement such an outstanding Hunter Core, Hunter Focus, Pluralism & Diversity, and or language requirement as listed on your DegreeWorks page.

If the course in question has filled your desired section, your enrollment will need to be in a section with remaining seats.

We highly encourage you to use Schedule Builder to build a schedule based on remaining open seats in the course you need.

We understand that you may have other scheduled obligations such as work but unfortunately are unable to enroll students into any closed courses.

If you require assistance with how to proceed with major-specific courses, please contact your departments major advisor. Visit the listed departmental website to locate their contact information:   http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/majors Please note that due to high volume, departments may take a few business days to respond to you. In the event you do not receive a response within 72 business hours, please follow up directly with them or consider scheduling an appointment with them via Navigate by selecting the department instead of your Scholar advisor.
