Check the status of your graduation application on CUNYfirst
After you have applied for graduation by submitting your DAAF to the School of Education and receiving an email of your initial approval, you can check the status of your graduation posting through your CUNYfirst account. Recommendations for teacher certification are sent about a week after your graduation posts.
Log in to your CUNYfirst acount. Go to Self-Service -> Degree Process/Graduation -> View Grad Status. You may see updates such as "Applied" or "Pending". Once your graduation is posted, you will no longer see "View Grad Status" as an option. You should check your unofficial transcript (under Self Service -> Academic Records) to see your degree conferred.
If you have questions about your graduation status or CUNYfirst message regarding your graduation, email degree audit division.
If your graduation has posted but your NYSED TEACH account does not show college recommendation, email firstname.lastname@example.org and request for an institutional recommendation.
