For major and minor requirements, see your faculty adviser.
For more information about requirements, consult our Curriculum FAQs page.
Before registering for classes, you should get departmental permission for all courses where required.
- Graduate students need permission from their faculty advisers for all their courses.
- For foreign language, mathematics, and English Composition courses, you will need to see the relevant department about placement in the appropriate class.
- Undergraduates should consult academic advisers, as well as faculty advisers in their major and/or minor, to ensure they meet curriculum requirements.
See our Procedure FAQs page if you have other questions about registration—for example, if you want to register for courses at another CUNY college, or if you want to take a lot of courses.
Undergraduates must declare a major prior to their 61st credit. Students who do not declare a major within the first four weeks of the semester lose their New York State TAP (Tuition Assistance Program) funding.
Undergraduates must declare their minors before the 80th credit. Students who receive TAP awards and who are required to complete a minor should declare their minors before their sixty-first credit.
The procedure for declaring a major or minor is to pick up the appropriate form in the Registrar's Office (Shuster Hall, Room 106), get a signature from the appropriate Department, and return the form to Shuster Hall, Room 106. Click here for more information.
You should file for graduation at the beginning of your last semester. For more information about the filing process, consult the Office of the Registrar.
Keep in mind that before you register for your last semester, you need to see your Academic Adviser to be sure you have met all graduation requirements.
In order to request a transcript, you must pay a fee in Shuster Hall, Room 031 ($7 per transcript as of August 2005; the fee is waived if you are sending the transcript to another CUNY college). You can request a transcript by mail or online.
You can also go to the Transcripts Office in Shuster Hall, Room 106 to fill out the appropriate request form.
Note that transcripts which students request for themselves are unofficial. Official transcripts are sent directly to the school or institution you specify on your request form.
