Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

Registration

Students must register each semester using their CUNYfirst self-service account. Registration and appointment materials are sent by the Office of the Registrar prior to registration to all current, readmitted, and newly admitted students.  Instructions for using CUNYfirst are also available online.  An open registration period is scheduled at the beginning of each semester for students who miss their registration appointments or who are returning to CSI too late for an appointment to be scheduled.

Students who do not meet the course prerequisites will be unable to complete the registration process.  Undergraduate course prerequisites could include any one or more of the following: matriculated or non-matriculated undergraduate student status; curriculum restrictions; completion of other courses; completion of other courses with a minimum grade; corequisite courses (which must be taken with the course); class or standing; and/or department/program approval/permission.

If a major requirement has a prerequiste(s), it automatically becomes part of the program requirements and the credits are added to the total credits for the major.  In some cases, the same course may satisfy both the major and a general education requirement. 

A detailed registration schedule and class listings and course information are available online each semester on the Registrar's website. Registration is not complete until all financial obligations have been satisfied.
