Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

Special Categories of Registration

Permit/Visiting Students

Permit students from within The City University must submit a valid CUNY permit through the ePERMIT system from their home college to the CSI Registrar’s Office prior to registration. Visiting students from outside The City University must submit the Visiting Student Application available online on the Registrar's website along with documentation from their home schools that they have permission to enroll at CSI.

Undergraduate first-year students in Macaulay, and CUNY BA programs can take e-permit courses in their first semester, and throughout their college careers; other undergraduate students can start taking e-permit courses in their second semester and can continue thereafter. First semester transfer students may also take a course on ePermit, with eligibility based on the previous college GPA.

Senior Citizens

The Board of Trustees of The City University of New York authorizes colleges to permit residents of New York State sixty years of age and older to enroll in undergraduate courses, on an audit basis without tuition charge and without credit, on a space-available basis. Individuals who enroll shall be charged an administrative fee ($65), the student consolidated service fee $15), as well as any other fees they may incur.

Senior citizens may enroll as undergraduate degree degree-credit student, but may not be categorized as an “audit” student and a degree student during the same semester or session.

Senior Citizens are not permitted to register tuition free for any graduate level course and utilize a tuition fee waiver.
