ePermit

The process for an ePermit request will no longer be done through the CUNY Portal. The new ePermit business process will go through CUNYfirst. The CUNYfirst process will allow students to request permission from their HOME College to attend the other CUNY Colleges and enroll seamlessly for courses throughout CUNY based on established Transfer Rules. 


Each permit request is for a single course and its equivalent. Thus, a student needs to complete a permit request for each equivalent course he/she would like to take at other CUNY Colleges. Courses taken on permit must meet the student’s outstanding degree requirements. Tuition is charged and paid at a student’s HOME College. However, material fees pertaining to a specific course(s) are paid at the HOST College.

Who is eligible to use the ePermit approval request system?

Matriculated students currently in attendance at a CUNY College (HOME College);

  • Matriculated students currently in attendance at a CUNY College (HOME College);
  • Undergraduate students with a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.00;
  • Graduate Students with a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 3.00;
  • Students cannot have any holds on their records;
  • Students must meet all HOME College registration requirements, such as residency and immunization;
  • Newly admitted and continuing Macaulay Honors College, ROTC and CUNY BA students with advisor approval.

Who is NOT eligible to use the ePermit approval request system?

  • A non-degree student
  • Newly admitted undergraduate or graduate students prior to completing their first term at the HOME College with the minimum GPA.

Kindly note that an ePermit does not automatically register a student for a course nor does issuance of an ePermit guarantee enrollment at the HOST College. Once you have enrolled at the HOST College, cancellation of an ePermit does not delete your course registration.
