Register for Classes in Partnership Programs
Course Registration Information
Most partnership programs operate in a cohort model. This means that everyone in your program will take the same courses each semester throughout your program. Each semester your program advisor will send you information about which courses you will register for. In most cases there are specific courses and sections that are reserved for your partnership program. It is important that you register for these courses and sections.
Review Important Registration Deadlines
Review the registration deadlines prior to registering for classes. If you are responsible for paying your own tuition costs in your program, be sure to also review and adhere to the payment deadlines.

If you are returning from an approved Leave of Absence or did not take courses in the previous semester, then you must apply for readmission to Hunter College before you can register.
For support on enrollment appointments or readmission, please contact your program advisor.
Resolve Holds on your CUNYfirst account
A hold on your account will prohibit you from registering for a course. To inquire about a hold, go to the Student Center in the Self Service area of CUNYfirst and look under “holds” in the upper right corner. Select “details” to determine the office that placed the hold. To clear the hold, contact the office that issued the hold.

Reviewing Class Notes – Guide
If a course is in conflict with another course on your record, complete and submit the Course Conflict Override Form and obtain your instructor’s approvals.
You will register for one course and the second course, if approved, will be manually added to your record by the Registrar. If you are responsible for paying your own tuition costs in your program, you will be responsible for paying for the second course once it is added to your record. Failure to do so may result in the course being dropped from your record.
In some cases you may take a course at another institution such as the American Museum of Natural History. Your program advisor will inform you if this is the case.
If you are taking a course at another CUNY college you must obtain an E-Permit.
Remember to cancel your e-permit if you do not register for the course or if you drop the course.
If you are taking a course at a college or university outside of CUNY, you must obtain a paper permit.
To resolve registration issues after the registration and late registration periods have ended, submit the registration appeal request form. A request is considered when there are documented, compelling and unavoidable reasons to grant an exception to policies, procedures, and deadlines
There is no Registration Appeal period for the summer semester.
Registration Appeal Form
To resolve registration issues after the registration appeal period has ended, submit the School of Education Dean’s Request Form. Please note, a course deletion request requires extenuating circumstances and you must not have attended any class meetings.

Information on course withdrawal can be found on the Hunter College Student Affairs website.
Exemption or waiver of a course requirement may be granted to a student who has completed a course at another college with the same or similar content as a Hunter College course required in your program. You must contact your program advisor if you are interested in applying for an exemption or waiver. An exemption reduces the number of credits you need to take in your program. A waiver requires you to take an approved elective course of at least the same number of credits at Hunter to replace the waived course. Only matriculated students may be granted exemptions or waivers. All programs have limits on the number of credits from which students may be exempted or waived.
A Graduate Degree student who is not registered for any course(s) but is completing other degree requirements for graduation must complete the registration procedure by registering to maintain matriculation (for maintenance fee). A student must be on file for the semester in which they are planning to graduate. If you have been out of attendance for one semester or more, you must file for readmission to Hunter College. Students may not register for other course work during the semester in which they maintain matriculation.
