Procedures for CUNY Students to File an e-Permit Request

The City University of New York has put in place an e-Permit system designed to help students find, get approval for, and register for courses at other CUNY colleges. Faculty advisors at the student's home college must approve request to take a course on permit at another CUNY college. Through e-Permit, students can file an online request and it will be processed online. Students are kept informed of the progress of their permit request throughout the approval process. If a request is rejected, a student will be notified electronically of the reason for the disapproval. To access e-Permit, students should go to the CUNY homepage (http://www.cuny.edu) and click the "Log In" button at the left. Once on the University homepage, students initially will have to register for a Portal ID and Password, by clicking on "Register" and following the directions. Once registered and logged in, students will find themselves on their own "My Page," that has a link to the e-Permit system prominently displayed.

Grades for courses taken on permit at another CUNY college are posted to students' records and are counted in the computation of a student's GPA (effective, Fall 2004).

Note: Students receiving a failing grade (WU, F) under no circumstances will benefit from the F-grade policy.

Through the e-Permit website, students can find listing and descriptions of courses at all CUNY colleges. The CUNY online schedule of classes, accessible through the e-Permit site, enables students to easily determine whether a selected course is being offered in that semester, whether it fits into the student's schedule, and whether seats are still available. Students are encouraged to use the e-Permit application by login on to www.cuny.edu.
