What is CUNYfirst?

CUNYfirst stands for Fully Integrated Resources and Services Tool. These processes are streamlining and standardizing how everyday things are done throughout the University, from registering for classes to paying our bills. With new and updated applications being implemented in phases to replace aging legacy systems, the entire project will establish CUNY processes well into the future.
