Fall 2016 Registration Workshop

registration-flyerHi all,

I hope all of your classes are going well!
I am pleased to inform you that there are Registration Workshops being held this month (November). I suggest that you make great use of them if you need help with registering for classes next semester. As most students, especially freshmen, tend to have some degree of difficulty navigating the CUNY First system.
For those who may be in the Communication major, or any other major with strict times for advisement, I would highly encourage you to meet with your Major Department to see what classes you need to register for prior to the actual workshop to make the registration process easier.
Please feel Free to comment on the day you’re interested in attending Or I will pass in class next week to ask you.
