  1. No self service option is shown once I log in. I am taken to a page where it say cuny fist alerts and notices and talks about credit card payments and notices. It use to be so easy to register for classes before with cuny.edu now this overly complicated system certain schools have forced upon students is ridiculous. I’ve been trying to register for over an hour. A bunch of other CUNY schools aren’t making you do all of this just to register for classes smh

  2. also that link you posted takes me to queens college not the cunyfirst page. If someone can help I would appreciate it. I know several other people experiencing the same problem
