CUNYfirst: Activate My CUNYfirst Account

By participating in College Now (CN), you are beginning to build your academic record at CUNY.  Students are required to activate their CUNYfirst account to view their grade(s) and unofficial transcript.  Grades will not be mailed or emailed and we cannot provide students or parents with grade results. Please Note: If you intend to attend John Jay College for undergraduate study, the grade you earn in the College Now program at John Jay College will be calculated in your GPA. In order to access CUNYfirst, users are required to activate or claim their account through the Identity Management System (IMS). Enter http://www2.cuny.edu/ in your browser’s address bar.

I Forgot My CUNYfirst Password

Once your CUNYfirst account is activated, you will receive a confirmation screen with your username and ID (EMPLID). Make note of your username and password and keep them in a safe place. You will need to update your password every 90 days. A reminder will be emailed to you at 85 days. You will not be able to re-use one of your four previous passwords. Your password cannot be changed for five days after you last changed your password. Your CUNYfirst username typically will be your first name and last name, with a dot in between the two names. Added to that would be the last two digits of your EMPLID. For example, John Smith would be john.smith12.

There are two kinds of transcripts: Student Copies and Official Copies. Student Copies are unofficial copies that the student can request for his or her own records. Official Copies are not given directly to students. They must be prepared and processed in the order received. Sealed Official transcripts mailed to students are stamped "Issued to Student".
