Thursday, March 9: Check Your DegreeWorks Degree Audit — learn which courses you still need to take to graduate
Log into DegreeWorks and take notes on what you still need to complete your degree. Starting at the top of your screen with the DEGREE area, write down the answers to these questions and keep them handy for tomorrow's activity:
Friday, March 10: Fill in Your Academic Career Planner — plan your semester-by-semester path to graduation
The Academic Career Planner is a tool to help you visualize what classes you will take over time in order to complete your degree. If you have already started one, this is a good time to review the next two semesters to see if you want or need to make any changes to your plans.
Monday, March 13: Prepare to Meet with Your Advisor — prepare questions about ways to get involved, to prepare for your career, or address any challenges
After your first semester at City Tech, you switch from having a STAR Center advisor to consulting with a faculty advisor in your department.
If you are in ACE, ASAP, EDGE, or SEEK, you should speak to your advisor there about your schedule, but you can also benefit from talking to a faculty advisor in your department about things specific to your major and careers in your field.
You can find a list of departments and how to contact faculty advisors on the advising site.
Tuesday, March 14: Check Your Holds — make sure you are able to register
To see your holds, log in to CUNYfirst and look at your Student Center. In the upper right-hand corner, you will see the holds area.
Pay special attention to these areas:
Wednesday, March 15: Find Your Registration Appointment and Set Reminders — make sure you know when to register to get the schedule and classes you want
Today is the day the registrar's office releases registration appointment times for summer and fall 2023. Your appointment represents the first moment you will be able to register for summer and fall classes.
While you will continue to have access to register for new classes and change your selections until the end of add/drop each semester, it's best to register right away to make sure that you get the best class sections, days, and times for you before they fill up.
Log into CUNYfirst and look at your Student Center. Choose the “Course Planning and Enrollment Dates” tile, and then select “Enrollment Dates” to view your appointment.
Set up calendar reminders for yourself for:
