The first colleges to implement CUNYfirst student applications will be Queens College and Queensborough Community College – known as our Vanguard Colleges as they will be the first to launch these systems and will serve as a testing ground for other campus.

To support users in performing duties like registering for classes or advising students or college professionals from running reports, we have created support documents that will allow our Students and Faculty to understand how to work in the CUNYfirst System.
