What is ePermit? Top
Epermit has changed! In Winter 2016 ePermit was integrated into CUNYfirst where students will apply for outgoing ePermits via the Student Center at their home college by filling out an online application. The CUNYfirst ePermit process will allow students to request permission from their home college to take some classes at other CUNY colleges.
- 'Home college' is the college in which students are matriculated.
- 'Host college' is the college in which students would like to take/attend classes and have credits transfer back to their home college.
Once ePermits are successfully submitted, students must wait for the home college to review the requests. If the home college gives permission, then the host college will review the requests on their end. Upon review and approval from both the home and host colleges, then students may try to enroll into the approved host courses through their Student Center on CUNYfirst.
* IMPORTANT * * IMPORTANT *
Submitting ePermit applications starts off the process for review. Students who apply for ePermits are taking a chance. Seats are not guaranteed/saved at Baruch College, nor at any CUNY host colleges. Please note that submitting ePermits does not guarantee approval permission, and approval permission does not guarantee seats/enrollment into the approved courses.
Prior to taking courses at other CUNY colleges, students should inquire at the host college for enrollment dates assigned to incoming ePermit students, prerequisites for the host college courses, and procedures governing CUNY students on ePermit.
Most, if not all, CUNY colleges have a designated webpage with comprehensive ePermit information on their website. The easiest way to find these webpages is to do a Google search. E.g. ‘Baruch College ePermit’ ‘Brooklyn College ePermit’
What are the eligibility requirements to apply for an ePermit? Top
1. Students must currently be matriculated at Baruch College, which means you are a degree-seeking student at Baruch College. (Visiting students and Non-Degree students are ineligible to apply for ePermit.)
2. Undergraduate students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher on their Baruch College official transcript, and not on Academic Probation.
3. Graduate Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher on their Baruch College official transcript, and not on Academic Probation.
4. Students must have no negative holds that impact enrollment activity on their records. (E.g. Advisement, Library, Bursar, Dean of Student, Financial Aid Exit Interview holds, etc.) Any such holds with a start date in the future will still affect your eligibility to apply for an ePermit.
Please note: ‘APS’ is not a negative hold, and it does not have any impacts.
5. Students must meet all Baruch College registration requirements, such as residency and immunization.
6. All prerequisites must be completed prior to submitting ePermit requests. Please check the desired course's Enrollment Requirements (prerequisites and co-requisites) at both Baruch College and the host college before applying. Requirements for the Baruch equivalent home courses are checked manually by our unit. If parts or all of the course's requirements have not been met, the ePermits will be denied.
7. Epermits will not be considered for 1st semester new students, Undergraduate and Graduate, except Macaulay Honors College, ROTC and CUNY-BA (Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies) students.
• First semester new students have to take classes at Baruch College and wait for all grades to post at Baruch in order to apply for ePermits for subsequent terms. The ePermit system should become available provided all the above requirements are met.
These students will still need to adhere to ePermit application deadlines. Deadlines will not be extended for reasons of not having all grades posted in time to submit ePermits for review.
• First semester transfer students, please email email@example.com to inquire.
Where do I find the ePermit application deadlines? Top
• Baruch College ‘Office of the Registrar’ homepage
• ‘REGISTRATION’ drop down tab
• ‘APPLICATION, REGISTRATION, AND PAYMENT’
• Click on the link for the deadlines of the relevant terms.
• If you have a "negative service indicator" on your record that impacts enrollment activities, you must clear it with the office that placed the hold before you can apply for ePermits.
(E.g. Advisement, Library, Bursar, Dean of Student, Financial Aid Exit Interview holds, etc.)
• Any aforementioned holds with a future start date will still affect your eligibility to apply for ePermits. After ePermits are initiated, the requests may be denied due to a negative hold being placed on your account.
Please note: ‘APS’ or ‘Academic Plan Status’ is not a negative hold and has no impact on enrollment.
How many credits can I take on ePermit? Top
Students may take a combination of ePermit courses and Baruch courses up to the following credit limits per term or session.
• Fall term: 18 credits
• Winter session: 7 credits
• Spring term: 18 credits
• Summer: Two courses (up to 8 credits) per session. Ten-week Session 3 counts as one Session 1 & one Session 2.
• Please be reminded, students must take at least 60% of their major courses at Baruch College. There will be no exceptions.
Where can I look up course equivalency between Baruch College and other CUNY host
• Epermit course equivalency is based on established CUNY Transfer Rules evaluated by the home college.
• Use the following link from the Transfer Office’s course equivalency website to look up course equivalency from another CUNY college transferring in to Baruch College. http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/transfer/schools/cuny/index.html
• Select the preferred host college from the drop down menu. Wait for the ‘Search Courses:’ box to load. Type in the host course or home course to search for equivalency between Baruch College and the selected CUNY host college.
When can I file for ePermits and how long does it take to process? Top
We start reviewing ePermit requests after registration starts for the term that corresponds to the ePermit requests. It is of utmost importance to submit ePermit forms after your initial Baruch College enrollment date/time for the term corresponding to the ePermit requests. If you submit ePermits prior to your enrollment date/time, we will deny them.
• Steps to find your enrollment date/time.
- STUDENT CENTER
- ENROLLMENT DATES
- DESIRED TERM@ DESIRED COLLEGE
Epermits will be reviewed in the order of receipt, in approximately 10 business days. (Holiday/weather-related closings and weekends excluded.) To be fair to all applicants, submitted ePermits will wait in queue to be reviewed and will not be expedited. During busy times we ask for your patience and cooperation as we manage all aspects of ePermit processes and responding to student's inquiries/questions.
Please note, the processing time at the host college is not within our control and differs from college to college. All colleges require ample time to process ePermit requests.
• In-progress ePermit courses cannot be used to satisfy pre-requisite requirements for registration into courses in the next sequence.
• In-progress ePermit courses cannot be used to satisfy pre-requisite requirements for ePermit permission for courses in the next sequence.
How do I check the status of my submitted ePermits? Top
Baruch College students should check the status of submitted out-going ePermits on CUNYfirst regularly. Baruch College does not send out emails regarding status updates.
Once submitted, you can check the status by following steps indicated below.
1) Login to your CUNYfirst.
2) Click ‘Student Center’.
3) Select the ePermit option in the drop down menu. Click the double arrow to go.
4) Search Epermit.
5) Choose the desired term @ Baruch College.
6) Select the desired ePermit form by clicking on the radio button associated with that request.
7) Click Continue.
8) Scroll down to see details / comments for the ePermit.
The e-Registrar Comments field can be expanded by dragging on the lower right corner of the box or by using the up/down arrows. View/Hide Comments in the lower part of the page may have additional comments.
If you are unsure of the status of any submitted ePermit requests, please check via your CUNYfirst account first. If there is an issue viewing the information in your account, you may contact our unit at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
- Please use your official Baruch student email, and provide your full name and Empl. ID (8 digit CUNYfirst number) in the 'Subject' of the email. Please make sure to indicate what term/session, host college and host course you are inquiring about.
If the status of an ePermit form is ‘APPROVED', it is only showing approval from Baruch College. It is not an indication that the host college has approved your request on their end.
The ePermit form indicates ‘APPROVED’ by Baruch College. What should I expect now? Top
Prior to taking courses at another college, students should inquire at the host college for registration dates and procedures governing ePermit students. You still have to meet the prerequisites and/or co-requisites for the courses being offered at the host colleges. The requests will have to be reviewed by the host colleges before you may/may not try to enroll into the host courses. It is not instantaneous.
• Once an ePermit is approved by Baruch College, the status in the ePermit form will change to ‘APPROVED’. Then, a "PERM" or “CUNBA” code will be put in the student's Baruch College term schedule. This placeholder code represents the number of credits that will be attempted at the host colleges for approved courses, and to trigger tuition.
Note: Students cannot drop this code on their own. It is a placeholder put in to your Baruch schedule while you attempt the host college courses. However, it does count toward the credit load limit for the session/term.
• Afterwards, you have to wait for the host colleges to review your ePermits on their end. Upon approval by the host college, an appropriate term and enrollment date/time will be assigned to your CUNYFirst. Make sure to check the enrollment date/time assigned by the respective host college. Most, if not all, host colleges will inform students of a decision via email.
How to find your enrollment date and time? Top
CUNYFIRST > STUDENT CENTER > ENROLLMENT DATES > DETAILS > DESIRED TERM@ DESIRED COLLEGE > CONTINUE.
• Some colleges might require students to go in person to register for their approved courses, while majority of colleges will allow students to register through their own CUNYfirst accounts. Typically, a student who has approval from Baruch College and the host college should see a corresponding term and enrollment date/time associated with the host college.
• Lastly, when your enrollment date/time becomes active at the host college, you may try to enroll into the approved host college courses using your CUNYfirst account.
Student Center > Enroll > Choose desired term at desired host college > add course to Shopping Cart >> Checkout completely until you see a confirmation you have successfully enrolled into the class/section.
Please confirm the ‘Status’ of the courses in your schedule for the host college. Make sure you know you are enrolled or have wait-listed for the host courses. Appointment, prerequisite, credit limit, and registration issues at the host colleges should be follow up with the host colleges because Baruch College does not have access to update/override another college's system.
Please note: Any courses taken outside of Baruch College, without prior approval from Baruch College Registrar’s Office, will not transfer back. It is the student's responsibility to make sure that the host courses you are going to attempt are pre-approved by Baruch College and the host colleges as indicated specifically in the approved ePermit request forms. Epermit approvals are non-transferrable.
Can I register for courses that I did not submit ePermits for? Top
Epermit requests are specific to what is indicated in the application, and are non-transferrable. They are not general requests to take any courses at any colleges. Epermit approvals cannot be 'saved/applied' to a different term or class. If you need to make changes after approval is given, please email us to cancel approved ePermit requests and submit new ePermits with the desired new session/term, college, or courses. These new ePermits will only be considered if they are submitted by the ePermit submission deadline.
Please note: All approved, denied, or cancelled ePermits should have details / comments. Please navigate into the ePermit form and scroll down to see details / comments. Do not assume you received approval for an ePermit. You can go back and check the status / details of submitted ePermits up until the end of the applicable term.
How is tuition calculated? Where do I pay for my approved ePermit courses? Top
All tuition and fees for ePermits are charged by and paid to the student's home college. Tuition is calculated based on the number of credit units (not credit hours) assigned to the host courses by the host colleges. Any additional fees pertaining to the specific courses are paid to the host college (E.g. material fees or late registration fees).
• 'PERM / CUNBA' place-holder codes are added to class schedules at the time Baruch College approves ePermits in order to trigger tuition, not after students successfully enroll into approved host courses.
Epermit requests to attend community colleges will not generate less tuition per credit unit.
• In the event that students do not successfully enroll into approved ePermit courses at the host college, or if students drop host courses before the start of the session/term, ePermit tuition may be refunded from your account. You must email us to cancel all unwanted approved ePermits.
• If you no longer want to use approved ePermits, email your home college’s ePermit unit so your account can be reviewed and then adjusted accordingly. This can ensure a timely review and adjustment to your account for tuition liability / financial aid purposes prior to the start of the term. Rest assured, if you do not have tuition liability to the host college, the ePermit tuition charges can be removed.
• If students enrolled into any host courses, they must drop them via their student account before the first date of the session/term to not be liable for ePermit course tuition. Baruch College does not have the access to drop students from host courses. Students must log into their CUNYfirst account and drop all courses that they will not take.
• Host courses dropped on or after the first date of the session/term will have tuition liability in accordance to the host college’s tuition refund calendar (liability schedule). Make sure to familiarize yourself with the academic calendars (tuition refund/liability) at the home college and the preferred host colleges.
Will Financial Aid cover ePermit courses? Top
Students eligible for financial aid are to apply through their home college and are responsible for meeting any and all academic course and credit load requirements.
Please note, if you are a recipient of financial aid, especially TAP, you are required to take courses that can be applied toward your degree. TAP funds can only be applied toward classes that meet your degree requirements. Please see an Academic Advisor to make sure any ePermit courses you are interested in are required for your degree.
• NYS Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) require students to take at least 12 credits that count toward their stated degree in order to qualify for full-time TAP.
• Please visit the Registrar's website for more information regarding TAP Course Compliance. http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/registrar/tap-course-compliance.html
• Students who have approved ePermits will be manually reviewed by the TAP Compliance unit for eligibility because DegreeWorks and FACTS (at Baruch College) will not recognize ePermit approvals and enrolled host courses as meeting/not meeting the requirements for Financial Aid - TAP. The TAP Compliance unit might reach out to you via email to submit a TAP Compliance form for review.
Please visit the Financial Aid's website for more information regarding eligibility for Financial Aid. https://www.baruch.cuny.edu/financialaid/index.htm
How do I cancel ePermits: Initiated, Pending, and Approved? Top
• If you need to cancel approved ePermits, please do so before the start of the session / term (E.g. Winter session and Summer sessions, Fall and Spring terms). We need ample time to process requests, please email us before the session / term starts. Instructions are outlined below. • If you no longer want to take courses at any college (Baruch College included), please make certain to drop them via your CUNYfirst account, and that the courses are dropped successfully. If permission is needed to drop a host course, please contact the appropriate office at the host college to have that reconciled. Please do not rely on system cancellation or system drop processes to remove you from courses you no longer wish to take.
• If the status of the ePermit is *APPROVED*, you must send us an email. Information is indicated below. Please send the email from your official Baruch student email.
If enrolled in any host college courses, you must drop them on your own before the start of the session / term to avoid tuition liability. We do not have the access to drop your host courses (enrolled or waitlisted), and courses are not automatically dropped from your account.
It is necessary to send an email to email@example.com to confirm your request to cancel ‘Approved’ ePermits. We aim to process it within 5 business days. If there are issues, we will reply to your email to inform you.
If you need to cancel multiple approved ePermits, please send one email with the ePermit information for each one that you would like to cancel.
I would like to officially cancel the approved ePermit(s) indicated below.
Empl.ID number (CUNYfirst 8 digits):
(#1) Term/Session of ePermit:
(#1) Host college (not Baruch College):
(#1) Host college course (not the Baruch course):
(#2) Term/Session of ePermit:
(#2) Host college (not Baruch College):
(#2) Host college course (not the Baruch course):
After a cancellation is fully completed, the ePermit is no longer valid and the status associated with the ePermit will become ‘Cancelled’. Currently, all denied/cancelled ePermits cannot be reactivated. Please cancel with caution.
If the ePermit is*Initiated* or *Pending Committee Approval*, you must click the ‘cancel’ button in each ePermit that you want to cancel.
All *Initiated* and *Pending Committee Approval* ePermits that you no longer want to be considered have to be cancelled. If you do not cancel all unwanted ePermits we will proceed to review the submitted ePermit forms. If there are no issues, the ePermits will be approved and tuition will be charged to your account.
How to find the 'Cancel' button.
> Login to your CUNYfirst.
> Click ‘Student Center’.
> Academics tab: Drop down menu
> Select ‘ePermit’.
> "Search ePermit"
> Select desired term @ Baruch College.
> Click on the radio button at the far left side of the desired ePermit.
> Scroll down to see details and comments for the ePermit. (The ‘Comments’ field can be expanded by dragging the lower right corner of the box or use the up/down arrows.) (“View/Hide Comments” in the lower part of the page.)
> Click ‘Cancel’.
- *Initiated* ePermits will instantaneously update to show *Cancelled*.
- *Pending Committee Approval* ePermits will not update instantaneously, but you should not see the ‘cancel’ button anymore. There will no longer be an option on our end to approve the ePermit. At this point, we only have the ‘cancel’ option. It will update to show *Cancelled* once we get to that ePermit and click the cancel button on our end.
When do I get the grades and credits transfer back to Baruch College? Top
• Grades & credits of approved ePermit courses will be transferred and posted to the student’s record and included in their cumulative GPA in accordance to what was approved. Approximately 3 days after the last final exam date at Baruch College a job will be run to retrieve all ePermit grades collectively. Grades are posted manually and takes approximately 10 business days to be reflected in CUNYfirst.
• Once ePermit grades and credits are posted, the information is located in the following places.
- ‘Other Credits’ section at the end of your Unofficial Transcript
- CUNYfirst > Student Center > My Course History.
- The grade will not post to the ‘PERM code’ except for ‘W’ grades. Grades will be attached to the approved Home Course.
- After grades are posted on CUNYfirst, DegreeWorks will update with the newly posted ePermit courses in 3 - 4 days.
Please note, if students take non-approved courses, the grades and credits will not transfer back to their Baruch College record. Furthermore, ePermit tuition will not be refunded.
* IMPORTANT * It is not recommended to go out on ePermit, non-CUNY permit, or study abroad during your final term. If issues arise in posting these grades, it may jeopardize your graduation.
• A grade posted or a change of grade at the host colleges will not update immediately at Baruch College. For all approved grade changes at the host college, students must notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may adjust your record at Baruch College accordingly.
The number of credit units transferred for each course will be the value assigned by the host college and not the home college.
(E.g. #1 Home course = 3 cr., equivalent Host course = 4 cr.; upon transferring back to Baruch College, 3 cr. will be attached to the home course, and remaining 1 cr. will be elective credit.
E.g. #2 Home course = 4 cr., equivalent Host course = 3 cr.; upon transferring back to Baruch College, only 3 cr. will be attached to the home course.)
What issues might result in my ePermits to be denied? Top
1. *Home Course* is required (if there is one available), but is missing on the ePermit form.
The Home Course field is located under TERM on the left hand side of the ePermit form. Make sure home course and host course are equivalent by looking up the courses using the website noted below.
CUNY Baccalaureate students are not required to include a Baruch home course in the ePermit form. (CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies program)
• Please note, course equivalency is evaluated by the relevant offices in the home college. Please check course equivalency using the site provided below.
• Transfer Services for Course Equivalency
http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/transfer/schools/cuny/index.html (Subject to changes.)
2. Credit load issue for the applicable session or term.
• Students can take a combination of ePermit courses and Baruch courses up to the following credit limits per term and/or session:
FALL term: 18 credits
WINTER session (session within Spring Term): 7 credits
SPRING term: 18 credits
SUMMER: Two courses (up to 8 credits) per session.
Ten-week Session 3 counts as one Session 1 and one Session 2.
• If ePermit courses will place your schedule above the maximum credit load limit, students have to adjust their schedule to accommodate for the ePermit courses, or they'll be denied. This should be done before submitting ePermits. Students cannot use ePermit approvals to swap out already enrolled courses at Baruch College. The 'Swap' option cannot be used across different colleges. Permission and seats are not guaranteed, students should drop courses with extra discretion.
• Please note, each and every ePermit approval will take up 'space' in your schedule.
[4 Baruch courses at 3 credits each + 1 ePermit at 3 credits (PERM-3) = 15 credits.]
[4 Baruch courses at 3 credits each + 1 ePermit at 4 credits (PERM-4) = 16 credits.]
[4 Baruch courses at 3 credits each + 2 ePermits at 3 credits each (PERM-6) = 18 credits.]
3. You occupied a seat in the Baruch home course.
• Duplicate registration is not permitted. We will not consider your ePermit requests if you have successfully occupied a seat in the Baruch College course you are requesting to take on ePermit.
• You will have to drop the course at Baruch College first. Seats are not guaranteed at any college. If you drop courses, it'll be at your own discretion. Please note, permission does not guarantee enrollment in the host college.
• If you’re still eligible, then approval will be granted after you drop the course from your Baruch schedule. If this is not something you are willing to do, it is highly recommended to take the course at Baruch College.
4. You attempted the course at Baruch College and earned a failing grade.
• The F-replacement Policy does not apply to courses taken on ePermit. If you want a failing grade to be replaced, you have to retake the failed course at the home college.
• Read more information about ‘Repeating Failed Courses’ here. http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/bulletin/
• If you do not care for the failing grade to be replaced, you need to submit a correct ePermit request and indicate in the comments box the following statement.
“I understand this ePermit will not replace the failing grade from a previous attempt for this home course at Baruch College. The failing grade will remain in my record and will also be calculated with my cumulative GPA.”
• Please note, if you fail a course on ePermit at a host college, and you wish to retake it, the F-replace policy does not apply in such a situation. The F-replace policy only applies when a course taken at the home college, earns a failing grade, and is attempted again at the home college and earns a C or better.
5. The ‘Permit Type’ in the ePermit form is selected incorrectly.
• For students who are not in the CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies program, please do not select the Permit Type 'CUNY Baccalaureate'.
• If you are not trying to study abroad, please do not select the Permit Type 'Study Abroad'.
• Anything else will suffice.
6. Epermit requests for MTH 2205 or MTH 2207.
• Currently, there are no equivalent courses at other colleges to transfer back as MTH 2205 or MTH 2207. Please do not request ePermits for these two courses. Such requests will be denied. The only options available are MTH 2610 and MTH 2206 at some colleges.
MTH 2610 Enrollment Requirements:
Requires placement into MTH 2610 or have completed MTH 2001, MTH 2003, or equivalent with a grade of 'B' or better.
MTH 2206 Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisite: A grade of ‘C or better’ in MTH 2001, 2004, 2005, 2300, or 2301 or equivalent.
If successfully completed on an approved ePermit, MTH 2206 can be used to fulfill the pre-business Calculus requirement.
“Calculus—MTH 2205/2207/2610 (or equivalent)”
7. The Baruch home course has already been attempted three times.
• Epermits will not be issued for courses that have been repeated three times at Baruch College, nor for which have transferred in to Baruch College (such as on ePermits) totaling to three attempts.
• 3-Repeat Policy >> http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/registrar/students/three-repeatpolicy.html
8. The Baruch home course has earned a passing grade, INC grade, or attempted with no grade posted.
• Requests for courses that have earned a passing grade or an unresolved grade of INC will not be considered and/or approved.
Requests for courses that have earned passing grades of ‘A’ to ‘D’ will not be reviewed and/or approved. Such courses cannot be repeated.
This policy also applies to an ‘INC’ grade assigned to a pre-requisite for the course you want to take on ePermit.
All prerequisites must be completed and passed prior to submitting ePermit requests.
9. Epermit requests to take Capstone courses.
• All Capstone courses must be taken at Baruch College.
• http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/genedreqs/commoncoreatbaruch/tier3.htm (Subject to changes.)
10. Epermit forms have more than one host college and/or host course.
• Each ePermit form should have only one Baruch home course, one host college, and one equivalent host course. [CUNY-BA students do not need to provide a Baruch home course in the form.]
• When multiple ePermits are submitted for the same Baruch home course, only one request will be considered for approval. Such ePermits will be reviewed in the order that they were submitted. If no issues arise, the first of these ePermits will be approved and the remaining similar requests will be denied.
11. You selected/submitted the wrong term /session in the ePermit form.
• The Winter session is part of the ‘Spring Term’ for colleges with 15-week calendars.
• Please select the Spring term @ Baruch College in the first step of the ePermit application process. Then, in the ePermit form navigate to and select ‘Winter’ for the ‘Host session’.
• Colleges that do not follow the 15-week calendar are KCC, LgCC, and Guttman CC.
[Kingsborough Community College, LaGuardia Community College, and Guttman Community College]
See the next informational tab for more details. (How do I apply for the Winter or Summer sessions to Kingsborough Community College, LaGuardia Community College, or Guttman Community College?)
• To apply for Winter session at Kingsborough CC, LaGuardia CC, and Guttman CC only, use the Baruch College Fall term form.
Fall term Session I, at these 3 colleges, corresponds to Baruch College’s Fall term.
Fall term Session II, at these 3 colleges, corresponds to the Winter Session at Baruch College, but it will end later (around the middle of February).
Select >> Host Term: Fall term, Host Session: 2
• To apply for Summer session at Kingsborough CC, LaGuardia CC, and Guttman CC only, use the Baruch College Spring term form.
Spring term Session I, at these 3 colleges, corresponds to Spring term at Baruch College, but it will start and end later (from March to June).
Spring term Session II, at these 3 colleges, corresponds to Baruch College’s Summer term.
Select >> Host Term: Spring term, Host Session: 2
• With that being said, if you applied for graduation for the Spring term and you want to take ePermit courses at one of the aforementioned community colleges in the same term, you will be denied graduation for the said term.
You must officially complete the remaining courses by the end of May to be considered for Spring term graduation. Since the aforementioned college's Spring term session ends in the middle of June, the requirement for graduation would not met.
How do I indicate which Summer session I want to attempt in the ePermit form? Top
• 'Schedule of Classes'>> http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/registrar/schedule/index.htm
Please navigate to the 'Schedule of Classes' to view offered course sections from the host college you are interested in. Choose the desired host college and the appropriate term in the drop down menus. Then, put in the information for the host course to see if it will be offered and what open sections are available.
• Locate the summer session in the course you want to attempt and select the corresponding session in the 'Host Session' field in the ePermit form.
I will attempt to take a course on ePermit to fulfill pre-requisite requirements. Why am I unable to register for courses in the next sequence? Top
• You may take pre-requisite courses on ePermit. However, Baruch College's system will not recognize that you are attempting these courses to temporarily allow you to enroll for courses in the next sequence. The different CUNY college's systems are not interconnected in that way.
• In general, ePermit course grades will have to be officially posted to your Baruch record (transcript) in order to enroll for courses in the next sequence or to further request ePermits for courses in the next sequence.
• In addition, the ‘Swap’ option in the enrollment screen does not work between two colleges. You may only swap classes within Baruch College, or within another host college.
* IMPORTANT * * IMPORTANT *
When you successfully enrolled for courses in the next sequence along with the pre-requisite at Baruch College and then decides to drop the pre-requisite and take it on ePermit, it is highly possible that the courses in the next sequence will be dropped from your schedule before the term begins.
Please be advised, if you decide to take a pre-requisite courses on ePermit, the courses cannot be used to satisfy pre-requisite requirements for registration until a passing grade is posted to your Baruch College record. Seats are not guaranteed or saved at any college, therefore this is a risk you will take on at your own discretion.
The email address in my ePermit form is not my preferred Baruch College email. What do I do? Top
• It is important that your CUNYfirst account has the correct Baruch email address on file and is set as the preferred campus account. If not, please indicate your official Baruch email in the Comments section in the ePermit form in case we need to contact you about the submitted requests. You can only write comments before submitting the ePermit forms.
• Please check your Baruch email regularly for important and time sensitive communication from Baruch College. Check both the 'INBOX' and 'JUNK MAIL’ or ‘SPAM’ folders.
• You can reach the Baruch ePermit unit via email at email@example.com . Please only email the unit using your official Baruch student email and always include your full name and Empl. ID number in the ‘Subject’ line.
Write a clear and concise email explaining any ePermit related issues and/or questions you might have. It is encouraged to attach clear screen captures or images of your issues/questions for our reference.
• We will review and respond in approximately 3 business days. (Holiday/weather-related closings and weekends excluded.) During busy times we ask for your patience and cooperation as we manage all aspects of ePermit processes and responding to student's inquiries/questions.
What if I want to take a course outside of CUNY? Top
• You may take courses at a Non-CUNY college. Please note, non-CUNY permits are not permissible to any community colleges, regardless if it is a SUNY or private institution.
• To apply, please fill out an Outgoing Non-CUNY Permit Application to be reviewed for permission.
• Download an Outgoing Non-CUNY Permit Application or pick one up at the Office of the Registrar.
“Registration Applications” > “Outgoing Non-CUNY Permit”
• Make sure to read the entire application on Page 1 and the ‘Requirements’ on Page 2 carefully.
Requirement number 2 indicates you must bring the completed application to the respective Department Chairperson in order to have him/her evaluate a Baruch equivalence and sign the form. Course description (course syllabus from the host college) must be included at the time you bring the application to the Department Chairperson for review.
• Completed and signed forms submitted to the Registrar’s Office will take 3 - 5 business days to process. Students will be notified via their Baruch email to come pick up the approved document at the Registrar’s Office. You will be notified via email if issues arise with the request.
