CUNY E-Permit Information

Obtain permission to take courses at another CUNY school 

The City University of New York allows students to file online for a CUNY permit.
  • In order to apply through e-Permit, you must make sure that you meet the eligibility requirements. See General Permit Information.
  • You must create a CUNY portal account before submitting an e-Permit application. To create an account, please log on to and click on "Log-in," located on the bottom left column of the site.

Note: Once you have created your account, you have to wait 24 hours to access the CUNY e-Permit log-in site.

Be Aware That
  • e-Permit applications will be accepted only during the registration period for the term in which you intend to take the course.
  • Retroactive permits will not be issued.
  • Submitting multiple e-Permit applications to take the same course at several CUNY schools during the same academic term is not allowed. You will be granted permission to take this course at only one CUNY school.
  • The grades earned for courses taken on e-Permit at a CUNY school will be posted to your record and calculated into your cumulative grade point average (G.P.A.) at Queens College. An approved e-Permit does not guarantee enrollment at the host college.
What To Expect During the e-Permit Application Process
  • Your e-Permit application requires three levels of approval from Queens College. As a result, we ask that you please allow the permit approvers adequate time to process your application.
  • You will receive an e-mail each time your application has been reviewed by a permit approver.
  • The host college will send you an e-mail with registration instructions once your e-Permit has been accepted and processed.
Student's Responsibilities
  • You must register for the approved permit course using the host college's registration system.
  • You must pay for the permit course at Queens College. Tuition and fees must be paid in accordance with the Bursar's Office Payment Due Dates schedule. For further information, please log on to the Bursar's web page at
  • Late registration and change of program fees, if incurred, must be paid to the host college as well as any material and transportation fees associated with your courses.
  • You are required to submit a separate e-Permit application for each course you intend to take. Do not register for a course that has not been approved by the Registrar's Office.
  • You must cancel the e-Permit application online if the course you wish to take on permit is closed.
