Taking a Course on Epermit at Another Campus

Instructions for filing a permit can be found here: https://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/web/about/administration/enrollment/registrar/e-permits.php

Steps for Taking a Course at Another CUNY Campus:
1. Use Transfer Explorer to find the BC equivalency for the course.
2. File the permit on CUNYfirst.
3. Once your permit has been approved and entered in the system at the host campus, you will receive a registration appointment date from the host campus. You will then be able to register for the class.
4. If you’re studying abroad, check with the Study Abroad Office at the host campus to determine whether you will be registered by their office or not.

Steps for Taking a Macaulay Central class:
1. Pre-register for the course you are interested in.
2. Once you are notified that you’ve been granted a seat in the course, let your advisor know so they can release your HON hold and advise you about the equivalency.
3. File the permit
4. When the permit is approved by the BC Registrar, you will be registered for the class by the Macaulay Registrar. You don’t have to register yourself for the class.
5. If you change your mind, you’ll need to be dropped from the MHC course and then you’ll be able to cancel the permit in CUNYfirst.
