Registration Categories


New Students

Prior to registration, all new students must demonstrate basic skills proficiency by taking the CUNY Placement Tests in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. The Testing Center notifies students by mail when these tests (given several times during late fall, spring, and summer semesters) are scheduled.

For more information about these tests, refer to the “Academic Requirements, Regulations and Policies” section of this Catalog.

The Enrollment Office notifies new or First-Time Freshmen students of orientation and registration by mail or email. Academic Advisement counselors are present during orientation and registration to assist students with the appropriate selection of courses based on students’ individual academic background and Basic Skills Placement Test scores.

Readmit Students

Students who are in good academic standing can apply for readmis- sion during select times. Students seeking readmission must visit the Admissions Office to inquire about the final dates to file readmission applications for the upcoming semester. In order to be readmitted, students are mandated to settle any outstanding debts.

Transfer Students

Students entering the College on an advanced standing basis and whose advanced standing credits have been evaluated are notified when to register for classes upon posting of credit evaluation in CUNYfirst.

Continuing Students

Registration for continuing students is ongoing via CUNYFirst during the registration period. Continuing students may have a “Stop” placed on their records; therefore, delays in registration are probable. Students should check CUNYFirst for the status of their records.

Academic Review & Appeal Committee

The Academic Review & Appeal Committee (ARAC) at Medgar Evers College is tasked with the review and deliberation of all student petitions for reinstatement to the College, who are not in good academic standing and subsequently are ineligible to continue with their academic degree pursuits at MEC. In order to promote a thorough and holistic evaluation of all student petitions, ARAC is comprised of faculty members representing each of our academic schools, staff members from each academic advising unit, as well as the Financial Aid, Admissions and Registrar offices. The Committee meets at least twice during the fall and spring semesters.

All student petitions for reinstatement and supporting documentation must be submitted as hard copies to the designated offices below: ASAP Students (718) 804-8206 S-204

SEEK Students (718) 270-4970  S-205

Students under 30 credits

(718) 270-4960 S-220

Students with 30+ credits

(718) 270-5170 S-220

Any issues or concerns regarding the petition for reinstatement process may be directed to the attention of the ARAC Chair Kirt Robinson, located in the Academic Advising Center, email: ARAC@ mec.cuny.edu.
