Important Changes Ahead at CUNY BA

**UPDATED 4/6/18- Banner is now down and Advisement Reports no longer accessible. We’ll share an update when access to CUNY BA records is available in CUNYfirst! If you have any questions about requirements, please reach out to your academic advisor.**


Dear CUNY BA Students,

We want to make you aware of some very important changes coming to CUNY BA in the next month and to explain how they will impact you.

The CUNY Graduate Center, including CUNY BA and other entities, will be transitioning from Banner to CUNYfirst in April. Banner will go dark forever on April 5th. After that, you will no longer have access to your CUNY BA Student Advisement Report (unofficial transcript). We suggest that you access it now and print to PDF and save the file.

In order to prepare for this transition, our office will be closed for business on April 4th- 6th.

If you anticipate needing a transcript (student or official copy) please place your request no later than April 4th. Requests received after April 4th will be held until CUNYfirst comes up for administrative purposes on Monday, April 16th. At that point, our registrar’s office will begin processing transcript as soon as possible. Complete instructions on how to pay for and request a transcript are available here.

We are not yet certain what sort of advising capacity we will have the weeks of April 9th and 16th, so we ask that you plan ahead and contact your advisors now. If you’ve been receiving reminders to schedule a graduation audit by a certain date or have been informed that you are due for one, please schedule immediately.

We will update you with more information on what to expect as we learn more about this transition.

Thank you,

The CUNY BA Staff
