Important Information

Summer 2021 Session

Beginning Monday, March 8, students will be able to register for Summer Session 2021. Students will self-register via CUNYFirst. There is no specific student appointment time listed in CUNYFirst.

We will offer a "Senior Majors Only" Priority Period for required courses Psych 213W and Advanced Experimental. Priority is for Declared Psychology or Neuroscience Majors with Senior class standing (90-120+ credits, including credits in progress). Students in this category will be able to self-enroll via CUNYFirst.

Psych 213W will be open ONLY to SENIORS for the FIRST WEEK of Summer Enrollment (March 8- March 14).

Psych 213W will open for both JUNIOR AND SENIOR MAJORS starting on Monday, March 15th.

Advanced Experimental courses (Psych 311- Psych 321) will remain open ONLY to SENIORS until a TBA date in APRIL.

Due to popularity of our courses, getting into Psychology courses can be challenging. For this reason, we suggest three things:

(1) register via CUNYfirst, as early as you possibly can.
(2) if a course you want is closed, search for and seriously consider alternatives
(3) do not assume you can be overtallied into a closed course just because your graduation will be otherwise delayed.

All Registrations should be done by students via their CUNYFirst accounts. However, if you run into problems, we are here to help. For general assistance, email the virtual Psych Department at

To make a Registration Request (enrollment is not guaranteed), use the form provided here:

When placing requests, please respect the "Seniors only" priority registration period for 213W and Adv Exp which are intended to help ensure that graduating seniors get their final classes. Registration requests submitted by anyone but seniors during the senior only period will be summarily deleted without any response or acknowledgement.

Please do not register for multiple Advanced Experimental courses. We will check for double-registrations and when we find students registered for two AE courses, we will drop them from both without contacting them. You cannot ’save seats.’ The penalty for doing so is being dropped from both and put at the back of the queue.
