CUNY Portal

  • A portal, on the internet, can be best described as a gateway. A place where you can find information about a particular subject or a starting place for more general information.

  • The CUNY portal is a gateway to all things CUNY: college websites, information about applying to CUNY, registering for classes, events, campus directories, etc. While most of this information was previously available, the CUNY portal makes it easier and faster to find what you need. And if you register on the portal, the ability to customize your view will make future visits to the portal more productive.

  • To create your customized view you must register and login. A new tab will appear in the upper right hand corner. Click on "My Page" and select one of the "edit" buttons to add or change information.

  • Yes. From the college dropdown box, you can select your college's portal page. From the portal page you can link to the college website.

  • Within the portal registration process, we ask for your Social Security Number (SSN) once and only once. By design, this number is transmitted to us under the widely recognized https security protocol the one and only time that you supply it, and it is not stored anywhere in the CUNY portal. Well behind the scenes, we use a complex mathematical abstraction process that allows us to verify that the SSN entered for you is correct. To provide further protection, our process is designed so that it is impossible to re-construct the original SSN once it has been sent to us on that single occasion when you register.
