Courses at Other Accredited Institutions (e Permit)

Return to The Grading System  

Currently enrolled degree students may take courses at other accredited institutions (CUNY or other) provided the appropriate procedures are followed. A department may refuse to authorize a permit if, in its judgment, it is inappropriate to do so.

Students wishing to apply for courses at another CUNY campus may apply to do so by registering for an E-permit through the CUNY portal at At the CUNY portal home page, you must log in to begin the process. Students wishing to register for courses at non-CUNY institutions must complete a permit form to attend another college. The form is available in the Records Division of the Office of the Registrar, 223 Hunter North.

In all cases, permits are authorized by the appropriate department and administered by the Office of the Registrar.

It is the responsibility of students who study at other institutions to have official transcripts of their work sent to the Office of the Registrar as soon as grades are posted. Effective fall 2004, grades for courses taken on permit at CUNY schools are posted to the student’s record and are computed in the GPA. All permit credits must be posted to student’s Hunter transcripts prior to graduation.

Note: Hunter students may not take courses on permit during their final semester prior to graduation.
