CUNYFirst stands for City University of New York Fully Integrated Resources and Services Tool. This tool provides electronic access to student records including transcripts, financial aid documents, etc. Students must set up their CUNYFirst account and following the instructions on the screen. Once students establish their CUNYFirst accounts, they are assigned an EMPL Identification Number (EMPLID). Students use this number throughout their time at CUNY to access resources. In addition to an EMPLID students are also assigned a CUNYFirst username, which is used as the Guttman Network username.
