FileNet – Students (Upload Documents in CUNYfirst)


Uploading a Student Document through CUNYfirst

There may be times when you are required to upload a scanned document, completed form, file or record to securely submit the following types of information to your college or the University:

  • Financial aid documents

  • Health services documents

  • Registrar/student record documents

Note that file names for your uploaded documents should be descriptive and include your name so they are easier for administrative staff to work with—especially if multiple files are uploaded concurrently. Avoid file names like Scan-129- 04042020.pdf or 20200404_133911.jpg.
