CCNY Migrates To Microsoft 365

Dear CCNY Faculty and Staff,

CUNY has made the decision to move all email from the local campuses to the Cloud-based system, Microsoft 365 (M365). In this migration, the important thing to note is that your email address will not change.  It will still be in the domain.  This migration is supposed to take place at the end of this semester, so as to cause less disruption.  This is just the first of several emails to come as we prepare our campus for this migration.  I am writing to you now because CUNY just released a training schedule that has several classes on M365.  This is an opportunity for you to learn about the product that we will all be using in the near future.

CISTraining has scheduled several M365 training sessions through the end of the year and we look forward to having you learn with us! You can view the CISTraining training calendar  for upcoming webinars and register here. Remember to log in with your CUNY Login (, which is the same login you use to access CUNYfirst and Blackboard.
