Campus Solutions: Instruction and Advising
Staff members who provide advising services to students will have easier access to information, using Advanced Advisement Tools:
- See, in real time, student transcripts, current class schedule, and contact information, with the ability to contact students directly through CUNYfirst.
- E-mail an individual student or all your student advisees.
- Contact your advisee’s instructors through CUNYfirst.
- A University-wide standard process will post grades electronically. This will enable quicker postings to student transcripts, which will support timely registration for pre- and corequisite requirements.
Activating Your Lehman E-Mail
CUNYfirst will send messages ONLY to your Lehman e-mail account. Please be sure that your account is activated.
Most faculty and staff members already have a Lehman e-mail account. The format follows this sequence: first name / period / last name @lehman.cuny.edu. Example: firstname.lastname@example.org. E-mail accounts for faculty and staff who were new to Lehman as of Fall 2011 were generated at the beginning of the semester; the same process was generated for Spring 2012. Contact the IT Help Desk in Information Technology Resources to check on the status of your account.
