What other costs are there for this program?
The answer is right there - systems vs. system. Our current systems, which are numerous, operate to conduct all our business at CUNY. Very few of them interact with each other. CUNYfirst will integrate all our financial, HR and student processes so that data can be used instantaneous across departments and across the university.

Additional fees associated with this Program: $822.00
When we retired CUPS (City University Personnel System), it remained up temporarily in read-only mode until CUNYfirst HCM stabilized. When SIMS (Student Information Management System) is retired, it will be phased out the same way we did with CUPS.
