1. CUNY first 
2. You can access multiple things on it such as checking your tuition, financial aid refund , holds on your account , account activity , schedule , browse classes , etc 
3. Yes 
4. I would change the layout to make it easier for certain students who may not be familiar with CUNY first and it’s layout. 
5. Check my account activity , check my 1098 for taxes , check for any holds on my account  , browse courses when making my schedule ,  access degree works and FACTS to check  status for TAP . 
6. No 
7. I would because it can be easier to navigate off one site to access others instead of searching for them all the time and you have to use CF for a lot of things. 
8. No 
9. I don’t know 
10. In most ways it did if I didn’t have time to check in with my advisor , bursar or other areas having to do with my classes and transcripts, etc .
11. Sometimes because it may be difficult for certain students to grasp and it can also give you a head start on choosing classes and going over them with your advisor before taking them so you won’t take the same if not similar courses again.
12. It can be annoying if the deadline is close because then the class would be closed and you’d have to either come back next semester to take that course or take too many credits in one semester like I did because I needed it to graduate.
