Uploading your documents is easy with CUNYfirst’s secured Document Upload system!


There may be times when you are required to upload a scanned document, completed form, file or record to Bronx Community College. You are able to do this securely with CUNYfirst’s Document Upload system.

Please watch the instructional video below, or follow the written instructions below, for help with uploading your documents.

Here are some TIPS to consider when you upload your documents:

  • Uploading documents to CUNYfirst works best on a computer or laptop.
  • If you must upload documents using a mobile device, make sure that the device’s web browser app is set to “desktop mode” and the pop-up blocker is disabled.
  • It is preferred that you upload a .PDF file.
  • 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
    • GOOD EXAMPLE: J. SMITH, Tax Form
    • BAD EXAMPLE: Scan-129-04042020.pdf
