When is my payment due?

Fall semester payments are due by July 17, 2020 for all students.  Spring semester payments are due by December 21, 2020 for all students.  Semester bills are e-mailed in early June and early December, respectively. Monthly statement of accounts are e-mailed and include any unpaid amounts, revisions or new charges. The due date for outstanding balances will be noted on each statement. 

Why am I billed for health insurance?—or—I already canceled it last year!

All students are required to have health insurance and are therefore billed for health insurance. If you have comparable coverage and do not wish this coverage, you must complete an online waiver. The deadline to waive the insurance is July 8, 2020. You will be billed each year and be required to waive each year to verify that you have coverage.

May I pay by credit card?

No. The College does not accept credit cards for tuition, room, board, and fees payments. You may pay by check, or by cash if you are paying in person. In addition, payments may be made by wire transfer; for information, please contact the Office of Student Accounts at (914) 395-2550.

Does the entire bill need to be paid in order to register?

Yes. Only students who have made the required payments on their accounts will be permitted to register or move into on-campus housing.

Will I be penalized if bills are not paid when due?

Yes, a late fee of 1% of the balance will be added to your account. The College also reserves the right to withhold degrees, diplomas, transcripts and grades until all charges are paid in full. And your eligibility for on-campus housing may be jeopardized.

When will I receive a check for any overpayment?

Any credit balance on account during a semester will be refunded upon request. Please allow five business days for processing of your request. You may call (914) 395-2550 to request a refund of a credit balance.

How do I know when proceeds from a loan result in a credit balance on my student account?

If you are receiving a Direct Loan, you will be notified when the loan funds are disbursed. If you have completed your applications in a timely manner, you should expect your loan to be disbursed by the first day of classes. You may call (914) 395-2550 to request a refund.

Why are the proceeds from my loan less than the total amount of the loan originally approved?

An origination/insurance fee of up to 3% of the amount of your Direct Loan will be deducted from your loan proceeds by your lender.
