In Person:   Payments can be made with cash, check, or money order in 4-109N during office hours.

What if I cannot pay my entire balance?

 CUNY makes college more affordable by allowing you to better manage your payments over time using a convenient and secure plan with NelNet Business Solutions. There is a $40.00 enrollment fee each semester to participate in the plan.  To enroll, log into CUNYfirst Self-Service and go to your Student Center.  Go to Finances and select Enroll/Manage Payment Plan.  There is no summer contract available through NelNet.  For more information visit or call 888-470-6014.

What if my bill is covered by financial aid?

  Once you are on your CUNYfirst Student Center page, scroll down to the Finances section to review your charges and Pending Financial Aid.  When you click on “Account Inquiry”, the summary screen will allow you to figure out how much your payment should be. You should deduct your “Pending Financial Aid” amount from your “Outstanding Charges and Deposits.”

If your Pending Financial Aid is greater than the Outstanding Charges and Deposits, you do not have to make a payment to the College. However, if your Pending Financial Aid is less than your Outstanding Charges, you are required to pay the difference by the established due date.

What happens if I fail to settle my registration bill by the due date?
Your classes will be cancelled. You will have to re-register and pay a late fee of $25.

When and where do I pick up my financial aid check?

If you have direct deposit with your bank or financial institution, the financial aid check will be deposited directly into your account. However, if you don't have this option, the Financial Aid office will notify you of the disbursement date and checks will be mailed to the address on file.

How can I settle my bill with a Third Party Voucher?

Third party vouchers should be given to the Bursar, who will apply the payment to tuition. If you are to receive the money directly, you will be notified by the Bursar.

If I owe money for a previous semester, will my account be blocked?

There is a "Bursar stop" for those who don't pay all tuition from a previous semester. You will be notified that a "stop" has been placed on your records and you will not be able to access your transcript or register for a subsequent semseter until the account is settled in full.

I have received a 1098-T. What is this form for?

Every education institution must report and send you this form because it relates to your tuition and fees for a specific fiscal year. You must report this information to the Internal Revenue Service when you file your tax return.
