Spring 2024 Tuition & Fees

Our general hours for questions remain Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We ask that students submit any financial aid paperwork or pay the balance of their tuition by January 12, 2024 to avoid class cancellation and/or late payment fees.

Students are advised to review their bill by logging on to CUNYfirst https://home.cunyfirst.cuny.edu

After reviewing student information:

  • Payment is required for the difference between any anticipated aid appearing on your CUNYfirst account and the tuition and fee balance.
  • If the anticipated aid appearing on CUNYfirst covers the entire bill, no payment is due

‡ All students are required to pay several fees: Materials, Technology, Consolidated, and Student Activities Fees. In addition, students will be required to pay such fees as may be assessed from time to time by student referendum.

⁂ The first part-time year includes a mandatory summer session of six credits at $655/ credit for in-state students or $1,065/credit for out-of-state students, as well as fees for the summer session. Subsequent years do not require summer session.

Seat Deposit

To reserve a seat in the entering class, all admitted students are required to submit a non-refundable deposit of $250. When you receive your bill, the amount due will have been reduced by this amount. Information on deposit dates and schedules is included with the letter of admission and is determined by the date on which an offer of admission is made.

Payment Schedule, Late Payments and Unresolved Balances

Tuition and fees are due as scheduled by the Bursar. Failure to meet tuition and fee obligations will result in the cancellation of registration.

University regulations require that a late payment fee of $15 be charged to any student who is delinquent in paying tuition and fees by the established due date.

Students with an outstanding balance will be placed on hold. This prohibits students from registering for the next semester. Your account will be sent to a collection agency if bills remain unsettled after negotiating terms of payment. You will be responsible for all collection costs, in addition to whatever amounts you owe the college. In addition, non-payment or a default judgment against your account may be reported to a credit bureau and reflected in your credit report.

Requests for withdrawal from CUNY School of Law should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office before or during the first three weeks of class.

Student fees are not refundable.
