The College provides students with an email account upon matriculation to the institution and remains available while the student is enrolled or is active in their degree or certificate program. The campus-assigned student email account is the College’s official means of communication with all students. Students are responsible for all information sent to their campus email account. If a student chooses to assign an alternative e-mail as preferred in CUNYfirst, the student is still responsible for all information, including attachments, issued to the campus e-mail. Departments reserve the right to only communicate account sensitive information to the campus e-mail, regardless of whether an alternative e-mail is assigned as preferred.  Students should check their SLU email account regularly.

Student Accounts and Payment Services (SAPS) is the clearinghouse for all tuition revenue and the primary gatekeeper of your financial information. Our business operations are guided by courteous and efficient support to students, faculty, staff, and external organizations. We pride ourselves on integrity and accountability, enforcing appropriate fiscal practices throughout the campus community. SAPS is compliant with The City University of New York (CUNY), New York State (NYS), and the U.S Department of Education (USED).
