After registering for courses, the CUNYfirst system will generate a bill. The College does not mail tuition statements. The official tuition statement, or e-bill, includes all semester charges and payments and can be accessed through self-service in CUNYfirst: Student Center > Finances > [menu] Other Financial > e-bill

Upon request, the Bursar’s Office may print a free copy of the student’s e-bill for the last semester of attendance (or any semester in which a balance exists). Printed e-bills that do not meet the established criteria for free printing will be charged to the student account at a rate of $5.00 per duplicated document. The student will be required to pay this using any accepted method.

e-bill is a record of semester charges, payments and financial aid. Statements are generated per semester of enrollment and contain:

  • Tuition, fees and other charges
  • Student payments, including those made in-person and online (QuickPay)
  • Financial Aid payments, including those from federal, state or sponsor payers
  • Anticipated Aid – Financial Aid that has been authorized but is pending disbursement
  • Class schedule

e-bill is not proof of payment for education tax credits/tax filings. The appropriate form for this purpose is the 1098-T. Furthermore, e-bill is not a substitute for a transcript or enrollment verification, if such a document is required for scholarships, medical coverage, loan deferments, jury duty, car insurance etc. Course grades and GPA are not contained on e-bill.
