Change of Program ($18)

The fee(s) charged will cover one or more program changes made at the same time. Examples of changes incurring a fee: addition of a course or courses; changing from one course to another course; changing from one section of a course to another section of the same course. This fee is not applicable to college-initiated changes.
Late Payment ($15)
Students who are delinquent in paying tuition and fees will be required to pay this fee in addition to all outstanding bills to regain the privileges of good fiscal standing with the College which include the right to attend classes and access to one’s student records. If the student is required to pay a readmission fee, the nonpayment service fee shall be in addition, if appropriate.

Registration on or after the first official day of classes may incur a $25 fee.

Returned Check ($20)
Returned checks, paper or electronic, result in a $20 fee (per occurrence and regardless of reason). The student will no longer be permitted to pay by personal check, physical or electronic. Other accepted methods include money order, teller check, credit card (online) or payment plan (online). The student is required to settle their entire bill, including the returned check fee, before the official first day of classes. Accounts in a past-due status must be settled immediately to avoid Bursar holds and/or late fees.

- A declared intention to live permanently and maintain a principal residency in New York State
- Residence in a dormitory, hotel, or other temporary housing facility does not in itself establish New York State residency
- Generally, students in United States on any temporary visa are not considered New York State residents
