Tuition Payment Options

Attention Students

Dear Student:

The technical issue preventing students who use the Nelnet Payment Plan from settling their Spring 2017 tuition balance has been RESOLVED.

Those students who wish to settle their Spring 2017 tuition balance using a payment plan should immediately log into the CUNYFirst Self-Service Student Center. Select Finances, then click Enroll/Manage Your Payment Plan.

Any student who has not settled his or her balance by Thursday, January 12 at 5PM will automatically be de-registered from his or her courses and will need to re-register. Please note that required or preferred courses might not be available at the time of re-registration. Therefore, we recommend that you take immediate action to settle you Spring 2017 tuition balance.

The tuition balance for any student who successfully re-registers for Spring 2017 will be due on Monday, January 23rd. Those students who fail to settle this tuition bill by will automatically be de-registered from all of his or her courses on Tuesday, January 24th at the close of business, 7PM.

6 Ways To Pay

This is to advise you that CUNY will be making revisions to the procedures for utilizing a Credit or Debit card for tuition and fee payments.

Effective March 13, 2016, all Credit and Debit Card transactions will be processed via the University’s Payment Plan. The Payment Plan provides students and their families the option of paying their tuition and fees over a period of up to six months. This flexibility enables everyone to reduce the burden of paying all tuition and fees prior to the start of the academic term. This deferred payment plan continues to be an interest free benefit for students and their families.

Effective with the Summer 2016 semester, the Enrollment Fee for the payment plan will be $95 per term. For students and their families who opt for direct withdrawals from their bank accounts, a discount will be provided which will lower the Enrollment Fee to $40 per term.

The eCheck payment option through CUNYfirst Self-Service remains an alternative payment option that is cost effective since it does not require an Enrollment Fee.

We trust that these changes will cause minimum disruption, and allow our students to continue to have a variety of payment options.

Note: Credit Card Payments can ONLY be made through Nelnet Payment Plan as of March 13, 2016.

  1. Electronic Check (view how to pay online)
    CUNYfirst also accepts payment by electronic check. Similar to a debit card, e-check electronically debits your checking or savings account. To pay via e-check you will need to access CUNYfirst by going to https://home.cunyflrst.cuny.edu. Enter your Username and Password. You are required to enter your bank account and bank routing numbers. There is no convenience fee associated with this payment option.
