Tuition Payment Options
Important Notice that Affects ALL Registering Students: In accordance with The City University of New York (CUNY) guidelines, PAYMENT OF YOUR UPCOMING SEMESTER’S TUITION MUST BE PAID BY YOUR PAYMENT DUE DATE
IMPORTANT NOTICE: All Tuition and Fee Schedules are subject to change without notice at anytime upon action by the board of trustees of the City University of New York, regardless of the tuition and fee schedules in effect at the time of registration.
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.
Electronic Check (view new instructions for paying 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. 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.
