Tuition Refund Policy


Tuition will be refunded 100 percent for those courses which, at any time, are cancelled by the College.

During the first three weeks of the term,  students who officially withdraw through CUNYfirst from one of more classes are entitled to a partial cancellation of tuition charges only.  Mandatory fees cannot be cancelled after the start of the term.  The day of withdrawal as recorded on CUNYFirst determines the percentage of the cancellation of tuition charges.  Failure to attend class, merely giving notice to the instructor or advisor or stopping payment on a check is not considered an official withdrawal.

Students who pay their tuition bill in full and subsequently withdraw will have their refund calculated according to the Tuition Refund Schedule for the term in which the drop/withdrawal pertains.

Students who made a partial payment on their bill will have their tuition liability calculated according to the Tuition Refund Schedule. A reduction in tuition charges may not necessarily result in a refund and, in some instances, a tuition balance may still be due. Student activities fees and consolidated services fees are not refundable.

Lastly, withdrawing from one or more classes may impact the amount of Title IV Aid that you are entitled to. Click here for additional information on the impact of withdrawal on Title IV Aid.
