Please download the appropriate form and return it filled out to the Admissions Office with your $100 Commitment Deposit.

Submitting the deposit by the priority deadline will give you an early advisement and registration appointment date so you receive the schedule of classes and times best for you.

This non-refundable deposit will be credited in full to your tuition bill if you enroll at Queensborough for the upcoming semester. The Commitment Deposit will be waived for Veterans, CD students, and for students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of 3000 or less*.


Q: If I decided to go to another CUNY school after paying the fee, will I have to pay again at the other college?

A: Yes, the fee will not be refunded if you decide to enroll at another CUNY school or if you decide to attend a non-CUNY college.

Q: Will I be able to use the fee for the next semester if I cannot attend for the upcoming semester?

A: Yes, if you reactivate your application, your deposit will be held for the following semester and credited to your tuition bill; however if you cannot attend the following semester, you will lose the deposit.

Q: Can the deposit be waived for financial reasons?

A: Yes, if you applied for financial aid using the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) and your Student Aid Report (SAR) has an estimated family contribution (EFC) of  3000 or less, you may be waived from the commitment deposit.  If you qualify for a waiver, please submit your Admissions Response Form with an electronic printout of your SAR for the 2013-2014 FAFSA.

Q: Can the deposit be waived if I am a veteran?

A: Yes, it can be waived but you must present documentation of your discharge to the Admissions office before the deadline date.

Q: Do I have to pay the deposit if I am accepted into the College Discovery (CD) program?

A: No, the deposit will not be required if you are a College Discovery (CD) student and have already filed an application for financial aid. However, the deposit will be required if you do not qualify for the CD program based on your EFC.

Q: What if I do not pay my deposit by May1?

A. It is important that you make every effort to pay this fee before May 1 so that you are given an earlier date for advisement and registration. Classes fill up quickly and you want to receive the a schedule of the right classes at the right times. Those who pay after May 1 will be given a later date for advisement and registration, and may therefore find that many key classes and times are no longer available.
