Payment is accepted in person via cash, check or money order and online via the CUNYfirst student center with an electronic check.

All tuition and fees are determined by the City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees and are subject to change without notice. In the event of an increase in the tuition and fee prices, payments already made will be treated as a partial payment. Notification will be given to students concerning the amount owed and the deadline date to pay.

Students are required to pay their tuition/fees/housing balance by the posted due dates OR enroll in and maintain a term activated payment plan (Nelnet). Due dates are available on CUNY First and may vary upon the student's individual registration date. More information is available under the Finances tab of your CUNYfirst Student Center.
